Ice storm warnings continue through the day Sunday into Sunday evening for the Kansas City metro area. While the NFL moved the Divisional playoff game between Kansas City and Pittsburgh in hopes to have better weather, there still is a possibility that freezing rain will continue into the start of Sunday night’s game.

Temperatures could be above freezing by the afternoon leading up to the game, but they will be too close to be certain. It is possible that freezing rain will make travel conditions to and from the stadium hazardous for fans going to the game. Confidence is low on how warm or cold temperatures will be by game time. Right now, they are predicted be at or slightly above freezing.
