Wild weather causing havoc in lead up to Super Bowl


Wild weather is causing havoc in Atlanta, the home of Super Bowl 53, with over 1,500 flights cancelled this morning.

Snowfall and icy weather have led to the delays, with airlines waiving changing fees for customers affected.

Things are expected to get better as the week goes on, but with fans from around the world attempting to get to the Super Bowl, the weather is causing chaos.

Of course, the Super Bowl itself won’t be affected regardless given Mercedes Benz Stadium is indoors, but both New England and Los Angeles will spend stages training outside in the snow.

However, officials have stated they will open the roof of the stadium if the weather permits.

Snowy conditions favour the Massachusetts-based Patriots who are used to preparing in this kind of weather.

The Rams don’t see these kinds of conditions at all back home in Los Angeles and suffered a loss to the Chicago Bears in the snow earlier in the season.
