The weather forecast for tonight’s Appalachian State vs. Georgia Southern game is becoming the key story of this Sun Belt matchup.
The Appalachian State Mountaineers moved to No. 20 in the latest AP Top 25 poll, and are facing a rivalry game against Georgia Southern on a short week.
App State is a big 15-point home favorite, but as the saying goes, you can “throw the records out the window” when rivals get together.

In addition, the Mountaineers will have to dodge a brutal forecast that includes rain, severe winds, plummeting temperatures and, yes, the potential for snow. Woof.

Georgia Southern vs. Appalachian State Weather Forecast
This total sat at 50 as recently as Monday afternoon, but an ugly weather forecast has driven it down to 44.5.
According to Sports Insights’ hourly weather breakdown, 19-20 mph breezes are expected at Kidd Brewer Stadium, and precipitation is in the picture as well.
And as an App State alum, I know where to go when it comes to forecasts for Boone, N.C., which is a tricky place to accurately predict weather due to its mountain location.
Per Booneweather.com, the site all locals use, temperatures will dip into the 30s on Thursday night and potentially into the high 20s, including 15-25 winds and gusts up to 55 mph!
But that’s not all.
There’s even a chance of snow flurries falling during the game.
I’ve spent plenty of evenings at Kidd Brewer Stadium in similar weather, and let me tell you, there aren’t enough airplane bottles in the world — or “nips” as I’ve learned they’re referred to in New England — to stop those chilly gusts from cutting right through to your bones.
The conditions will be far from ideal for explosive offensive play, and the over/under movement we’ve already seen confirms this.
