Don't fall out from shock, but Florida is finally in for a cooler weekend!

Wow, it's been a while. I never realized how much work it was to keep a blog up and running. I feel like I've been neglecting it for far too long...So I'm going to fix that.

The last few months have been unbearably hot in Florida. I dread walking to class or going for a run. Even at 6 am we have been warming up to the mid 70's with the dew point very close to that. Not fun. Not at all. I have been complaining every day for the last six months about the heat, and finally we are going to see some seasonal weather. Here's the deal. We've had these deep troughs cycling through the eastern US for the last month or so, and this weekend, a trough is finally going to allow some cool northern air to funnel down to us here in north Florida.

Check out that sexy trough. If you've been in N. Fl all summer, then I I'm telling you, this weekend is going to be amazing. With the Gators playing Alabama Saturday at 8pm, tailgaters are going to be in for the best afternoon of the season with temperatures dipping down into the lower 50's Saturday night. As if that isn't great enough already, with this cooler air, a high pressure is going to build over the eastern US, which means dry air! Finally, right? It has been far too long. 

This work of art might just be the best thing I've seen all week. With all this dry air and seasonal shifting that is going on, it won't surprise you that we don't have a chance for rain until late next week. It also looks like we'll keep it cool (for us) in the low to mid 80's through the next six days. 

As for any updates, I'm going to begin tv weathercasts on WRUF TV 6 starting tomorrow evening! Hopefully, at some point, I'll get a few of them up on youtube. Until then, you'll just have to deal with my unevenly spaced out blogs. Sorry. 

I hope everyone has an amazing weekend! GO GATORS!
