AFC Championship Game Day Forecast

Good Sunday bloggers,

The day we have been waiting for has arrived. The Chiefs are playing for the right to play in the Superbowl tonight. We have been going for cold weather and that is a certainty. But, could we see snow? There is a small disturbance in Nebraska that could bring flurries/very light snow for tailgating.  It is heading our way, and as you can see, it is rather small, and if it snows at all, even a few snowflakes could make people “freak out” a bit.  We are getting so many messages of “at least your forecast was wrong for game day, it didn’t turn out the way you thought”. And, we are like, “what are you talking about”. It is going to be around 14 degrees by the end of the game with wind chills possibly below zero.  What is it that was wrong with this prediction? It may rise to 20 or 22 for tailgating as that disturbance approaches, then guess what, we get a “back door” cold front.  Yes, a cold surge from the northeast arrives during the game, and if anything, that is the twist in the forecast.

At present course and speed this snow is timed for 11 AM to 3 PM. Right now it looks like flurries to a dusting. So, keep that in mind if you are headed to a watch party or the game.

8

SUNDAY: A warm front will be setting up near KC today with highs in the 30s to near 40 in Kansas. This warmer air will not make it this way as the disturbance heading this way will move by and push the colder air back west as it moves by. So, for the game, the temperatures will actually drop a few degrees with wind chill values near 0°.

1

SUNDAY (3 PM): You can see the patches of light snow. This could affect tailgating at Arrowhead. A dusting is possible, so keep this in mind if you are headed to a watch party or the game. Even a dusting can make it slick. Temperatures will be 15°-20°. The warm front has become a cold front and is pushing the warmer air farther away.

2

SUNDAY (6 PM): The wind will be from the east and northeast at 10-15 mph with the snowflakes moving away. Temperatures will begin to slip as the colder air pushes back in.

3

Here is the forecast for the AFC Championship game. There is a chance of flurries and very light snow 11 AM-3 PM that could dust the ground white. You can see from around Kickoff to the end of the game temperatures will drop a few degrees and the wind chill will be near zero.

6

Will we be able to see the eclipse, the Super(bowl) Blood (red) (KC)wolf moon? There is going to be a cloud problem for sure. But, after the little disturbance moves by we may see enough breaks or thinner clouds so that the moon will be visible.

10

We have another storm that will affect the middle of the USA Tuesday.

MONDAY: There will be lots of mid and high level clouds with highs 30°-35°. The warmer temperatures will be negated by a southeast wind at 15-25 mph, so wind chill values will be in the teens.

4

TUESDAY: It looks like we will be on the warmer side of the storm with the best chance of accumulating snow across Nebraska, Iowa and far northern Missouri. We will have the chance to see drizzle or a few light rain showers. If the drizzle comes in faster, it could start as freezing drizzle early Tuesday. Also, as the storm exits Tuesday afternoon and night we could see some snow showers.

5

It is another day where sports and weather are converging!

GO CHIEFS!

Have a great week.

We just need to hire up a good defense and we will win several super bowl games. Brady is getting old and will be done eventually. It’s just a matter of time. What a awesome seasons Chiefs had.

Tonight we get the double shit sandwich with extra shit-no super bowl and no eclipse.

Chiefs defense is a damn joke. I knew it was over after the coin toss. Mahomes and the offense did more than enough. Three third and longs. No stops. Bob Sutton needs to be fired.

we have earned every loss this year. This was no exception. Why didn’t we go short in the first quarter, guys open everywhere

Mahomes over-threw way too many passes into the end zone. Made me wonder if he was trying to over-compensate for the cold?

yeah, their defense came back to bite them…doesnt help to spot Tom Brady 14 points to start the game

did he touch it? Doesnt look like it, unless that one thumb touched it…impossible to know that from that angle. Since you cant know, seems like they cant overturn it.

The first half felt much like this last storm. Big build up leading up to the event, then major letdown. Maybe it will turn out be like last weekend’s storm, when it was a slow start but by the end of the event it prevailed!

Wow….that was a monster play for that Chiefs…interception in the end zone. HUGE play!!!! Patriots have been absolutely dominating the Chiefs on both sides of the ball…time for that Chiefs offense to step up now.

Heat, the Rams have shattered all sorts of offensive records. Granted they shouldn’t be in the SB. The no pi call was one of the worst non calls I’ve seen but I would hardly say they are one of the worst teams to ever be in a sb.

Heat Miser
Guest
Heat Miser

no, not ever…just in a while….lol. Im just talking about the last two games…looked terrible in the beginning in both games. Granted, I havent seen them play this season before that. But they won both games, so obviously they are dangerous

Stl78(winon,mn)

I watch an unhealthy AMT of football heat. In my opinion the Rams are very much a SB team. However, they shouldn’t b in there. The saints were absolutely robbed. Absolutely terrible non pi call that would have ended the game.

Heat Miser
Guest
Heat Miser

Okay guys…last two game Rams looked horrific in the first quarter, them manage to win ugly, barely at the end. Take advantage early and score some point when you play them. This is one of the worst teams I’ve seen go to the superbowl in a while, at least in terms of consistency.

If you get past the Patriots that is.

Broncos fan and have always loved to hate the Chiefs and relished in their early demise each season for many years. However, I will be pulling for them this time…they are really good and Chiefs fans really deserve this after so many years of frustration. I am doing a courtesy tomahawk chop as we speak. ROFL

Yea good luck KC! Don’t take it for granted. My Cowboys haven’t been back to this game since 1996 😳😤😡 Enjoy it, and as I wont wear any chiefs gear I told the wife I’ll wear a red shirt 😁. Good luck hope KC wins.

Who cares if the forecast is different today than what it was 2 days ago! It will be warmer than expected and your team is playing for a chance to b in the SB! Good luck KC!!!!!!!

I think the reason people are saying today’s forecast was a bust is because it was predicted to be five degrees at kickoff or something and it’s way warmer.

Heat Miser

Gary now predicting 18 at kickoff, 14 by end of game. While that’s warmer…its still cold and not THAT far off from the single digits predicted earlier.

What is getting ridiculous? It’s not all even that cold. Here in Saint Joe right now at 9 AM it’s 12°. Earlier in the week it was forecasted this morning to be well below zero.

I’m interested in Monday night into Tuesday I bet Something will sneak up on us with a couple inches of snow or accumulating sleet or ice.

Not happening. As for another larger snow event maybe late February. Then that will be it for 2019………..we are actually gonna have a real spring this year.
