Wintry Conditions NOT Expected for Super Bowl

Super Bowl

SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WGGB) – There’s been a lot of concern about how the weather will affect the first Super Bowl, in a cold weather climate.

Well, it looks as though the NFL is going to luck out. Cold temperatures and snow are not in the forecast for Sunday.

In fact, Super Bowl XLVIII will likely not even go down as the coldest Super Bowl on record.

Super Bowl VI at Tulane Stadium in New Orleans the temperatures was 39 degrees. Temperatures fell into the 20’s during the game. In that game, the Dallas Cowboys beat the Miami Dolphins.

Sunday will feature a few showers during the day in the New York City area and it will actually be down right balmy. Temperatures will reach into the low to mid 50’s!  

The rain should end before the game with temperatures falling into the 40’s by kick-off, but will likely stay in the 40’s for most of the game. 

It will be rather breezy, which may effect the kicking game a bit.

So will conditions be perfect? No, but nothing unusual!

Have a good weekend
