Three more matches are set for Wednesday ranging from coastal Rio de Janeiro to Manaus in the Amazon.
The biggest weather concern of the day will be the match between Cameroon and Croatia, set to take place in Manaus during the evening. There will be a threat for showers, potentially even a heavy downpour during the match.
Another concern will be the combination of warmth and humidity that will make it feel quite sweltering at times for both participants and fans, despite the fact that the game is being played in the evening.
The other two matches, set to take place in Rio de Janeiro and Porto Alegre, will feature dry weather with partial sunshine.
The match in Rio de Janeiro between Spain and Chile will also force competitors to deal with a sweltering combination of heat and humidity. While unlikely to result in any heat breaks, the option remains available at referee discretion.
The match between Australia and Netherlands, taking place in Porto Alegre, will occur with seasonable temperatures.
The threat for potentially damaging thunderstorms will shift eastward across Europe through midweek.
Residents of the Philippines are being put on alert for potential impacts from Typhoon Noul, which will be a powerful typhoon when it approaches the Philippines this weekend.
While a few showers will pass east of the Bay Area, seasonable weather and sunshine will hold in place through the weekend.
Following a dip in temperature during the middle of the week, summerlike warmth will rebound across much of the Northeast by this weekend.
Daily episodes of severe thunderstorms and flooding downpours will impact the Plains this week, possibly lingering into the weekend.
Wind, seas and surf will build in advance of what could eventually become the first tropical system of 2015 along the southeastern Atlantic coast of the United States late this week.
