KSL TV’s Chief Meteorologist Kevin Eubank says that Utah will be greeted by warm and sunny weather in Las Vegas.
The Utes are playing Northwestern in the Las Vegas Bowl on Saturday and the weather is looking great. While the stadium is indoors, outside we will see mostly sunny skies and temperatures in the 60s.
For fans looking to attend the Las Vegas Bowl, Eubank went on to say that the trip to Nevada should be smooth sailing on Thursday and Friday.
However, fans leaving early on Saturday should be ready for some rain and snow.
Travelling to the game is looking good. If you leave on Thursday or Friday, you will see partly cloudy skies and dry roads. If you are trying to get up early Saturday and race to Las Vegas before the game, you will encounter some rain and snow.

“We are looking forward to playing in the SRS Distribution Las Vegas Bowl,” Utah head coach Kyle Whittingham said a few weeks ago when the bowl was announced.” We have a lot of respect for the Big Ten and Northwestern, and we are excited to start preparing for a great atmosphere in Allegiant Stadium.”
