A beautiful game day in store followed by a rainy Sunday

Gameday Forecast
Overnight: Clear and calm with a low in the mid 50s. 

Friday: A chance of fog in the morning will turn into a nice sunny day with a high of around 82. Winds out of the easy will pick up to 5-8 mph through the day.  A few clouds will roll in by night as the low drops to around 58.

Saturday: A beautiful day for the Western vs. Navy game as mostly sunny skies will persist over the course of the day allowing temperature to climb to the mid 80s.  A light wind from the east will die down overnight with the temperature dropping down to around 60.

Sunday: Sunday is not looking to be quite as nice as cloudy skies will consume the day along with a 60% chance of rain.  Some areas may receive up to a quarter of an inch of rain, although most areas should only receive a tenth of an inch.  A high in the low 70s with a low of around 60.

Discussion: The nice Friday and first half of the weekend will be a result of an area of high pressure parked over us.  This ridge of high pressure will stick around through Saturday until a cold front forces the ridge off to the east by Sunday morning.  The timing of this front and the associated precipitation appears to be morning to afternoon hours.  Although some thunderstorms will be possible along the front, nothing severe is expected at this time. And most importantly… GO TOPS!!
