The anticipation is building for The University of Alabama Crimson Tide football season. Alabama’s Week 1 matchup will be with Utah State on Saturday, September 3 with a 6:30 p.m. kickoff at Bryant-Denny Stadium.

We know that the Crimson Tide fans are super excited for the season but we want you to be prepared for the tailgating, game, and post-game activities when it comes to the weather. For week one, It might be wise to bring along your rain gear.

James Spann, ABC 33/40, and Townsquare Media Tuscaloosa Chief Meteorologist said that “a passing shower or storm is a distinct possibility; otherwise it will be a warm, humid night with temperatures falling from the low 80s at kickoff into the 70s for most of the game.”

Saturday Night

Rain Gear

According to Roll Tide, “for safety and line-of-sight reasons, umbrellas are not allowed in Bryant-Denny Stadium. Please leave umbrellas in your vehicle prior to entering the stadium.”

Great suggested rain gear items are ponchos (they even make the prepackaged folded ponchos that you can store in your pocket or clear bag), rain jackets, rain boots, and don’t forget about protecting your phones.

Clear-Bag Policy

According to UA News Center, the “clear-bag policy will still be enforced this season. Bags must be made of clear plastic, vinyl, or PVC and cannot exceed 12 inches by 6 inches by 12 inches. Small clutch purses no larger than 4½ inches by 6 ½ inches are also permissible.”

As always I will closely monitor the weather situation for Alabama fans and provide quick updates. - @MaryKRadio
