2011 BCS Championship: The Weather In Glendale, Arizona Will Be Perfect For Tailgating

Here in Atlanta, the weathermen are predicting a large cold front to move in this weekend that could potentially drop a few inches of snow in the city on Monday. In Glendale, Arizona, the weather is unsurprisingly much nicer. 

Weather.com is predicting a pretty consistent temperature range for the next few days, with highs in the 60s and the lows barely dropping into the high-30s. There is also a 0% chance of precipitation across the board for the next week.

There isn't much of a variation in the predictions from other sources as well. AccuWeather.com has pretty much the exact same forecast, as do most of the other sites. 

How will the weather affect the game? It won't, as The University of Phoenix Stadium has a retractable roof. With the kickoff at 8:30 p.m. EST, the 6:30 p.m. local time could mean that the roof might be open at kickoff, but most likely will not be. The temperatures will be great for the tailgating during the day however.
