Super Bowl week could start with another snowstorm

Winter Weather Super Bowl Football AP

In a season that has had plenty of games affected by weather, it’s fitting that the entirety of Super Bowl week could be marred by Mother Nature.  Already we know it’s going to be very cold, a circumstance that hardly will be regarded as a surprise in, you know, late January.

Specific forecasts for Super Sunday have yet to emerge, but at least one company that makes its money predicting the weather thinks that another snowstorm could be headed to the New York/New Jersey area on Monday, January 27.

Via Alex Sosnowski of Accuweather.com, a train of Alberta Clipper storms that started a couple of weeks ago will continue into next week.  Currently, Accuweather.com targets Monday for the arrival of the next system in the New York area.

And there there’s this, at the bottom of the article:  “Yet another clipper storm may take a similar path a day or two prior to the big game at East Rutherford, N.J.”

In contrast, the long-term forecasts at Weather.com and WeatherUnderground.com aren’t predicting snow for the area on Monday.  Weather.com currently projects a high temperature of 34 for Friday, January 31 and Saturday, February 1.

It would take a blizzard of significant, life-threatening proportions to move the game from Sunday, February 2.  As we saw a few weeks back at Lambeau Field, bitter cold and dangerously low wind chills won’t result in a postponement.

Regardless, the NFL wins because any discussion about Super Bowl weather continues to be discussion about the Super Bowl, which results in more attention and interest in a game that already will set the all-time record for TV viewership.

As it seems to do every year.

    Goodell plans to sit outside. With all the commercial breaks and ridiculous half time going ons, I would love to see him and the rest who allowed this game in NY to endure all the elements for a good 5 hours.

    They’re talking a possible mega storm for NYC.

    This could get interesting, REALLY interesting.

    “Marred by Mother Nature”? What planet are you from? Sounds like Football Weather to me!

    Hate both teams. Too bad it can’t end in a tie. Worst Superbowl ever.

    The NFL isn’t going to like their little darling MegaHead getting cold…might have to move it to spring so this rigged year comes to fruition.

    If the SB gets moved to another day, you’ll hear the pitter patter of America’s best lawyers heading to the stadium to find clients to file lawsuits for. It’ll make the Dallas SB fiasco look tame.

    With the 2 week break in between, they should play the Super Bowl on Saturday. That way, National Hangover Day can be Sunday.
