A Quick Look Into Thursday Night Football

Good morning bloggers,

Yesterday’s Kansas City’s Chiefs incredible victory at Arrowhead Stadium about wiped me out.  The key play was obviously the 4th down and 9 completion for 48 yards, and there were many other incredible plays from our “magical” superstar in Patrick Mahomes.  It would have all been incredibly disappointing if it weren’t for a play that saved the game as well. Mahomes fumbled in overtime and Eric Fisher sprinted and dove onto the ball to secure it for the Chiefs.  That was also a great moment, a bit more subtle, however.  So, I am opening with the Chiefs 27-24 victory today in overtime because they have a short turn around and a game on Thursday  night. What will the weather be for Thursday nights game?  There is a storm that we have been monitoring for over a week already, and it is still on our “radar” for Thursday night.  If it dives and digs hard, then it may be dry Thursday evening for the game. The models trended farther north, however, on the overnight games.  Here are some of the models from the most recent runs, before the new ones that come out soon.


The model above is the GFS from the midnight model run, and the map below is the European model from the 6 PM model run.


This next map is the new FV3-GFS model valid at 6 PM Thursday night:


This is the same FV3-GFS showing the midnight Thursday night time frame:


And, this last map shows the Canadian model:


So, what do you think of all of these solutions?  The storm is still off the west coast, so once the energy comes in tonight and Tuesday we will learn a lot more.  This Canadian model has a blizzard just east of KC and the other models have wind and cold with various precipitation possibilities.  All I can say at the moment is Go Chiefs, uh, I mean there is a good chance of a significant weather factor on Thursday night ranging from windy and dry to windy and snowy, with all kinds of possibilities in between. I doubt we avoid the windy and cold. The only way the weather will look better for the game is if the storm dives way south, which is what it was showing just yesterday.

Have a great Monday.  I will be going in-depth on 41 Action News tonight.  I am still wiped out, and very, very happy about our 11-2 Chiefs right now.
