Winter Storm Jupiter is expected to inflict a damaging ice storm on parts of the Plains this weekend. Some of this icy mess is likely to affect the site of Sunday’s AFC divisional playoff game between the host Kansas City Chiefs and Pittsburgh Steelers at Arrowhead Stadium.
According to the Kansas City Star, the Chiefs have started pretreating parking lots and roads leading to the gates.
“We have a full plan in place that will keep the facility and the grounds around the facility as safe as possible,” Chiefs President Mark Donovan told the Kansas City Star.
This won’t be an “Ice Bowl II,” however. The field at Arrowhead Stadium is heated, so there’s no concern about patches of ice on the grass itself. However, it’s safe to assume the field will be wet during the game.
Football fans planning to attend the NFL divisional round matchup between the Kansas City Chiefs and Pittsburgh Steelers in Kansas City on Sunday should prepare for icy travel in the hours leading up to the game.
