“Slight chance” of precipitation during Super Bowl

Super Bowl Football AP

While precipitation can’t be completely ruled out for Super Bowl XLVIII in East Rutherford, New Jersey, the most recent forecast suggests it is not likely.

As of Thursday night, the National Weather Service forecasts a “slight chance” for precipitation on Sunday afternoon and evening for the New York area. By the weather service’s definition, “slight chance” equates to 20 percent.

WeatherUnderground.com, for its part, forecasts a zero percent chance of precipitation, eight mph winds and temperature of 44 degrees for 6 p.m. Eastern on Sunday night in East Rutherford, location of MetLife Stadium, which will host Sunday’s game between the Seahawks and Broncos.

The National Weather Service says a “very brief period of rain showers” is possible in the New York area on Sunday morning.

Game time is 6:30 p.m. Eastern.

    Those 8 mph winds will wreak havoc on Peyton Manning’s passes.

    I hate the fact that they will be getting tolerable weather. Ignore the weather forecast and come to South Florida anyway. I have to be honest, it is 64 degrees and raining at my house today.

    Perfect weather for a surgical thrashing of the “legion of boom.” Greatest offense IN NFL HISTORY > best D this year

    The only precipitation will be Krapperpick and Whiners fans tears as Peyton chokes and hands the Seahawks the Lombardi trophy on a silver platter!

    Regardless of whether there is precipitation or not , it was a stupid and ridiculous idea to host the Super Bowl in an outdoor stadium in the Northeast in February ; the only reason this was done is because someone’s palm received a very large dollop of grease.

    Tampa came in second for hosting this Super Bowl. Here’s the forecast:

    Sunday @ 6pm: 76 and clear.

    44 degrees and 8 mph winds? Highly unlikely. When that sun goes down expect a free fall in that temp and those cold February winds to rattle inside that stadium. Don’t worry though, Rodger will be nice and warm is his suite laughing at all the suckers freezing in the seats.

    Oooooh nooooo! Not that! It’s the SB, there shouldn’t any exposure to the elements!
