Severe weather alert in Cincinnati, Browns might not fly home

Adam Jones AP

Severe weather is expected to affect today’s Browns-Bengals game in Cincinnati, and it has affected the Browns’ travel plans as well.

With the weather expected to get worse as the afternoon goes on, the Browns are making alternate travel plans to get back to Cleveland in case their flight gets delayed. Tony Grossi of ESPNCleveland.com reports that the Browns are making arrangements to have buses available after the game. (Cleveland is about a four-hour drive from Cincinnati.)

Browns-Bengals kicks off at 1 p.m. Eastern, and the National Weather Service says there’s a high risk for severe weather this afternoon and evening. High winds, large hail, heavy rain, lightning and potentially tornadoes are in the forecast. The most severe weather is expected between 4 p.m. and 9 p.m., right when the Browns would be flying home.

Which means the Browns may not be flying home.

    Let the Browns walk off their inevitable loss. They’ll be home Thursday.

    That’s cool, there will be plenty pound hounds there to help celebrate.

    I wonder why more teams don’t use busses for short trips like this anyway. It doesn’t take that much longer and you don’t have to worry about a player leaving a loaded gun in his carry-on.

    Better to be stuck in Cincinnati than Cleveland.

    The only thing worse than being stuck in Cincinnati is being stuck in Cleveland.

    Most rainy days in the United States – 3 of the TOP 8 are Ohio cities.

    Cincinnati, Cleveland, and Columbus.

    It’s a 4 hour drive – why did they fly in the 1st place? Now I know why a slice of pizza is $8.00

    WARNING: Browns may get blown out not by tornado but by bengals.

    Live in Cincy- lived in Cleve. Cle-town has it all over Cincy – lake, Culture, downtown, great neighborhoods, and a confident attitude – Cincy isn’t in the consideration set for comparison. Cincy Lil sister always looking for attention. Cincy is vanilla ice cream
