Fans of the Battlehawks and City SC teams in St Louis are facing cold weather risks on Saturday night.
While winter is still holding on, temperatures are expected to drop to 28 degrees Fahrenheit during the match, which could increase the risk of frostbite and hypothermia.
Weather First meteorologist Tracy Henson warns that even at temperatures above 40 degrees, hypothermia can occur if the body is exposed to rain, sweat, or dampness.
Symptoms of hypothermia include confusion, shivering, difficulty speaking, sleepiness, and stiff muscles.
To prevent cold injury, it’s crucial to wear warm clothing and cover exposed skin.
City SC is urging fans to bring blankets and scarves to the match for added warmth.
