Georgia/Georgia Tech Forecast | News
I have spent many hours sitting in Sanford Stadium in Athens sweating while watching football games! Tech and UGA fans will have some much cooler air during the big game in Athens Saturday. Tailgaters will be pretty chilly. Since it's a noon game, tailgaters will be out early in the morning. Temperatures will be around 35 degrees at sunrise. It will slowly warm once the sun gets up. At game time, the temperature will only by around 45 degrees. There will also be a breeze coming in from the northwest at about 10-15mph. Sitting in the sunshine, it will actually feel OK. But in the shade, it will be feeling pretty chilly with that breeze.
By the end of the game, temperatures will only top off around 52 degrees. These temperatures are running about 10 degrees below average for this time of year. After the game, the temperatures will begin to drop again once the sun sets around 5:30. The evening temperatures will fall through the 40s!
Get ready for cold tailgating and a cool game!
