We are now officially less than 10 days out from Super Bowl XLVIII in New Jersey. That doesn't just mean it's almost time to head up to the Big Apple area. It also means we are within the "10-Day Forecast" range.
And lest you think weather isn't a big deal for this game, well it is. I walked outside in North Carolina on Friday and almost lost a few fingers because it was 10 degrees and I was gloveless. Trying to tackle someone in the snow or throw a football into 20 mph winds ain't easy.
With that in mind, Weather.com is calling for a decently mild forecast.
Sunset is scheduled for 5:15 p.m. so bank on the 25-degree portion of things. What's interesting is there's no snow currently slated at night for the 10-day forecast.
The chance of precipitation is just 20 percent, which would be big for the NFL.
All things considered, this is a pretty Broncos- and Peyton Manning-friendly forecast. Cold weather is a nightmare but it's just going to be cold in the New York area on Feb. 2. Expecting anything different is delusional.
But mid-20s with a low chance of rain or snow and only 8 ,ph winds? That's a calm freaking day compared to what could happen.
We'll keep you updated throughout the week ... whether you like it or not.
