As many of you know, my daughter (named MGoKid by some on the board) is a SSgt and Meteorologist for the USAF, stationed at Warner Robbins AFB, near Atlanta. She has responsibilty for the eastern half of the US. She is a huge Michigan Fan and gets to the Big House every couple of years with Pops. Her Commanding Officer (A Georgia Bulldog Grad) knows that I am a Michigan Grad Student and Season Ticket holder so he does not mind her giving me Official USAF Forecasts on game days.
So she is providing hourly forecasts to the USAF on Tropical Depression 11. TD 11 is currently several hundred miles off the coast of Florida but the storm track will turn due North tomorrow.
She tells me that the center of circulation will remain off the coast of Maryland/Delaware and the rain will begin in DC sometime Wednesday and carry through the weekend. The center of circulation will be well past the DC area this weekend but rain will remain.
Her game-time forecast is for very low clouds, IFR conditions with rain. NNE winds at 20 MPH. Temperature 57F and 65% chance of rain lasting the entire game. The area will get a few inches of rain starting Wednesday so the field will likely be sloppy. There will be a high pressure system inland that should keep the heavy weather out to sea. So if you are planning a trip to the DC area, take your rain gear.
She cautioned me that forecasts are less reliable more than 36 hours out. She will update me daily and I will relay any information as I get it from her.
