The North Carolina Tar Heels and Liberty Flames will kick off tomorrow at 6 o’clock in Kenan Stadium. Tar Heel fans worried about hot weather for the game need not worry, for a few reasons. One, the game kicks off at six, meaning that by the time the second half rolls around, the sun should be tucked behind the west end zone. Also, tomorrow’s weather should be absolutely beautiful if the sun can come out from hiding behind the clouds.
Here is a full weather report for tomorrow and for the game between the Tar Heels and Flames.
The weather for Chapel Hill on Saturday August 30th will be partly cloudy with a stray shower or thunderstorm possible. Weather.com lists the chance of rain for Chapel Hill at 20%, so you shouldn’t worry about having to pack your poncho for the stadium or umbrella for your tailgate. The high is 89 degrees and Weather.com has the temperature right at a comfortable 87 degrees for kickoff.
The sun will set tomorrow at approximately 7:47, so the lights will be on for the second half. That should make for a nice cool viewing experience for the fans out in the bleachers on the side of the away bench.
The temperature should cool down into the high 70s by the end of the game.Wind shouldn’t be a factor during the game either, as Weather.com lists the winds at 6 miles per hour coming from the South/Southeast at kickoff time.
Overall, it should be a really good afternoon and evening for football. So if you don’t already have tickets, go find some on Stubhub and come out to Kenan early and be loud to watch the Tar Heels take on the Flames in what Mel Kiper Jr. called the third most scenic stadium in college football!
