On Saturday, the Seattle Seahawks and the San Francisco 49ers will compete in the first game of the NFL Wild Card Round. The two teams from the same division will play in San Francisco to see who will go to the next round.
But right now, the weather looks like it will be a problem for both teams. Mike Florio says that tonight, around the fourth quarter of the game, a heavy thunderstorm is expected based on today’s weather forecasts.
“Thunderstorms become a potential factor at 4:00 p.m. local time. With the (Seahawks-49ers) game starting at 1:30 p.m. PT, that puts a potential stoppage for lightning on the table in the fourth quarter of the game.”
Much discussed “weather game” for #49ers and #Seahawks may actually end up largely dry. While a shower is possible any time of the game, a line of heavy rain and storms probably doesn’t arrive near San Jose and Santa Clara, CA until 4-5pm PST… near end of the game! pic.twitter.com/cEAd77E6v6

Forecasts from the last few days showed that it was likely to rain a little bit during the 49ers vs. Seahawks game. But these new storms are a much bigger danger to the game. Teams might have to stop playing for safety’s sake.
The 49ers and the Seahawks got to the Wild Card Round in very different ways. Even though Jimmy Garoppolo and other key players were hurt, the 49ers won their last 10 games after a slow start. They are one of the teams that are most likely to win the NFC and go to the Super Bowl.

The Seahawks, on the other hand, got into the playoffs by getting off to a good start. But the way they finished the season makes it hard to believe they can do well in the playoffs. The 49ers’ ability to defeat their NFC West foes in the Wild Card Round will be tested.
