WRUF Weather

Another Warm One in the Swamp


The weather pattern won’t change much between now and kickoff against Kentucky on Saturday.  Thereafter, there will be a wind shift Saturday evening that will welcome in some slightly cooler and drier air.  It’s a shame this relief from the heat won’t be felt in The Swamp unless a shower or thunderstorm cools it down.  Rain chances are in the 20 to 30 percent range, and if a cell were to move over the stadium, it would most-likely be in the second half.  Tailgaters and fans attending the game should prepare for a warm and humid afternoon, with very little wind to mix the air.  Temperatures will be in the upper 80s, and heat indices will likely be in the lower 90s.


8AM: 76° – mostly clear, light winds.

10AM: 81° – mostly sunny, light winds.

12:21PM (Kickoff): 86° – partly cloudy, northeast wind 8 mph.

2PM (Halftime): 88° – building clouds (20% chance for shower), light winds.

4PM (End of Game):  84° – mostly cloudy (20% chance for shower), northeast 10 mph.

6PM (Drive Home):  81° – partly cloudy and less humid, northwest 12 mph.
