If you’re heading to Tuscaloosa for the Texas A&M football game against Alabama, here’s the weather report for the game on Saturday afternoon.
Alabama enters the game 3-0 after destroying its first three opponents including Ole Miss 62-7 last week in Oxford. For Texas A&M football, they enter 2-1 after beating Northwestern State and Louisiana-Monroe and falling to No. 2 Clemson 28-26.
Before we get to the weather report, here’s a little history regarding the match up. The Crimson Tide lead the series 8-2. The two victories by the Aggies came in the 1968 Cotton Bowl and in 2012 when the team was led by Johnny Manziel.
With that in mind, we wanted to remind all Aggies and Crimson Tide to pay attention to this weekend’s weather report. Guess what? There’s no rain in the forecast.
For those planning on a day of festivities, the sun will be out early and will stay out all day. The temperature will be in the mid 70’s when you wake up and will increase all the way up to kickoff. At kickoff, the temperature should be around 90 degrees. The heat index could approach 100 degrees so make sure to take precaution if you plan on being outside the entire day.
The percentage chance of rain actually says 0% which is nice since rain has been a threat in the last two games. The wind will also not be a major factor. It will be coming out of the SE at 5-7 miles per hour gusting upwards of 10 miles per hour all day.
The UV index increases up until kickoff and then will reduce as the day and game goes on. Please remember to hydrate and bring plenty of sunscreen. There will be cloud cover, the experts expect between 15-25% throughout the day. The humidity will start in the 70’s and will steadily decrease throughout the day. At kickoff, the humidity should be around 50%.
The weather will be wonderful, I made the trip with my two kids to Tuscaloosa two years ago, for those making the trip this year have fun and be safe. Let’s go Aggies.
