You have 19 days until the Niners return to Levi's Stadium to take on da Bears for their first regular season home game. That's almost three weeks to plan your outfit. And if you're a faithful fan who has been attending games for years, it might actually require planning because (practically) tropical Santa Clara is warmer than Bayview.

We know fans complained about the "unbearable," 80-plus degree heat in the stadium during the preseason opener, but there are wind pattern differences as well. In Candlestick, fans expected gusts; in Levi's Stadium, it's more of a gentle breeze. If you're a seasoned microclimate pro, consider layering for Levi's Stadium just as you would in the city. But in this case, you'll be peeling layers, instead of adding them.
