Consistent rain going to make for wet Sunday for Cleveland Browns vs. Pittsburgh Steelers: Game day weather forecast

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- While there’s sure to be plenty of excitement Sunday around FirstEnergy Stadium as the Cleveland Browns begin a new season, there is sure to be much less excitement regarding the weather forecast for the season opener.

Browns vs. Pittsburgh Steelers, FirstEnergy Stadium, Cleveland, 1 p.m.

According to the National Weather Service in Cleveland, there is a 100 percent chance of showers at FirstEnergy Stadium from noon until 6 p.m. Some could be heavy at times, as 1-2 inches of rainfall is possible.

The NWS also indicates, however, that there is very little chance for thunder, so a delay is unlikely.

As if the heavy rain won’t make it miserable enough Sunday, temperatures will linger in the 60s with a high near 68, making for a cool day as well as a wet one. There will be an East wind 15-18 mph, which gusts as high as 30 mph.
