Wow, is this NFL Season flying by. Here we are at the halfway point of the schedule already and the calendar has now advanced to November. Even as we approach the second half of the season, temperatures and weather conditions have yet to play a major impact in any weekend so far this season. Week Eight does not look to be any different. A quick look at the weather maps this morning shows that areas where outdoor games will be played this afternoon will experience moderate to slightly above normal temperatures and mild conditions.
A broad area of high pressure dominates the East Coast this morning while a cold front is entering the Northern Plains. A storm system moving into the Pacific Northwest will bring rain along with snow to higher elevations, but the Seattle Seahawks are out of town in Dallas. The New Orleans Saints fans will have to deal with very heavy rains and possible flash flooding issues for their tailgate plans, however the team plays indoors.
Five games will be played in domes this Sunday.
