Heavy Rain Not on Tap for Next US World Cup Match

The World Cup action is heating up in the "Round of 16" play as the United States is set to face Belgium on Tuesday, without the threat of soaking rain. meteorologists will be closely monitoring the weather forecast for the big match Tuesday, since Brazil is so vast and has different weather conditions in various locations.

At this time, meteorologists expect some clouds with a passing shower during the match.

Play should not be interrupted, so fans will be able to enjoy the action and cheer on their respective teams.

Conditions will also be better for players, unlike what the U.S. players faced last Thursday during the match against Germany in Recife.

Temperatures will rise into the lower 80s F (upper 20s C) during the time of the match and humidity will be at seasonable levels.

Before the United States game, a much different weather story will play out for the Germany versus Algeria match on Monday in Porto Alegre.

During this match, some rain and drizzle can be expected and a cool breeze out of the northwest will make players and fans grab their rain gear.

France versus Nigeria on Monday will see sunny conditions with a light breeze and temperatures rising into the lower 80s F (upper 20s C).
