Super Bowl forecast update: Temps near normal, precip risk mainly before game

Super Bowl Sunday Outlook Update #2 — 8 Days to Go

With just over a week left before the Super Bowl, we’re still in a window where a lot is educated guess work. The trend so far is toward what’s typical for the date.

It looks like the main threat for widespread precipitation comes through the day/night before the Super Bowl, but that may run into morning of.  If this materializes, there are about equal chances that whatever falls before the game is rain or snow. It does not look like a huge storm. Pre-game highs reach the mid-30s to near 40.

Normal kickoff temp is right around 34, and that’s the general expectation this year. Dry conditions remain favored, but a rain or snow shower can’t be ruled out, and the steering flow is fast so minor changes may shift timing still. Wind currently appears to be a minimal factor.

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