If you’re going to G-Day Game on Saturday, you might want to prepare for a light rain — although the forecast is looking much better than it was earlier.
The annual spring scrimmage for Georgia’s football team is scheduled to kick off at 2 p.m.
Per WSB-TV’s weather forecast, it will be a cloudy day with a 40% chance of rain, along with temperatures ranging from 56 to 42 degrees. It looks the rain will finish before kickoff.
Everything is on schedule for Saturday.
“We have same weather plan in place for G-Day as we do for all regular season games — mostly that relates to lightning,” a Georgia spokesperson told DawgNation.
“Basically there are procedures for lightning strikes that his within 25 miles, 15 miles and 8 miles. The 8-mile procedure is stadium evacuation and play is suspended. Play cannot resume for at least 30 minutes after any lightning strike.”
Not only is G-Day a good chance for UGA fans to get a preview of this season’s team, it’s also a big recruiting opportunity for the Bulldogs. Several of the nation’s top high school players are scheduled to be in attendance, per DawgNation’s Jeff Sentell.
The scrimmage will also be televised by ESPN’s SEC Network.
Gates will open for G-Day at 11 a.m., with an alumni flag football game scheduled for 11:20 a.m. The G-Day kickoff is 2:03 p.m.
