Super Bowl Weather: Mild And Mostly Dry

Saturday, February 01, 2014

AccuWeather.com reports after a month that featured waves of snow and arctic air across the Northeast, fans gathering at MetLife Stadium for the Super Bowl will experience none of the above.

In fact, temperatures will be mild enough that some spectators may not feel the need to don winter hats and gloves.

As pre-game festivities get underway on Sunday morning, temperatures will be in the upper 30s to lower 40s, which is the average high for early February. During the afternoon, temperatures will rise into the lower 50s.

A brief rain shower or two may move through during the afternoon prior to kickoff. Otherwise, dry conditions are expected during the game itself. Fans may want to pack the rain jacket in the event a rain shower moves over the venue.

Winds during the afternoon and evening will be 6-12 mph and RealFeel temperatures will be close to the actual air temperature.

Dry weather is expected to persist after the game into Sunday night.

Spectators leaving the area on Monday could run into some travel problems as a storm may bring snow to the I-95 corridor from southern New England to Washington, D.C.

There is still some uncertainty in the storm track. If it moves eastward across the southern mid-Atlantic, snow will likely stay south of the New York City area.

A track farther north, which some computer forecasts show, will bring snow as far north as southern New England.

Folks that are traveling on Monday should be prepared to adjust their travel schedules in case snow does impact areas across the Northeast and mid-Atlantic.
