Stormy forecast threatens Sunday's 'Battle of Ohio'


Severe weather due to arrive Sunday afternoon could make the "Battle of Ohio" Browns vs. Bengals game windy and wet.

The weather "may not be ideal" for fans headed to Paul Brown Stadium for the 1 p.m. game, said Storm Center 7 Chief Meteorologist Jamie Simpson.

Simpson said straight line winds will be the primary threat, but we could see a weak tornado similar to those that hit Halloween night.

"Rain will fall at times and winds will be enough to blow away items at any pre-game tailgating," Simpson said. "Towards the end of the game and afterwards we can't rule out some thunder and lightning and even stronger winds."

Wind gusts will be around 30 mph and temperatures will increase to the upper 60s before thunderstorms usher in a cold front late Sunday afternoon.

Winds could increase to 50-60 mph, but the severity of the weather will depend on how much sun we get, Simpson said.

"The lack of sun may limit the strength of these storms which may limit how strong the winds will be," he said. "We'll just have to wait and see how things play out."

Saturday will be cloudy and warmer with highs near 60, then rain will start to fall during the overnight hours.
