Weather Forecast For Tonights Big Game

Good morning,

Chiefs Forecast

The weather is looking pretty good for a huge game tonight between the Los Angeles Chargers and the Kansas City Chiefs.  The Chiefs have only lost two games this season, and they came close to winning both of those games (43-40 at New England, and 54-51 at the LA Rams).  There is a lot on the line tonight, and the weather looks like it will cooperate.  This storm could easily have been farther north and wetter in the Kansas City area.  Most of the rain will stay to the south and east of KC with just some light rain, and this will either end tonight, or become just a misty light rain with a north to northeast breeze at 15 mph. So, there will be some impact from the weather, just not as bad as it could have been.  This weather factor favors the Chiefs tonight and I am predicting a 34-24 victory.  The Chiefs have beaten Phillip Rivers and the Chargers nine times in a row. Let’s make it ten.


Most of the models have come in with the heaviest rain staying well southeast of KC.  There is some light rain developing early this morning and I am expecting a little bit of rain today, and then the good chance of it either completely stopping during the game, or just a misty light rain falling that still may have some impacts. The wind will be out of the north to northeast at around 10-20 mph.  It would have been much worse if this storm were just a bit farther north.

Looking into the last week of 2018 including Christmas:

As we have been discussing for a few weeks now, the weather pattern becomes favorable for Arctic air to build up over Canada and Alaska. There will be an increasing chance of an Arctic outbreak between Christmas and New Years.  The LRC is also supportive of a few candidates for some snow around Christmas Eve or Christmas Day, or a day or two later.  So, let’s pay attention to how the models start trending in this direction.  As many of you have experienced, the models are flawed, and the LRC provides the insight to know when the models are right, and when they are likely wrong.  In the past 24 hours, the models that had no hint of cold or snow have now flipped in the colder and snowier direction.  So, yes, there is a chance of a white Christmas, and we just have to see how it lines up.  I increased the chance from 25% to 30% a couple of days ago.  We will see how this trends.

I hope everyone has a great day.  Go Chiefs! And, thank you for sharing in this weather experience featuring Weather2020 and the LRC.  Go over to the Weather2020 blog to join in the conversation.
