Default Re: 97 On Thursday. How do YOU stay cool?

We've got a guy on TexAgs that is a pro, and he provides us gameday weather updates ~10 days out of the game.

His most recent update looks rather promising...

***25 Aug 1:04 PM Update***

Doc AFA Weather Forecast Record last year was 11-1. Thanks be to God and the spot-on Air Force Weather Agency Ensembles!

***NOTE: If you want updates on game day, please go follow me on Twitter...@Doc_Sanger. This is how I am updating my followers as kick off draws closer. I will also revise this thread once a day. Finally, Gabe has been kind enough to have me pre-record the game day forecast on the Thursday Fan Show.

Just made some cosmetic changes to bump up the temperatures a bit and cut back on the winds as Cristobal will be a long way from USC and may not even be a storm due to a ton of dry air, vertical wind shear, and upwelling of cold water below it. The humidity levels will still be at very tolerable levels with dew points only in the upper-50s (typically in low-mid 70s)!

BOTTOM LINE: The late summer weather will be nearly perfect for Yell, tailgating, and the game with mostly sunny skies, warm temperatures, and only moderate humidity levels.

Midnight Yell Practice: Clear and warm. The temperature will be around 71F with southerly winds at 5 mph. Relative humidity of around 70%.

Tailgate Weather: Mostly sunny and warm. Southerly winds at 5-10 mph. The temperature at daybreak will be around 69F before rising to upper 80s by early afternoon before reaching a high of 91. The relative humidity will start off around 75% before dropping to around 35% by the early afternoon.

Kickoff Weather: Sunny and warm southerly winds at 5-10 mph.

Temp: 86F at kickoff, 83F at half, and 79F by end of game
Relative Humidity: 35-45%
Heat Index: Mid-80s
Winds: Southerly at 5-10 mph
Chance of Rain: < 5%
Chance of Thunderstorms: Near 0%

Flying Weather (for those coming by private/commercial air): Near 100% chance of VFR conditions (ceiling/visibility > than 3000 feet/3 miles) from Wednesday morning through Friday morning.

Cheers,

Doc AFA

If you plan on drinking, I would wait until 4. Drink water behind every drink you have and drink Gatorade from 12 to 4. You'll be fine.

WISTV uses their guidance off a bundled system called WSI & "Future-Cast" which is basically raw model output from the GFS & WRF depending on the distance of time. In other words, it is raw numbers that one computer model (the GFS) says it will be at the time. If you are interested, you can check out the raw numbers by going here http://wxweb.meteostar.com/sample/sa...html?text=KCAE (thats for columbia). Some of the experienced weather guys will put their own factors into the official forecast though.


The Weather Channel does the same thing, but generally for their local forecasts only use the GFS raw numbers (unless it is a special weather event happening).

I highly suggest using the National Weather Service for your forecasts because they generally take blends of multiple models and use human element to factor in model biases etc. You can go to http://noaa.gov and put the zip code in.


As of this post here are the forecast temps:
Weather Channel : 97
WISTV: 92
WLTX: 98
Intellicast: 97
Wunderground: 97
National Weather Service: 94


I'd say the temp will be from 94-98 then. 4 degree difference depening on any clouds etc that may form.


Keep in mind, the high would have peaked and temps would be dropping by game time.

Jim Gandy on WLTX is a nationally know meteorologist and consults the White House on weather. In general, he is probably the most accurate on the Columbia area stations.

Good point. He's been around for quite a while and was the only meteorologist who had the guts to put his evolution/landfall of Hurricane Hugo out there when all other sources disagreed. (he ended up right).

More often than not, he's great on the overall scale of weather... but nobody is perfect with exact temps. :P

Seems like everyday, I read the National Weather Service's scientific forecast discussion and they are either raising or lowering temps in the forecast as the day goes on due to "showers" or "clouds" or "too much sun than forecast" etc.
