Latest Forecast - Drenching Rain at Kickoff

Recommended Posts

Doesn't matter how you win, as long as you win. 10 years from now, nobody will give a fug if poo was flowing from the skies, a win is a win.

 

yup, there is no asterisk next to Peyton Manning's ring.

And?

Al Green has a Christmas Album and so does Johnny Gill.

I'm not understanding what you're trying to imply, YOU SAID Brian McKnight's music wasn't suited for playoff football, when I said he's signing Christmas songs. Panthers are trying to be family friendly for the Holidays.

I don't ever worry about the rain unless it's also cold. With the temp in the 70's, I definitely won't worry. Just need a hat to keep the rain off my face. And make sure I have towels in the car. Ya'll are pussies!

“Severe weather is certainly possible Sunday afternoon and evening,” said Doug Outlaw, of the National Weather Service office in Greer, S.C.

 

Mild conditions are predicted for Saturday and Sunday, with upper 60s Saturday and lower 70s Sunday. Skies are expected to be mostly cloudy both days, but there will be breaks of sunshine.

 

By later Sunday, forecasters expect a cold front to be approaching the region. Showers are predicted to break out ahead of the front, and meteorologists say there will be enough instability in the atmosphere for thunderstorms to develop.

 

At this point, it appears as if the stormy weather wouldn’t arrive until late afternoon or evening, perhaps after the Carolina Panthers’ big game against the New Orleans Saints. But some shower activity is possible during the game.

I am nervously sticking by my call that heavy rain holds off until after the game. Most computer model guidance is leaning that way, save our GFS model, but that one has a habit of saying weather systems will move faster than they actually will. But, I can't rule out a shower during the game and there is a chance the heavier rain gets in by 4:00-4:30. If so, y'all will be glad you have the poncho on hand, so take one with you to the game.

 

For what it's worth, it will be fairly windy with a south to southwest wind gusting to about 25 mph.

 

If the heavier rain gets there before the game ends, there could be lightning with it that delays the game and maybe some stronger wind gusts of maybe 45 mph. There does appear to be a small chance for a severe storm as well but if I were a TV met I don't think I'd mention that on air just yet.

 

The start time of the rain is a really tough call, guys. Don't hang your friendly neighborhood weatherman if he's off on this one by a few hours.

Just curious,

Doesn't the fact the Saints have already played and won a game in pouring rain on grass that had over an hour stoppage this season mean they will be better adapted to a rain game since Panthers haven't played in rain all year? I would think rain would also affect attendance and people in the stands making noise also?

In that rain game, Saints defense only allowed a single TD on first drive after Drew gave them a short field with interception coming back in from 69 min rain delay, the other 7 points was from the second interception going for pick6, otherwise the saint offense moved the ball at will, but the 0-4 in redzone and 2 INTs were the only reason the score was closer than the game actually was. Brees had 26 completions for 322 yards.

A win in the "drenching" rain does absolutely nothing to further our football teams improvement. If our secondary wants to get tuned up before the playoffs, i would like to see them prove themselves against one of the best and show that they learned from their miscues on film, and learned more of what brees is all about. Ill take a win any way, but i would like to see each teams best foot forward and us establishing ourselves as a clear favorite.

 

This is practice for the Super Bowl. Super Bowl might have crazy weather.
