    Heat Remains a Concern for World Cup Tuesday

    By By Eric Leister, Meteorologist
    June 18, 2014, 4:21:10 AM EDT

    Three World Cup matches are scheduled for Tuesday and showers are again possible for at least one match.

    The greatest threat for impacts from rain will be the afternoon matchup between Brazil and Mexico, taking place in the northern city of Fortaleza.

    A brief downpour is possible, however it is more likely that the match will be largely dry with just a passing shower.


    On top of the rain threat, steamy conditions will prevail. Temperatures will be in the lower 80s F (27-29 C) combined with tropical dew points, making it very taxing for the athletes involved in the matches.


    Dry weather and more comfortable temperatures are expected for the other two matches, taking place in Cuiaba during the evening with the first match of the day in Belo Horizonte.
