There’s some local flooding issues currently going on in Iowa City, but that should subside a little as we get toward tailgating and kickoff of Iowa’s Super Bowl. But it’s going to be chilly to start things off.

So far, Iowa State’s been extremely lucky with football weather, and it will be no different at Kinnick Stadium in Iowa City. Sometimes, this game has been punished with some rainy outings. But the weather won’t be any excuse if the teams put up another 9-6 snoozefest.
Of course, there is flooding to worry about before gameday. Currently, Iowa City is under a flood warning in the middle of the day on Wednesday and there’s a chance of rain expected Friday afternoon.
Luckily, the flooding shouldn’t have any major impact for those wanting to tailgate or are just traveling to the game. However, the weather has impacted grass parking and those that are going to public parking areas may have to use another route to get to the game, according to Iowa’s football gameday website.
"Due to wet weather this week, grass parking areas may become very limited. Fans seeking public parking are strongly encouraged to ride the Hawkeye Express train located near Coral Ridge Mall in Coralville to historic Kinnick Stadium."
It’s a similar situation Ames faced last week with the rainy weather, on top of the all the rearranged parking due to the construction of the South end zone.
