Super Bowl forecast: Slight chance of precipitation

Super Bowl Football AP

With less than 24 hours until kickoff for Super Bowl XLVIII, the weather forecast continues to look favorable, all things considered.

According to forecaster WeatherUnderground.com, dry conditions are currently expected for 6 p.m. Eastern on Sunday in East Rutherford, New Jersey, the home of MetLife Stadium. Overcast skies, winds of six mph and a temperature of 44 degrees are also in the forecast around gametime.

Kickoff between the Seahawks and Broncos is slated for 6:30 p.m. Eastern.

As the game goes on, the probability of precipitation increases. Weather.com forecasts a 20 percent chance of precipitation from 6 p.m. through 11 p.m. WeatherUnderground, for its part, predicts a zero percent chance of precipitation at 6 p.m, a 10 percent chance at 8 p.m. and a 20 percent chance at 11 p.m.

Temperatures above freezing are expected during the game. However, snow looks likely in East Rutherford by Monday — a little too late for those hoping for a snow-covered Super Bowl.

    Thor, please smite the mortals in New York with a storm to impress Odin himself. Please lay waste to yon arrogant commissioner who hath thought that he beith above the God of Thunder! Forsooth, an icy mix of rain would serve well to remind those in Midgard of their foolishness.

    Will out of towners be able to leave the area before the storm hits Monday?

    Anybody that cries about the weather for a football game isn’t allowed to call themselves a football fan.

    Oh, so you mean perfect football weather?

    Did you people forget where these teams are from? Because it’s not the south.
