Hurricane Game?
 
It's worth watching for sure. But new tropical depression has formed. http://tapatalk.imageshack.com/v2/14...08182adafd.jpg

Just talked to one of my weather friends in COLA... says if the eye of the hurricane shifts a little more left like they are thinking, could be a hurricane game. BUT he said even if it doesn't shift, it'll likely be heavy rain all game...

I am all over this because I am dying to watch some football!!!

The latest track looks OK. By gametime it would be pulling air from the west.

With this model, I think very positive. Only rain probably, no fierce wind. Glad to see.

I'm not really worried about the hurricane itself. I'm more concerned about the high humidity that would accompany a shower on a 94 degree August evening.

With the heat wave we have over us, any storm would bounce away.

A rain game would favor us, and not a pass happy A&M....

Columbia has double the average rainfall than College Station.

We will get nothing from that - the storm will be hundreds of miles from Columbia.

Your "weather friend" obviously doesn't know anything about the weather. Even when the eye of a hurricane is just off the coast, we rarely get much rain in Columbia - this one is predicted to be hundreds of miles off the coast.

All I know is, rain makes the ball slippery and doesn't benefit pass heavy teams. Bring it on!

Rained last year and they are still showing that Davis 75 yard TD run after the weather delay.

As long as it doesn't go Nascar on us we should be fine!

Slightly more rainfall in Columbia - 10%-15% more, tops.

True, but with that path, the most we could possibly get is a stray shower and probably not even that.

This is what he sent me from NHC Atlantic:
It is important to realize that a tropical cyclone is not a point. Their effects can span many hundreds of miles from the center. The area experiencing hurricane force (one-minute average wind speeds of at least 74 mph) and tropical storm force (one-minute average wind speeds of 39-73 mph) winds can extend well beyond the white areas shown enclosing the most likely track area of the center. If the cone shifts west towards Charleston or a point on the coast, Columbia could be on the outer edge of the hurricane and get possibly heavy rain. This has the strength to become a category 1 hurricane for now, more details tomorrow evening with track and how large the storm is. Luckily the gulf will be missed, not another Katrina and unless it gains serious strength it won't be anywhere near as damaging.

Lets hope for the storm to curve outward towards sea, not inward towards the coast!

I only hate rain b/c injuries are more likely

Yes, it's true it's not just a point, but if the center is that far from Columbia, we are not going to see anything from it.
