The BCS National Championship is still days away, but as many are starting to pack their bags and some already heading down a little early to enjoy some warmer weather, we thought we’d give you a forecast so you know what to expect.

The forecast for today and Thursday will be dry and partly sunny in Miami, with highs above average for Florida standards for this time of year, in the low 80s. The chance for hit-or-miss showers comes into the forecast Friday and continues through game day and next Tuesday, thanks to a weakening front that is forecast to sag southward towards south Florida and linger over the area. It is not going to rain all day, every day, but there will be the continued chance for an isolated shower, so just keep your rain gear handy.

With the front nearby, there will generally be a partly cloudy sky to mostly cloudy sky. Even with the front around, expect mild mornings and warm days with highs in the upper 70s and low 80s and morning lows in the mid to upper 60s.

The BCS National Championship starts at 8:30 pm eastern Monday evening, at Sun Life Stadium in Miami Gardens. For tailgaters before the game…expect high temperatures in the upper 70s during the mid afternoon, with kick off temperatures in the mid 70s and 4th quarter temperatures in the low 70s.  Have your umbrella handy in case an isolated shower pops up, otherwise enjoy the game!

We will continue to update the forecast as the game gets closer!  Safe travels if you are heading to Miami!
