Messy conditions could be a factor in Super Bowl LV
This year’s Super Bowl could be a super mess.
Wednesday, NFL.com’s Ian Rapoport provided a weather update for the Tampa area for Sunday’s Super Bowl LV showdown between the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Kansas City Chiefs. It sounds like clear skies and sunshine are not really in the picture this weekend.
Per Rapoport, the projection is for a 71-degree day for the game, but with a 75% chance of thunderstorms. It’s certainly not ideal conditions, especially for two teams that put an emphasis on strong quarterback play.
According to @accuweather, thunderstorms are in the forecast for Super Bowl Sunday. The early prediction: 71 degrees with a 75% chance of rain 🤦🏻♂️☔️

But, it could be an entertaining game for the rest of us.
Forecasts change daily and weather is unpredictable. Who knows, we could have a perfectly dry day in Tampa for Sunday’s Super Bowl showdown. You never really know.
Early reports indicate rain, though. It would be interesting to see how much of an impact that forecast has on preparations over the next few days.
