UF’s Homecoming weekend opens to a beautiful start in time for the Parade. Friday will be off to a chilly start in the early morning hours, but will warm quickly by the afternoon. Temperatures will be nearing 70 degrees under sunny skies . Temperatures will continue to rise during the parade, but they will still stay very comfortable with highs for Friday reaching the lower 70s.
Fans attending Gator Growl will likely need to carry along a jacket. While it won’t be as cool as Thursday night was (when patchy frost was expected), temperatures will cool quickly after sunset, falling into the 50s during the event. A light breeze out of the northeast might make it feel cooler at times. Skies will stay clear.
A week-long celebration of UF’s Homecoming will end with a perfect gameday. A light jacket may be needed in the morning for early tailgaters, but that can be shed by kickoff as temperatures warm well into the 70s. Skies will remain mostly sunny and the wind won’t be a factor. Go Gators!
