We mentioned the other day some weather is coming to Kansas City this weekend and how it will affect the Steelers-Chiefs game at Arrowhead on Sunday.
I saw this tweet from the National Weather Service which makes this freezing rain coming sound pretty severe. The Chiefs re-sodded the field and have a heating system underneath so I am guessing they can keep the field in pretty good shape.
This is something to monitor, especially for traveling to the game and the tailgating situation. We’ll know more as we get closer to the weekend. It would be unusual for a meteorologist to be completely wrong about this (right?).
Can't stress this enough, widespread freezing rain expected this weekend. Please prepare, as hazardous travel and power outages possible pic.twitter.com/D7u7GtcYlt— NWS Kansas City (@NWSKansasCity) January 11, 2017
