It's finally Friday, so let's detail that weekend forecast for all those football games going on for Friday, Saturday and Sunday.
First, it was a very cold morning across the northeastern United States Friday. Temperatures dipped into the 20s for several locations in upstate New York as frost and freeze advisories remained hoisted for parts of New York, Vermont, New Hampshire and Maine.
Interestingly enough, the high in Denver on Thursday was a stifling 97 degrees! Temperatures will remain warm for the next few days across the mountain west as high pressure remains in control.
As far as our weather here in Jacksonville, we're calling for more of the same. Each day starting off pretty with few clouds then turning partly cloudy with isolated showers and thunderstorms; some of which could be on the strong to severe side with vivid lightning and torrential downpours. Not everybody will get wet but where it does rain, it could be nasty.
Here's a look at your gamecast for several games:
Orange Park vs. Oakleaf - Kickoff at 7 p.m.: Expect sticky, humid conditions with showers and storms in the area with a temperature around 84 degrees. The game should remain dry but keep an umbrella near by just in case.
Florida vs. University of Miami (@Miami) - Kickoff is at noon Saturday: Look for a partly to mostly cloudy morning with temperatures only bottoming out around 81 degrees for a low. High temperatures will be in the mid and upper 80s with a 40 percent chance of showers. The game should start dry but may have a few splash and dash showers after the half.
Florida State vs. Nevada (@FSU) - Kickoff is at 3:30 p.m.: Expect mostly sunny skies with high temperatures around 91 degrees. East winds around 5 mph.
If you're traveling to the games, good luck and be safe. On a scale of 1 to 44, the number of points my Texas A&M Aggies are projected to beat Sam Houston State by, I give this forecast for the weekend a 30.
