The NBA announced Tuesday that the league will play a season-long rain-soaked game between the Miami Heat and Milwaukee Bucks on Thursday.
The rain will be at least an inch thick, and a heavy rain forecast is possible.
The game is set to begin at 7 p.m.
ET and will be streamed live on the NBA’s official social media accounts.
The Hornets and Timberwolves, two of the two teams playing in the game, will also be in attendance.
The weather forecast for Thursday says that there could be a tornado warning in effect for the area.
Here’s what you need to know about the NBA game: The Hornets will be playing at the home of their former owner, the NBA franchise known as the Hornets.
The Bucks are owned by a group of billionaire investors led by former Los Angeles Lakers owner Jerry Buss.
The NBA is not naming any other teams in the event of rain, but the league has said there is no risk to the game.
“As fans, we are all watching to see the weather forecast and to see if it is safe to continue to attend the game,” the league said in a statement.
A heavy rain warning is in effect in the Philadelphia area for the Hornets game.
Hornets fans will have to be prepared to evacuate the venue and evacuate the game venue.
The basketball game is expected to begin in the rain and is expected for a total of about 3 1/2 hours.
The thunderstorms are expected to hit the Northeast early Thursday morning and will last into the afternoon.
“We have been watching this storm with great interest and are prepared for the possible impacts,” said David E. Peebles, the Hornets owner.
“The game will be played in the beautiful city of Charlotte and we are working closely with our partners in the City of Charlotte to minimize disruption to the Hornets and the communities in the area.”
Hornets coach Steve Clifford said he’s confident the game will go off without a hitch.
“It will be a great atmosphere for the fans,” Clifford said.
“They’ll be able to watch the game from the stands.
They can be in the arena, the arena itself, and there will be great views of the field.”
The Hornets have not played a game in the series since 2007.
“I’m really confident the fans will be prepared,” Clifford added.
The Hawks, meanwhile, have been a fixture in the Northeast and Southeast for years.
The team has played at home three times and in Charlotte three times.
The league has not named any teams in that area.
“This will be the first time in the history of the Hornets that they will play in front of the home fans,” Charlotte Hornets coach Paul Silas said.
