The Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs may play in some adverse weather conditions tonight, probably way sooner than either team expected.
No, it won’t be that classic Arrowhead bone chilling cold coming into play, but rather high winds and maybe thunderstorms.
Here’s the latest update on what it’s doing about 3.5 hours before kickoff.
21 mph winds in KC.

And here was the forecast this morning.
Muggy/overcast this morning in KC, storm clouds visible from hotel room. 50% chance of t-storms, could be a classic slug fest in the rain.

The current hour by hour weather in Kansas City doesn’t look horrible. Weather.com says the wind should die down to about 12 MPH during the game and is only pinning the chance of rain throughout the night at 20 percent.
Regardless, it’s the midwest, so things can change in a hurry.
Let’s just hope in a game where Peyton Manning desperately needs to get back on track the weather cooperates. It’s the least the Broncos Gods could do.
