Super Bowl forecast update: Wintry mix possible late Saturday into Sunday, departing before the game

Super Bowl Sunday Outlook Update #4 — 6 Days to Go

With less than a week to go before the Super Bowl, odds of precipitation late Saturday through early Sunday have increased. We aren’t too worried about the game itself.

A frontal zone should be moving through the region late Saturday into early Sunday. There is a decent chance (50%) of at least a little precipitation (snow, rain, or a wintry mix) within that period. It should all move out by noon on Sunday at the latest. Highs reaching the mid-30s to near 40 appear most likely, but there is a risk that’s too cold — at least briefly — if an inland storm scenario plays out as opposed to a coastal storm.

Newer data suggests the game could be entirely dry, with precipitation ending well before the start. While not a huge issue, we’ll need to watch winds. Speeds may top out around 15 mph, but winds may diminish as kickoff nears.
