Although no heavy rainfall is expected for any of the three scheduled World Cup Matches on Thursday, showers can still dampen the field at times.
The greatest threat for rainfall on Thursday will be during the Uruguay and England match in Sao Paulo. Cloudy skies and cool air are also on tap for this match, a stark contrast for both teams that played their first matches in muggy northern Brazil locations.
Showers could also dampen the match between Greece and Japan, set to take place during the evening in Natal. A soaking rain fell over the area Wednesday night but rainfall will become showery during the day Thursday.
Heavy rain produced flooding late last week in the Natal area; however, with lighter rainfall on tap for Thursday, no flooding is expected.
