It might not be Green Bay cold, but it’s going to be frigid enough in Cincinnati, with the chance of a heavy snowstorm which could lend a layer of drama to tomorrow’s Bengals-Chargers game.

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm warning for Sunday, and predicts between 4 inches and 8 inches of snow in the Cincinnati area, according to Adam Kiefaber of the Cincinnati Enquirer.

Of course, it could be worse. It could be turkeys falling from the sky.

Sunday’s predicted high is 36 degrees, but temperatures are expected to fall below freezing around 3 p.m. (i.e. the third quarter), when the heaviest snowfall is expected to begin.

That could make for a some stunning visuals in the second half, but a real danger after the game, as a twisted-arm sell-out crowd tries to make its way out of downtown during a blizzard, and the Chargers try to fly back to California.
