Women's World Cup: Thunderstorm May Threaten USA Versus Columbia Match

As the Round of 16 of the Women's World Cup continues into the first part of the week, only one match will be dealing with the threat of storms.

Fans heading to Commonwealth Stadium to see USA take on Columbia can expect very comfortable conditions, with temperatures in the lower 20s C (70s F) and mostly sunny skies.

While current indications point toward storm activity being most numerous after the match, a preceding stray shower or storm could still slow play for a time. Fans should come prepared with a rain coat in case storms develop before the game is over and move through Edmonton.

The first game of the day, Norway versus England, should not be hampered by any weather-related delays.

Fans and players can expect sunny skies and temperatures reaching the upper 20s C (80s F) for a 3 P.M. ET kickoff.

Toward the end of the game, cloud cover may start to increase as an area of low pressure approaches the region, however rain will hold off until the overnight hours.

Tuesday's matchup of Japan and the Netherlands in Vancouver should be free of any precipitation as well. Plenty of sunshine is expected, with temperatures reaching the lower 20s C (70s F)
