Nightmare scenario for NFL: Snow on Super Bowl Weekend?

AccuWeather.com reports according to AccuWeather.com Meteorologist and Chief Operations Office Evan Myers, a storm system will be approaching the Northeast on Super Bowl weekend. How much it will affect the game, however, will still need to be monitored.

football600“The timeline is for Friday to Sunday,” Myers said. “Whether or not it happens during the game or before the game, and whether or not it will come as rain or snow, is still questionable.”

A snowstorm would not be unusual for the New York and New Jersey early at that time of year, according to AccuWeather.com Expert Senior Meteorologist Bernie Rayno.

“They are taking a calculated risk having the Super Bowl [at MetLife Stadium],” Rayno said. “A risk because if this area is going to get a big storm, that’s the time of year it will happen. Calculated because they only really need one day.”

Over the past 10 years, temperatures for the date have varied from the highs in the low 50s to lows in the teens. Temperatures around 6:30 p.m., when kickoff will take place, have ranged from the lower 20s to mid-40s.

With the average high for the area on Feb. 2 at 40 degrees, and the average low is 24, a storm system could easily drop snow. On average, the area receives 2.2 inches of snow during the first week of February.
