Football forecast really feels like fall

Touchdown for cool weather

A local Nor'easter develops this weekend casting clouds and breeze over the First Coast. Imacts will be less Sunday but a spotty stray shower can't be ruled out at EverBank Field.

From high school to Jaguar football the weather will be cool enough for some comfortable tailgating. 

Temperatures will cool down after Friday and the winds increase Saturday but the rain chances will be low. A cold front will whip up the breeze after it passes by early Saturday morning. Look for Nor'easter conditions to develop with spotty showers near the coast Saturday and Sunday. 

A couple games will be played at night and you will certainty need a jacket. First will be a playoff game at Lee High School Friday night. They play host to the Leon Lions and it will be the first time hosting a home playoff since 1996.

Temperatures at kickoff start in the low 60s and quickly cool into the 50s during the game under clear skies. 

Saturday the Gators play the Gamecocks in the Swamp at noon. This will be the warmest game of the weekend with a kick off temperature in the mid 70s. Skies will begin to cloud up under breezy NE conditions. Any spotty showers should stay east of Gainesville.

In Tallahassee, the Eagles take on the Seminoles for a night game with dry and clear skies. It will be cool with a dip into the upper 50s by the 4th quarter.

Sunday the Jaguars play the Texans under mostly cloudy skies. It won't be as breezy compared to Saturday, but the NE flow will make for a slight morning chill before temperatures climb from 70 at the start to about 74 at 4 pm. Brief showers are also possible.
