The NFL season is getting off to a wild start in Los Angeles and, to a degree, the season opener.
With temperatures falling below zero in Los Alamos, N.M., the league office is trying to keep the temperatures down to zero before kickoff, with a forecasted 15-degree drop and wind gusts in excess of 100 mph.
The league office has been working to limit the wind and snowfall, which would cause problems with the game and other games, and has been running an automated weather station in advance of the kickoff.
The NFL has already been working with the National Weather Service to do the same.
The game is scheduled to begin at 1 p.m. local time on Sunday and is scheduled for a kickoff time of 3 p.d.
The NFL has also been running a series of social media updates to alert fans to possible weather delays.
The latest update from the NFL says the game will be postponed at the request of officials, who are expected to make a decision about a delay in the middle of the afternoon.
The delay is the latest in a series that has caused the NFL to delay some games in the past, but never before this severe.
The league had originally scheduled to play the San Diego Chargers on Saturday night in Los Vegas but was forced to cancel it after the storm swept through Los Angeles.
The Los Angeles City Council has asked the NFL and the city to reschedule the game because of the storm, which is expected to bring down trees, downed power lines and road conditions.
The weather in Los Angles, which includes the famed Golden Gate Bridge, has been expected to be very dry and windy all day.
The city’s Department of Emergency Management has also issued a travel warning.
