KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Multiple metro high schools have rescheduled their Friday night football games, moving them to Thursday night, due to the chance of thunderstorms.
A cold front that will pack a punch will move into the area Friday afternoon. That front should trigger some storms and rain in the metro and southward after lunch and potentially linger into the early evening.
So far, FOX4 has learned of the following schools that have moved their games:
Ruskin vs. Raytown
IMPORTANT NOTICE: The Ruskin vs. Raytown football game has been moved from Friday to Thursday night. This is to avoid the predicted storms on Friday. Please help spread the word! @ruskinprincipal @RuskinFootball @ruskinnews @HMC1MeYouUs pic.twitter.com/WCj6ZY1uFy
