AUSTIN (KXAN) — Texas football fans heading to DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium on Saturday need to dress for the coldest game of the season.
As the Longhorns take on TCU Saturday at 6:30 p.m., kickoff temperatures will be near 51° under mostly clear skies with north winds of 5-15 miles per hour. Temperatures by the end of the game will dip to 44° — cold enough to generate a wind chill temperature in parts of the stadium as cold as 39°.
A forecast high temperature of 57° in Austin this Saturday will make for the coldest Texas football gameday since Nov. 26, 2021 when the high temperature was also 57°.
Saturday’s game will be more than 30 degrees colder than any other home game this year.
2022 Texas home gameday high temperatures
- Sep. 3 v. ULM: 90°
- Sep. 10 v. Alabama: 95°
- Sep. 17 v. UTSA: 98°
- Oct. 1 v. West Virginia: 89°
- Oct. 15 v. Iowa State: 95°
Those heading to ESPN College Gameday during the day Saturday will need long sleeves and a light jacket. By 10:30 p.m., however, we recommend a heavier jacket, hat and gloves. The wind chill will be especially uncomfortable in exposed upper bleachers at DKR-Texas Memorial Stadium.
This colder-than-normal November weather is expected to continue through the entirety of next work week as reinforcing pushes of Canadian air arrive.
