Fall is in the air! Can't wait to watch this game. Win or lose, I'm proud to be an FSU fan! Enough of my banter, lets get to it. Right now a strong cold push from Canada is making its way through the Midwest and Ohio river valley. By the end of the week we are going to have lows in the 40's here in St. Louis. Although this system isn't packing much of a punch with some much need rains this way it will stall and lay across the southeast this weekend. That's gonna be the main issue to keep an eye on.
Right now I believe the models are handling the frontal system well. I believe the chance for rain will be small at game time. I do believe a few pop up storms will occur in the Tallahassee region on Saturday afternoon but should diminish in coverage rapidly as the sun sets. Expect temps to be a bit cooler Saturday night as the frontal system will push through the region late Friday night. Temps will only reach 85 Saturday, enabling copious amounts of tailgating! Here's what I've got for the game.
Thunderstorm chances @ 20%
Temp at game-time: 75F falling into the 60's by games end
Chance of FSU beating the spread: 38% (banking on Stoops road game record)
