Super Bowl Sunday Outlook Update #5 — 5 Days to Go

As we close in on the Super Bowl, the weather picture is becoming a little clearer.

It now appears more likely that a weak system will pass by well to the northwest of MetLife Stadium late Saturday into early Sunday. This means that a frontal passage should clear the area by noon at the latest on Sunday. We currently expect all rain (50% chance) with this pre-game show (perhaps quite light and scattered), or a wintry mix changing to rain and possibly ending as a few conversational snowflakes. Highs try to reach 40 or so, maybe early in the day before colder air filters back in.

6:30 p.m., Sunday, February 2, MetLife Stadium (East Rutherford, NJ)

Partly to mostly clear
We’re becoming more confident that there won’t be any precipitation, as there’s growing consensus the front will have completely cleared the area before kickoff. If the front clears slower, gusts up to around 20 mph could linger until the game starts, but diminish thereafter.
