    Early odds show precipatation at 9-1, with an over/under of 36 degrees. This could change as we get closer to game time and the bets start coming in.

    Typical weather for early February in the northeast. Should be fine for the Super Bowl (always expected to be the coldest ever).

    This shows a city like New York should have no trouble hosting the Super Bowl, especially given NYC and the surrounding area is used to dealing with winter weather. The NFL I’m sure is happy with being in the New York metro area this year given a lot of the “warm weather” cities they would normally consider (most notably New Orleans) were dealing with an extremely unusual round of winter weather (and this is all during what has actually been the coldest winter since 1977, which was the coldest winter on record in the New York area).

    I hope their weathermen are better than ours upstate. They can’t get tomorrow right most of the time.
