COLUMBIA — If you attend the MU-Nebraska game, bring your poncho, because there's a 90 percent chance of rain, and it could be heavy at times.
“Thursday, there is a 90 percent chance of rain, and during the game it will probably rain about a half-inch to an inch,” National Weather Service Meteorologist Jim Kramper said.
Umbrellas are prohibited from Memorial Stadium, but rain ponchos and boots are allowed.
“Umbrellas are not allowed because of safety and visibility. Not many stadiums allow them,” Athletics Department spokesman Chad Moller said.
Kramper explained that a front will become stationary across Missouri and Illinois and an area of low pressure will move from Oklahoma to southwest Missouri on Thursday and Thursday night. Rain will probably be heaviest before 7 p.m., Kramper said.
“There will most likely be a total of one to three inches for Thursday,” Kramper said.
