Could the weather break just right for Super Bowl XLVIII?
Via WeatherUnderground.com, the updated forecast for Sunday evening in East Rutherford, New Jersey calls for a 10 percent chance of precipitation around game time at MetLife Stadium. However, a fall-like temperature of 44 degrees is expected, as are winds of eight mph.
The Super Bowl, which pits the AFC-champion Broncos against the NFC-champion Seahawks, will kick off at 6:30 p.m. Eastern on Sunday night.
According to Weather Underground and the National Weather Service, the odds of precipitation will increase throughout Sunday night in the East Rutherford / New York area, and snow is possible Monday morning.
In short, the weather picture for Super Bowl XLVIII could be quite a bit different if the game were played at 6:30 a.m. Monday morning as opposed to 6:30 p.m. Sunday night.
As always with weather, this is all subject to change. And we’ll keep an eye on it.
