Super Bowl 2014 weather forecast looks good for Broncos vs. Seahawks game

John Moore

The Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks will play come rain, shine, or biting cold, but the NFL got good news with today's (Sun., Feb. 2, 2014) weather forecast.

Although there was initially widespread fear that the weather could greatly affect Super Bowl 48: Denver Broncos vs. Seattle Seahawks tonight (Sun., Feb. 2, 2014) at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, the skies are looking fine in the northeast.

Just a few days ago, the forecast called for temperatures in the upper 30's with a system moving in before the game that could cause rain or snow but no precipitation during it. That no longer appears to be the case, as the current forecast calls for cloudy skies with a slight chance of rain.

Temperatures should hover around the low 40's for the duration of the game, which kicks off at 6:30 p.m. ET.

Our friends at SB Nation put together this handy-dandy graphic to help illustrate the point:

There is a narrative that exists that says Broncos QB Peyton Manning struggles in colder weather games, but it's questionable at best and downright irresponsible at worst. Still, it's not going to be balmy and, well, that's the narrative, silly as it may be.

Add in the Seahawks vaunted "Legion of Boom" secondary and it's a compelling angle that will undoubtedly be exploited by talking heads everywhere.

All clear for kickoff, folks!
