OT: Paging Eshiben5 (Spring Game Edition)

VT Football opens the new season this Saturday with the Spring Game. The current weather predictions say that we're looking at a high of 65, with a 90% chance of thunderstorms, and a 100% chance of me being drunk.

I'm putting the word out for our resident meteorologist so that we have a more accurate forecast than this guy:

If you're still around these parts Eshiben, let us know how many ponchos we're going to need! (Or on a more serious note: the likelihood that lightening may force the team to cancel the game).

Thanks.

That misspelling is so bad I'm just going to leave it. However, I really don't want to know the likelihood that "a drop in the level of the uterus during the last weeks of pregnancy" may force the team to cancel the game.

I found TKP after two rails from TOTS then walking back to my apartment and re-watching the 2012 Sugar Bowl. I woke up the next day with this username.

This is not a UVA game.

Also, to slightly hijack this thread if eshiben comes through, how bad are things looking for Bristol.

I also heard they put Blacksburg under a Beer Bong Watch. Isolated Bonging is possible.

Spring game on the 20th instead of 22nd would have been interesting. Bonging would likely have been more than isolated.

Please don't let this game get cancelled.

Sup fam! Fresh off the thesis defense here and am ready to come back to the east coast where I belong!

unfortunately I have some bad news with the forecast. It appears as though an upper level trough will be digging into the central US and cutting across towards VA in the next few days. The front end of these troughs can be attributed to developing low pressure systems and this one is no different. The low will form ~Tennessee and will sloooooowly drift southeast into South Carolina. A warm front is going to form along the northern end which is going to be providing a ton of rain in the region, just due to the moisture pulled up from the Gulf of Mexico. There will also be a decent amount of low level wind shear in the region which is usually a pretty good indicator of thunderstorm development, the Euro however doesn't particularly like the development of thunderstorms in the Shenandoah valley, just basically everywhere southwest and south of it.

All and all I'd expect about an inch of rain saturday, with the chance of some scattered thunderstorms. Its going to be a SUPER rainy weekend, light winds ~5 mph id guess. It wont be to chilly however, with the high hovering around 63 and the low dipping to about 50 at night. Sorry fam :\ Good news is if you've already made plans I fully expect to play the game still (although if Fuente is worried about playing in significant rain I'd understand if it were cancelled) as thunderstorms should be scattered and not consistent at all...might not even have em.

There is some good news! UVA will be getting rained on in their annual...um...spring "anything but football" festival. I expect a whopping -3 people to show up to the spring game as 3 of their players oversleep on the festival and miss it entirely. We should crush their attendance once again.

Well, at least us alabaster folk won't have to worry about the sun.

Play the game/practice in the rain so next year we can beat UNC 68-3 in a hurricane.

You will see this game, this upset and this sign next on ESPN Sportscenter. Virginia Tech 31 Miami 7

Believe most of rain will hold off until later tonight and tomorrow. Solid rain this morning, but now is just cloudy and random sprinkles. Ready for some football in Lane.

id still bring a poncho some of those scattered cells look pretty heavy, also someone take notes for me!
