The Baltimore Ravens are looking to make it to their first Super Bowl in over a decade but they'll have to get past the Kansas City Chiefs first. The Chiefs are no stranger to playing in an AFC Championship Game, having hosted the previous five and appearing in their sixth straight.
Fortunately, Baltimore gets to host this one and it's the first time in Ravens history that they'll be hosting the AFC title game. Fans are going to make sure to show up and be loud to make things as difficult as possible for Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, and the rest of the Chiefs offense.
For those who are planning to attend the game, what kind of weather should you be expecting?
Ravens vs. Chiefs weather forecast
As of this writing, NFL Weather says that it will be raining throughout the game. NFL Weather says it will "likely rain" throughout the first half and that there will be "definite rain" in the second half. Temperature wise, it won't be too bad, sitting at 46° at kickoff but feeling like 41°. Winds will be up to 12 MPH from the northeast with wind gusts up to 20 MPH.
By the time the fourth quarter rolls around, the rain is going to have picked up and the temperature will have only dropped a degree. The winds will also let up a bit, coming in around 9 MPH from the northeast.
The rain helps the Ravens big time, as running the ball is their bread and butter. They'll have no problem running the ball down Kansas City's throat and then occasionally throwing when the situation calls for it. If the Ravens can take advantage of the weather and build up a lead by half time, it should hopefully be difficult for the Chiefs to come back and make their fourth Super Bowl appearance in five years.
This feels like the Ravens' year to win it all so let's hope the weather is on their side and they can represent the AFC in the Super Bowl for the first time in 11 years.
