Snow is expected to cover Green Bay, impacting Seahawks-Packers game

Winter isn't coming anymore. Winter is here."Thursday Night Football" between the Raiders and Chiefs proved that much -- just ask Derek Carr, who averaged 2.85 yards per pass.

Sunday's matchup between the Seahawks and Packers will only confirm winter's arrival.

According to Weather.com, there is a 90 percent chance that snow will hit Green Bay, Wisconsin, on Sunday. In all, 3 to 5 inches are expected. The projected high temperature? 32 degrees.

Here's how the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel described the incoming storm:

The National Weather Service has issued a winter storm watch for southern Wisconsin from Saturday night until Sunday evening with a forecast of 6 to 10 inches.

Southeast winds of 10 to 20 miles per hour will cause drifting of snow, reduced visibility and hazardous travel conditions on roads, the weather service said.

From Lambeau Field in Green Bay where the Packers and Seahawks will play football in a snow globe to Candy Cane Lane in West Allis, a steady storm of powdery snow and blowing wind are forecast to impact travel until Monday morning.

Luckily, both quarterbacks -- Aaron Rodgers and Russell Wilson -- are equipped with strong enough arms to deal with the wintery conditions. So, the quality of the game shouldn't be impacted too severely, especially considering Weather.com projects the winds to be at just 5-10 miles per hour.

With that being said, the weather could, in theory, impact the Seahawks more than the Packers, because the Seahawks don't play in snow as often. In fact, Richard Sherman pointed out this week that he's never played in the snow:

He did, however, take part in that frigid playoff game in Minnesota a year ago, which should prepare him for Sunday's game.

"Anything else is an oven compared to that," Sherman said, per The Seattle Times. "Can't get any worse."

Russell Wilson is even rooting for snow!

Here's what I'm rooting for: Another great cold-game classic between the Seahawks and Packers. It's a series that's given us Matt Hasselbeck's "We want the ball and we're going to score" coin toss moment and the Packers' epic collapse in the NFC title game two seasons ago.

The only thing missing from those games? A snow storm.
