The Colts will be playing in Los Angeles on Sunday. How is the weather looking for the first game of the year?
Weather is always a factor in football. The Colts don’t have to deal with it as much as most teams because they play on turf in a stadium that can be indoors. But they won’t have to deal with bad elements in week one when they take on the Chargers in L.A.
The forecast for Sunday in the L.A. area is sunny with the temperature right around 80 degrees. Pretty perfect weather for the first game of the year. With it being 80 degrees, both teams will need to make sure that they are properly hydrated so they don’t cramp up.
It’s good for the Colts that the weather isn’t a factor, because they have too many other things to worry about instead. The biggest thing they have to worry about is breaking out a new quarterback. It’s good that Jacoby Brissett can throw a normal, non-wet ball.
This might be the best weather the Colts see all year. L.A. is notorious for its sunny weather. I’m sure they wished they could have made the trip to L.A. later in the schedule when the weather starts to turn, but they have to do it week one instead.
If anything changes in the forecast, we will let you know about it. But until then, expect perfect weather for the start of the season. Hopefully it will be sunny for the Colts all day long and they get a win.
