According to Weather.com, the rains have subsided a bit but it could be a little showery when things get going between the United States and Ghana on Monday evening at 6 p.m. EDT.

Unfortunately for the U.S. squad, the rain will only persist heading into Monday night’s game at 6 p.m. EDT against Ghana, according to weather.com meteorologist Nick Wiltgen.

“We are looking at off and on showers today and tomorrow, including at kickoff time,” said Wiltgen. “Along with the rain, the two teams will see high temperatures from 81 to 84 degrees, and lows near 72.”

U.S. Coach Jurgen Klinsmann, for one, wasn’t all that concerned about the conditions in comments recorded by The Post’s Steven Goff, who’s on the scene in Natal.

“If it’s raining, if it’s snowing, if it’s thunder and lightning, whatever, this is about football,” he said. “We’re not worried about that stuff at all. No matter what the circumstances are, we are going to embrace them and make them work.”
