Super Bowl forecast update: Cold but not frigid, and still no major storm threat

Super Bowl Sunday Outlook Update #1 — 9 Days to Go

Yesterday, we highlighted the typical normal weather for Super Bowl Sunday and offered our first forecast.  We’ll continue to update daily in the lead up to the big game.

Right now, the best odds for precipitation (a chance of light snow) appear to come before the game gets underway, perhaps into that morning. Pre-game highs reach the mid-30s or so.

It’s cold, but not far off what you’d expect this time of year. Skies may feature some clouds, and there’s a slight chance of a snow shower during the game. We don’t expect winds to be a major problem, with relatively light speeds and wind chill values quite tolerable (20s) compared to recent days.

Note: It remains very early for a specific forecast and it is subject to large error.
