A weak system passing to the northwest of MetLife Stadium sends a cold front through on Sunday. Latest trends have it slowing down a bit, now passing in the mid-morning to early afternoon period. Overall, this is a light precipitation maker, but there’s a risk of a light wintry mix late Saturday night or early Sunday morning, transitioning to rain showers (50% chance) through the morning. With the slower passage of the front, highs in the near 40 to mid-40s range seem likely — perhaps on the high end of that range.

After confidence grew yesterday that the game would be shower free, the cold front slowed down. If the slower trend continues, scattered showers could threaten the area. Wind gusts to 15 mph early should diminish during the game.
