49ers vs. Jaguars: Weather won’t be a factor in Week 11 game
By Peter Panacy
The 49ers can feel somewhat thankful they’re traveling to Florida to face the Jaguars in the second half of the season when the weather won’t be too hot.
San Francisco 49ers fans may remember back at the very beginning of the 2019 season when the team had to travel to Florida for a Week 1 showdown against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, and the heat and humidity of a late-summer game in early September could have easily impacted the wear and tear on the players.
It did. Although the Niners used their defense to come away with an impressive 31-17 victory in what was the opening bout en route to a Super Bowl appearance.
Back in Florida again, this time to face the 2-7 Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 11, the 2021 edition of San Francisco won’t have to contend with overly hot or muggy weather that would otherwise be typical early in the season.
Probably good news for a 49ers team having to travel all the way east on a short week after knocking off the Los Angeles Rams on coldish Monday Night Football game at Levi’s Stadium.
49ers vs. Jaguars: Week 11 game weather
There’s always the possibility of heavy rain in Florida during fall, but the forecast for Sunday’s Week 11 contest at TIAA Bank Field is calling for only cloudy skies with a temperature at kickoff of 67 degrees. Humidity is at 87 percent, but it shouldn’t be as big a factor considering the lower temperature.
Winds are expected to be slight, too, coming out of the northeast at seven miles per hour, probably not having a big impact on the game either way.
The probability for rain increases to a maximum of just one percent over the duration of the game.

The Niners will be looking to string together a second win streak of the season and can get back to the .500 mark with a victory over the two-win Jaguars, who’ll also be looking to take advantage of a possible trap game over San Francisco.
Kickoff is at 1 p.m. ET on Sunday, Nov. 21.
