Showers May Dampen World Cup Matches Thursday

Although no heavy rainfall is expected for any of the three scheduled World Cup Matches on Thursday, showers can still dampen the field at times.

The greatest threat for showers on Thursday will be during the Uruguay and England match in Sao Paulo. Cloudy skies and cool air are also on tap for this match, a stark contrast for both teams that played their first matches in muggy northern Brazil locations.

Showers could also dampen the match between Greece and Japan, set to take place during the evening in Natal.

Heavy rain produced flooding late last week in the Natal area; however, any rainfall this time around will generally be scattered showers.

The third match of the day, taking place during the early afternoon in Brasilia, is expected to be rain-free with seasonable temperatures as Colombia battles Ivory Coast.
