Severe weather conditions with scattered thunderstorms and rain are in Friday’s forecast and that could put a damper on the homecoming football game and festivities at Memorial Stadium starting at 7 p.m.

With an eye on the skies, preparations are in place should wet weather arrive.

“We perform no matter what,” freshman Red Rhythm member Katy Graham said. “We perform even if it’s raining. We would end up wearing a different top and our ponchos during the actual halftime show and the only reason we won’t perform is if there is lightning.”

Band is also taking a similar approach to the weather.

“We will get ponchos to cover our instruments,” senior Xena El Shamy said. “If it starts thundering we will leave because the brass instruments might get struck by lightning,”

The possibility of severe weather could also inconvenience students who have been nominated for homecoming court.

“I would feel iffy about it because everybody wants to find out,” senior king nominee Zion Richardson. “At the pep rally they do their thing saying come to the game to find out who Homecoming King and Queen are. Then you go to the game to find out but it rains so you have to wait till the dance. It’s a lot of anxiety, you have to get nominated then people have to vote for you. It’s definitely an inconvenience, but it’s something you definitely want to know sooner than later.
