High winds and a tornado threat will affect Bengals and Browns

Jonathan Daniel

The weather could impact multiple games throughout the upper Midwest and even the east coast on Sunday. Cincinnati sits square in the middle of that system.

Several of Sunday's games around the NFL will be impacted by the weather.

According to the Weather Channel, there's a significant chance of a tornado developing from Sunday's huge thunderstorm from, ranging from Chicago, to St. Louis, Memphis, Nashville and through Cincinnati. According to their Tornado threat index, Indiana and Illinois has a 90 percent chance of a tornado breaking out, whereas Ohio faces something in the neighborhood of 30-40 percent.

While there's a possibility of a tornado, there's a certainty for substantial winds. The National Weather Service has already issued a wind adversity from 10 a.m. Sunday morning through midnight. There will be sustained winds from the south at 15-25 miles per hour with gusts upwards to 50 MPH, writes the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Showers and a thunderstorm are possible before 3 p.m. then likely mainly after 4 p.m. – possibly during Sunday’s Bengals game hosting the Browns. Some storms could be severe in some areas producing heavy rain up to a quarter to half an inch.

Bengals offensive coordinator Jay Gruden better dust off the file, "how to run the football a lot".
