It looks like our run of perfect weather for Ohio State football Saturdays might come to an end today with scattered thunderstorms affecting the tailgate scene in Columbus and a lingering chance of further rain that may carry into the game between No. 6 Ohio State and Miami (Ohio) today.
For the 3:30 p.m. kickoff, expect a high of 85º under mostly cloudy skies and a 25% chance of rain in the first quarter of the game. Wind won't have an effect on gameplay, however, coming in at 8 mph out of the southwest.
As the game moves into the second half, look for the temperature to dip into the low 80s and the threat of rain to abate with just a 10% chance of precipitation in the 4th quarter.
For you tailgaters, dress to stay dry, as the forecast calls for scattered thunderstorms between 9 a.m. and noon, peaking at a 45% chance of rain in that span.
