INDIANAPOLIS (AP) – Organizers of the 2012 Super Bowl in Indianapolis aren’t wasting any time figuring out what kinds of weather they might have to deal with.

Members of the Indianapolis Super Bowl Host Committee said Friday they have identified eight kinds of weather conditions that may show up in February — rain, sleet, ice, snow, hail, wind, fog and even tornadoes. Officials say charting weather patterns helps the committee as they plan for the big event.

Last month’s Super Bowl in Arlington included bitter cold, ice and snow. Falling ice at Cowboys Stadium even injured several people.

The committee declined comment on the NFL labor negotiations.
