Kickoff Forecast: Florida at South Carolina

It's been a rough week and a half, but I am back into the forecasting game and I start off with today's college football game with Florida at South Carolina. Here's a look into the future (weatherwise).

Currently...
High pressure currently dominates the weather over the southeast as it sits over the central gulf coast with the pesky low sitting off shore of North Carolina. Isobars (lines of equal barometric pressure) show a slight pressure gradient, but winds seem relatively light inland. Temps are currently in the 60s in the area with fair skies being reported at Columbia Owens Downtown Airport.

Forecast...
The low over the Atlantic will slowly move out to sea through the end of the weekend. The pressure gradient will be weaker with NWS-Columbia calling for light winds today and tonight (maybe at 6 mph at the most from the west near kickoff time). Current weather conditions will persist and the weather should be very nice for today and tonight.

Kickoff (3:30 pm EST)...
Look for a temperature near 74 and mostly sunny with some upper-level cloudiness and light winds out of the west. Temps should be in the low 60s when the game ends this evening.

Go Gators!
