When the Raiders host the Browns in Oakland on Sunday, weather will be an issue in a blacked-out battle of 3-8 teams.
But there’s some good news, according to our friends at Weather.com. A wind advisory, with gusts of up to 50 miles per hour, expires at noon local time, an hour before kickoff. The predicted wind speeds during the hours in which the game will be played are in the range of only 10 miles per hour.
Rain is expected to continue during the game, but thunderstorms should subside in the morning hours. The area has been soaked with, in some locations, 10 inches of rain in recent days.
The best news is that the baseball infield at the Raiders’ stadium has been filled in for the year. Or maybe that’s bad news for those of us who long for the days when uniforms were periodically covered in mud and dirt.
