Sunday night’s game between the San Francisco 49ers and the visiting Indianapolis Colts might be worth tuning for, no matter what NFL team you are a fan of.
Unless, of course, you prefer your football to be played sterilized, in a dome, without the influence of weather conditions.
A massive storm system is headed into Northern California over the next few hours, and is expected to bring flooding and high winds into the area from Sunday into Monday:

The National Weather Service for the Bay area is predicting that the amount of rain the area receives Sunday will push the region into the second-wettest month of October on record:
San Francisco 0.74" rain so far 8 pm-12am. Monthly total at midnight 2.63", 18th wettest Oct on record and climbing, likely reaching top ten wettest Oct by daybreak. SF wettest October 7.28" in 1889, 2nd is 5.51" 1962. Oct total could challenge 2nd place by Sunday evening. #CAwx— NWS Bay Area (@NWSBayArea) October 24, 2021
The official forecast is predicting at least three inches of rain for the region Sunday into Monday, with localized rain amounts of five or more inches, including in the San Francisco area:
Not ideal conditions if you are an NFL offense.
But it might make for great television.
