With Super Bowl LV between the Kansas City Chiefs and Tampa Bay Buccaneers being outdoors, there was always the potential for the weather to have an impact. Early forecasts, though, projected a nearly perfect night with little to stress about.

However, the latest Tampa weather forecast for Super Bowl Sunday has taken a turn for the worse.

Weather.com is now predicting rain and likely thunderstorms in the morning, as well as possible scattered storms in the afternoon, on Sunday, Feb. 7. The chance of rain during the day stands at 70%, meaning at least some showers are incredibly likely.

However, the night forecast is predicting an overcast sky with light showers. The chance of rain drops to 40% by nighttime.

With the Super Bowl kicking off at 6:30 p.m. EST, hopefully the morning storms will be cleared out by then. But, it does seem like rain could be in play by the game starts, which would have a major impact on two teams with prolific offenses.

These teams led by Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes are projected to rack up serious yardage on Sunday, and with an over/under of 56.5 points, they're expected to light up the scoreboard. The Tampa weather on Sunday will be something to watch for the rest of the week.
