Weather Talk: Too soon to tell forecast for Super Bowl accurately

Some days, everybody’s a weather forecaster.

Lately, a lot of sports reporters have found their hidden meteorologist inside as an outdoor Super Bowl date approaches. The 48th Super Bowl is scheduled for Sunday, Feb. 2, at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, N.J. The weather along the Eastern Seaboard has been similar to ours this winter – colder than average but quite fickle.

This week, no weather forecaster could possibly have any confidence in a forecast 10 days away. However, many sports reporters are happy to pass along a forecast for East Rutherford as easily as a final score. Ten-day forecasts can be found on many websites and phone apps, and that is no doubt where many of these sports/weather reporters are getting theirs.

Be patient. Like any weather forecast, the weather prediction for the Super Bowl will begin to solidify next week, a few days before the game.
