After a murky couple of days with thunderstorms in the forecast today and tomorrow, storms will finally move out of the area for good during the overnight hours between Friday and Saturday. Rain chances go down from over 75 percent to in the single digits.

Here’s the complete gameday forecast for tailgaters and those just attending the game:

  • Temperature around 6:00 AM CT: 66 degrees F
  • Temperature around 11:00 AM CT: 74 degrees F (can get as high as 80 during game time)
  • Status: Partly Cloudy
  • Chance of rain: 4-15 percent between 6:00 AM CT and 3:00 PM CT
  • Wind: 4-6 mph from the Northwest

Basically, it will be a mixture of clouds and sunshine throughout the morning and early afternoon with low wind. For early tailgaters, it’s going to be a little bit cool thanks to the storms passing through. It might be smart idea to wear a sweatshirt or a light jacket in the morning, and you’ll probably have to take it off around gametime as we’ll be getting to 80 degrees by the time the game is over.

Again, fans going to the game are getting very lucky. While they’re smaller chances than the next two days, thunderstorms and will resume around 10:00 AM on Sunday morning and the wind will pick up again for another couple of days.

Things may be a little bit damp in the tailgating lots and out on the field, but overall you couldn’t ask for a better current forecast for the game.
