Senior Day at Davis Wade awaits, and we're going to finally see some good weather to sit back, tailgate and watch the Dawgs!

Great weather will be in store for the tailgate! Sunny skies will be on the Junction for the most of the day. The temperature in the morning will be around the low 50s and it will get warmer throughout the day! It'll be a great day to throw the football because we will be seeing a strong south wind all day long which could slightly affect the pickup games and Dak Prescott's game plan.

The high temperature around 3 PM will be about 66° and it's going to be in the 60s for the Dawg Walk at 4:30. No need for the shades or the sunblock for this contest as temps will drop a tad as the sun sets into the mid-50s for kickoff. A hoodie or long-sleeve shirt may be the best way to go. By the end of the game, we'll be seeing temps hover around 50. But you want to make sure to clear your tailgate soon after the game because clouds will be rolling in and a chance of thunderstorms has the potential to rain on our parade starting around midnight. If you hear thunder roar, get indoors.

Be safe after the game and remember to wrap up your Bulldog experience in Maroon and White! Hail State!
