Severe weather threat grows for Alabama/Missouri

In 24 hours, the Alabama Crimson Tide will face the Missouri Tigers in Columbia, Missouri. The Tigers will look to capture their first ever SEC victory, while the Crimson Tide will look to improve to 6-0, and keep their SEC and national title hopes alive.

That is the football aspect; however, the real story leading up to this game is the weather.

As has been warned for several days, a line of severe storms is expected to arrive in the city of Columbia during the afternoon hours. The threat includes rain, high winds, frequent lightning, with the possibility of hail and even tornadoes.

The game, which is scheduled to begin at 2:30 central time, will most certainly be played under substandard conditions, but the real issue is the potential of multiple delays, and the threat to public safety.
