70mph? Are they still allowed to play under those conditions? Thats a tropical storm almost a category 1 hurricane wind speed. If Andy Lee punts with the wind he might punt it out of the stadium, and Phil Dawson might be able to kick a 99 yd FG. Record breaking day for the special team specialists. Cool.
40 mph is the forecast, in gusts. As for rain, the expectation is that it will be showery all day, which should make the field soggy (Wembley's pitch is rather heavy I'm afraid). Most of the heavy rain is expected after midnight though (the game starts at 5 pm local time, as we get out of Daylight Savings this weekend and the time difference becomes only 4 hours (7 from the Pacific) until you lot change over as well in a couple of weeks.
Expect to see even less passing and even more grinding with Frank. Fine by me
