It's raining in San Pedro Sula. Pretty hard in fact. That doesn't mean its not still 90-degrees outside, though. Showers are forecast through to the kickoff and throughout the match as well, meaning it will be a humid, wet and steamy night at Estadio Olimpico. It's hard to believe the pace of the game could be any faster than previously anticipated, but the slick field might make it so. The pitch looked in good condition yesterday during the USA's 45-minute training and it will probably be able to absorb some rain, but we'll see if the precipitation persists over the next few hours and how the field holds up by kickoff.
