Super Bowl XLVIII will be the first Super Bowl to be played outdoors in a cold weather environment. The game will take place at MetLife Stadium - the home stadium of the New York Giants and New York Jets - in East Rutherford New Jersey.
Since there's some controversy about whether or not a Super Bowl should be held outside in a cold weather environment, the forecast for this game will be closely watched. You could even say, among all the players in Super Bowl XLVIII - Peyton Manning, Richard Sherman, Wes Welker - the weather is the biggest wild card of the bunch!
We are currently 13 days away from kickoff of Super Bowl XLVIII, so let's take a early look at the forecast for the game...
Accuweather is forecasting a high of 35 degrees with a 35% chance of precipitation during the day. The weather forecast for that night looks to be precipitation-free, but windy and cold. They're predicting a low of 19 degrees with gusts near 20 mph. That will give a real-feel of a brisk 11 degrees.
The popular Farmers Almanac predicted a winter storm to hit the east coast that weekend.
"It really looks like the Super Bowl may be the Storm Bowl," said Sandi Duncan, managing editor of the Almanac.
