Storms could hit during Seahawks game

Seahawks fans – and players – should be prepared for rainy weather Sunday afternoon that could include brief periods of high wind, drenching rain – even brief thunderstorms.

A “Special Weather Statement” from the Weather Service urges Western Washington residents to secure garbage cans or other objects that could be blown away.

Johnny Burg, Weather Service meteorologist, said because the storms will be scattered through the area, it’s not known if they could cause a delay in the Seahawks game, similar to the half-hour delay in Denver at the opening game of the NFL season Sept. 5.

Bursts of winds in the 25-to-30 mph range are possible, and in some areas, as much as an inch of rain could fall in a short period of time.

Stormy weather is expected to begin about midday and last through the evening. The Seahawks host the San Francisco 49ers at CenturyLink Field at 5:30 p.m.
