The weather might play “spoiled sport” on Saturday in Santa Clara and ruin fans’ hopes of watching an exciting game.
What is the weather forecast for the game- Seahawks vs 49ers?
The weather forecast says that it will most definitely rain on Saturday. The rain forecast for the 49ers’ home game against the Seahawks is not good. On Saturday, in Santa Clara, where Levi’s Stadium is located, there is a 100% probability of rain, according to Weather.com. Temperatures will range from a high of 58 degrees to a low of 49 degrees today.
If the game lasts three hours from kickoff to the final whistle, then the highest likelihood of rain is at 7 p.m. ET, when temperatures in Santa Clara will have dropped to around 56 degrees. After that, we can anticipate a deterioration in the weather, with the likelihood of rainfall rising to 79% and the temperature falling once more to 54%.
After heavy rainfall, it will be very difficult for the players to give their 100% on the field as they will have problems while running and the ball being wet will be hard to grip, creating massive issues while passing and receiving.
As fan Football fans we can all pray and hope for a sunny day. Will the rain ruin the match? We hope not. Stay tuned for more updates.
