Light snow predicted for Ravens-Steelers

Light snow, temperatures in the high 20s to low 30s and moderate

winds are predicted for the Ravens-Steelers game at Heinz

Field.

Forecasters said the snow should not accumulate more than an

inch, but could start falling before the 4:30 p.m. EST kickoff on

Saturday.

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.
