The folks at arrowheadpride.com are telling fans that if they thought last Saturday’s game was cold, “you ain’t seen nothing yet.”
The site quotes a tweet from ESPN insider Adam Schefter saying the National Weather Service is predicting temperatures at games tome at 5:40 p.m. this Sunday, January 20.

The website reports its own historical research that pinpoints two games at Arrowhead: 2016 against the Titans and 1983 against the Broncos as the coldest when temperatures were 1 degree above zero.

If the temperature winds up being “well below zero,” as Schefter described above, it would indeed be the coldest game in the stadium’s history. However, officials at the National Weather Service in Pleasant Hill, Mo. aren’t quite ready to predict that record. A meteorologist there told KSNT News temperatures will be between 10 and zero degrees Sunday. 

“It’s going to be cold, period,” said Chris Bowman at NWS in Pleasant Hill.
