For those planning on a day of festivities, it will be mostly sunny for most of the day with the temperature around 55 when you wake up. At kickoff, the temperature should be around 75 degrees. The heat index will be around 80 degrees, but will slowly decrease as the game continues.
The UV index and cloud cover will be relatively low all day so the day should be very pleasant. The humidity will also be low come kickoff. It will start around 77 percent when you wake up, but will be in the mid 40’s by kickoff.
After the game, the temperature should be around 68 degrees with a zero percent chance of rain. Once again, the wind will not be much of a factor, it should blow the same all day right around 5-10 miler per hour.
