2014 Super Bowl weather forecast: Mostly clear, no rain or snow

Weather is a fickle thing. It's about as easy to predict as the stock market. So no surprise, Monday brings a much different viewpoint for the weather during Super Bowl XLVIII than the weekend did. Now all of a sudden "mostly clear" is in play.

The Weather Channel, with less than a week remaining until the game kicks off, has SUN showing on Super Bowl Sunday and -- unlike this past Sunday -- a very minimal chance of precipitation for the game.

Even the winds are looking kind of wimpy at 5 mph:

It's unlikely the Seahawks actually care about what the weather is, although their style of play would theoretically work better in the elements, at least against the Broncos. Peyton Manning should be jumping up and down, though. This sort of forecast favors him tremendously.

Weather Underground is featuring a similar forecast. Highs of 37 for Sunday along with a low (20 percent) chance of rain or snow? The 10 mph winds are a little different from above but that's still basically nothing.

It's gonna feel like spring in Met Life Stadium if this forecast holds. (Hint: it won't.)
