UPDATE: The lighting has passed and fans are now permitted to go back into the stadium. The weather forecast calls for more storms until 9 pm but it looks like the worst of it has passed.

ORIGINAL: There is a lot of concern right now about the weather affecting tonight and tomorrow night’s WrestleMania. Fans were just told to seek shelter because of an incoming severe thunderstorm moving into the area. Heavy wind, rain and lightning is expected to move into the area shortly.
The weather forecast for tonight in Tampa calls for heavy thunderstorms at 6 pm. Thunderstorms are in the forecast through 9 pm eastern so WWE may have to delay the show.
We will post updates when we hear more on the status of the show.
