    Weather.com doesn't say, but accuweather has South Winds at 14, gusting to 25. Regardless, you can almost guarantee that there will be wind at JTS in November.

    Wow that changed a lot from this am. Same source too. Said high of 39 with the best chance of rain within the next ten days.

    Strange.

    There is no way to accurately forecast wind a week ahead of time. Its still pretty iffy even predicting the temperature and the rain chance.

    Just as long as Guyer keeps kicking, we should be fine with the wind. His line drives work much better than those high topsy turvy curvy thrills.

    Re: Early Forecast for Okla St

    NWS 7 day forcast says: Thursday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 46. No mention of wind, but the NWS never predicts wind that far out.

    Of course the game will be at night so I would assume the temp around gametime would be closer to 38-40 as when the sun goes down the temp falls off in a hurry this time of year.

    Re: Early Forecast for Okla St

    I was really hoping for -20, 40mph winds with gusts up to 60mph, and blizzard like conditions.

    Re: Early Forecast for Okla St

    I'm selfishly hoping for less wind than last game as it's just too stressful seeing the tents bow with those gusts...

    They can't predict the weather tomarrow, so we will see. I am sure it will change 6 more times in the next 6 days.

    Re: Early Forecast for Okla St

    A few ensemble members are hinting at a developing storm system by Friday east of the Rockies with a front draped across Iowa. These few have the potential for light rain given the front can be in the right location, however at this point the potential for precipitation still appears rather low. There is hope, but I would prepare for cloudy skies, kickoff temperature in the mid to upper 40s with the outside chance of a few sprinkles or light shower (30% or less).

    I agree.

    Looks like it could be windy, with some showers/thundershowers around the region.

    We'll see if the storm continues to develop this way, at 7 days out, models flip-flop quite a bit, or change their timing +/- 24hrs, but there is hope.
