Temps "Rise Up" for Falcons Tailgating!
Temps "Rise Up" for Falcons Tailgating!

Are you ready to Rise Up?  That's the buzz word this weekend all around Atlanta.  That phrase can also apply to the temperatures for game day.  The weather will be great for all of the tailgaters around the dome Sunday morning and afternoon. 

Here's a specific look at what to expect.  There will be a long time frame for tailgating Sunday since the game is at 3pm.  Some folks will be getting there around sunrise (7:41am) to set up their tents, grills, and smokers.  Early in the morning, it will be chilly.  We will start off the day ih the upper 30s.  Once the sun comes up, the warming process will begin.  We will have some pretty big jumps from hour to hour as the temperatures warm up.  Here's a look at morning temperatures:






By lunchtime, it will be more comfortable with a 56 degree temp at noon with plenty of sun.  The temperatures will continue to warm up as we get closer to game time.  For folks who are arriving at the dome just before game time, temperatures will be getting up into the lower 60s.




For the ride home after the game, it will be mostly clear.  The sun sets just before 6pm.  It will be getting darker, with temperatures cooling down after the game.  It will be 55 degrees around 7pm.

Enjoy the game and GO FALCONS!
