The Clemson football team will take on the Alabama Crimson Tide in the National Championship. Here’s a look at the weather report for the game.
The Clemson football team took care of business against Notre Dame and improved to 14-0 on the season.
The only thing standing in the way of the Tigers and a third National Championship? The Alabama Crimson Tide.
The two programs have met the past three years in the College Football Playoff, with the Crimson Tide holding a 2-1 advantage.
As we head into the weekend before the National Championship, here’s a look at the weather report for Santa Clara and Levi’s Stadium in California.
National Championship Weather Report via AccuWeather:
Temperature at Game Time: 58
Wind: 11 mph
Chance of Precipitation: 80 percent
Chance of Precipitation at Game Time: 25 percent
For those that will be spending the weekend in the Bay area, you can expect some rain. There’s a 90 percent chance of rain on Saturday and a 50 percent chance on Sunday.
The high won’t be any hotter than 61, so don’t be expecting hot weather if you’re heading down.
On Monday, rain is in the forecast early in the day, but it dwindles down as we get into the afternoon. By the time the game kicks off at around 5 p.m. PST (8 p.m. EST), there’s only a 25 percent chance of rain.
Of course, in Charlotte there was only a 33 percent chance of rain at kickoff when the Tigers took on Pitt in the ACC Championship. And anybody that was there knows exactly how that played out.
I’d bring a rain jacket just in case, but it looks as if the rain is going to clear out before game time. That still could leave the field wet, though, at the time when we play the game.
