Levi’s stadium was soaked with rain but fans blocked it
The weather system, known as the Bomb Hurricane, swept through the Bay Area on Sunday night and had a devastating effect on the game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Indianapolis Colts.
Levy’s stadium was soaked in rain overnight, but fans either sat in their seats and endured the rain or parked themselves in the concourse to see under the moonlight. Dozens of people were in their place wearing ponchos and hoods to watch the big game.
The Twitter game was lit up with interesting sight and sounds.
The weather system began to move through the western United States earlier in the week.
Bomb hurricanes are also known as mid-latitude hurricanes according to the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA). Mid-latitude cyclones drive most of the hurricane weather in the continental US, the agency notes.
A process called bombogenesis can occur when a mid-latitude cyclone intensifies rapidly over a period of 24 hours and releases atmospheric pressure at least 24 millibars. Typically, the range of millibar changes is about 10 to 15 in the same period.
When the mass of cold air collides with the mass of warm air, like the air on the warm ocean water. The formation of a fast-strengthening weather system is called bombogenesis, which produces bomb hurricanes.
The consequences of a rapidly evolving low pressure system include high and strong winds and snow-white conditions with heavy snowfall and heavy snow, in addition to precipitation on ice that can cause flooding. It is not uncommon for storms to occur at least once a year and for bombogenesis noister to occur frequently during the winter season.
While there were plenty of fumbles during the game, both teams combined for more than 45 points on Sunday.
