Mother Nature making a questionable call for the Clemson game

Columbia (WACH) -- It`s gameday for the Clemson Tigers and the question is will Mother Nature be as generous to Athens, GA as she was to Columbia, SC on Thursday.

Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected to develop Saturday afternoon.

This could put a damper on tailgaters spending the afternoon preparing for the big game that is scheduled to kick at 5:30 p.m.

During the game rain chances will continue, but will gradually decrease throughout the game.

As far as lightning, there is a slight chance for thunderstorms between 5:30 and 7:00, which could lead to lightning delays.

After 7:00 the chances of lightning will decrease greatly in Athens, GA.
