49ers-Bears weather report: Flash flood warning in effect in Chicago leading into Week 1 opener

A flash flood warning is in effect in the area of Soldier Field where the San Francisco 49ers and Chicago Bears are set to open up their season this afternoon.

So far, between one and three inches of rain have already come down and an additional inch to two inches are possible, per The Weather Channel.

The rain is expected to continue heading into kickoff and likely be a presence throughout the contest with things tapering off later on this afternoon. 

Typically, rain doesn't impact the game too much, but when it's a downpour like what is seemingly going on at Solider Field, it is a noteworthy development.

 The groundskeepers at Soldier Field recently took the tarp off the grass and, according to reporters on the scene in Chicago, there is already some significant puddling on various spots on the field. 

Of course, this could have an impact on the passing game for both clubs.
