    Showers May Dampen World Cup Championship Match

    Spotty showers will be around Rio de Janeiro on Sunday, potentially during the highly anticipated World Cup Championship Match.

    Germany and Argentina are set to face off in Rio de Janeiro at 4 p.m. local time Sunday to claim the World Cup.

    Sunday, moisture streaming in from the Atlantic will cause showers to dot the Rio de Janeiro area. However, the Championship Match will be far from a washout.

    The showers will be light and spotty in nature, only threatening to put a slight damper on the match and the following celebrations for the winning team and their fans if a shower moves through at an inopportune time.


    Otherwise, Sunday is shaping up to be partly sunny in Rio de Janeiro. A seasonable temperature of 24 C (76 F) is expected when the match starts. Some players and fans from less humid climates may also say the day is muggy.
