The roof was closed on Wednesday, despite sunny skies and temperatures in the 80s.

That was probably the issue - the sunny skies.  It has been nice and dry (dry for Houston, anyway) with no rain in sight and good temps.  The problem is that at a certain time of day, the sun beams on the right side field boxes and bakes everyone.  The PNC Stadium (Dynamo-soccer) is the same -  The afternoon sun bakes everyone on the right side.  In the middle of summer, it goes behind a building at around 6:30 then feels okay even on the hottest of evenings.

Oh, and airflow sucks because Houston is in a bloody swamp.
