The official start of Winter is still a week away, but many portions of the country have been hit hard with exceptionally cold temperatures and record early season snowfall. Several games last week were impacted with heavy snowfall, none perhaps more than the Detroit Lions and Philadelphia Eagles contest. There will be some snow around the NFL this Sunday, but nothing along the lines of last week’s intensity.
A quick look at the weather map this morning reveals a vigorous cold front moving off the eastern seaboard. An associated low pressure system is located over New England. Snow can be expected throughout the Great Lakes region with heavy lake effect snows in the usual regions of Western New York. Snow can be expected through the Dakotas, south to Iowa. Portions of Pennsylvania, West Virginia and the Smokey Mountains can expect to see some of the white stuff this afternoon as well.
The cold front moving off the East Coast is also moving through Florida bringing some areas of rain and windy conditions will be in place behind the passage of the front.
California, Nevada, Texas and the Four Corners area are experiencing mild weather. Five games are played indoors this afternoon.
Cleveland- 15/28, snow likely
Tennessee- 29/56, cloudy
Miami- 72/82, 40% chance of rain
New York Giants- 21/36, rain
Jacksonville- 64/75, rain likely
Tampa Bay- 69/80, 40% chance of rain
Carolina- 40/67, cloudy
Oakland- 37/57, sunny
Pittsburgh- 12/30, cloudy, chance of snow
