Light snow, temperatures in the high 20s to low 30s and moderate
winds are predicted for the Ravens-Steelers game at Heinz
Forecasters said the snow should not accumulate more than an
inch, but could start falling before the 4:30 p.m. EST kickoff on
Winds in the 12-15 mph are expected – perhaps enough to
influence field-goal attempts at a stadium that can be tricky for
kickers even during ideal weather.
The stadium has a new grass field that was installed at the
NHL’s expense following the Capitals-Penguins Winter Classic on
Jan. 1. This is the third surface at Heinz Field this season, as
the sod also was replaced after four high school football playoff
games were played there Thanksgiving weekend. The Steelers played
three games on that field.
