THE WEATHER REPORT
Weather conditions for key NFL, college football games this weekend
After a couple of weeks off the weather report is back this week. I know you all missed me dearly. And speaking of misses, boy did I miss out on getting something written about that Washington-Washington State game before it started. Well not to worry, I have some more snow for you this week. Lets get to that weather.
Bears @ Giants (12:00 PM Sunday): Temperatures will be comfortable, especially for this time of year, rising all the way into the mid to upper 50s. The issue here will be rain. Some potentially heavy rain will be moving through Sunday morning. It looks like the bulk of it should be out of the area by game time, however it is close enough that we could still see some rain lingering during the early portions of the game.
Cardinals @ Packers (12:00 PM Sunday): Ah December in Green Bay – and the conditions will be true to form here. Temperatures will be in the mid to low 30s, so not that cold relatively speaking. But the issue here will be snow. It looks like snow could be falling throughout the game and pick up to be moderate to heavy at times. In addition to the snow winds will be around 20 MPH gusting to 30 MPH. Probably not ideal for the dome team from the desert, not that they are any good at football anyway.
Panthers @ Buccaneers AND Colts @ Jaguars (12:00 PM Sunday): We’ll see typical Florida conditions at both of these games. Temperatures will be near 80 degrees with about a 40-50% chance of some passing rain during the game. Not looking for a deluge but it could be a bit damp at times.
Vikings @ Patriots (3:25 PM Sunday): Temperatures here will be in the mid 40s, again not so bad for the northeast in December. Similarly, to New York an area of rain will be moving through on Sunday. While the rain will linger a bit longer in the Boston area, the later start of this game will keep it from being a washout. Look for rain to be possible early on with chances declining as the game goes on.
Pac-12 Championship Game in Santa Clara, California
Utah vs. Washington (7:00 PM Friday): While California has received a nice drenching recently rain does not look to be in the cards here. The only potential issue will be winds early on which could gust up to 20 MPH. After halftime though winds should die down.
ACC Championship in Charlotte, North Carolina
Clemson vs. Pittsburgh (7:00 PM Saturday): Rain looks likely here and could possibly be quite heavy at times. Additionally, the potential exists for a few thunderstorms, so a lightning delay isn’t totally out of the question here.
