Remember those doomsday scenarios of historic snowstorms predicted to bury Super Bowl XLVIII and make the NFL rue the decision to play the biggest game of the season outdoors -- in New Jersey -- in February?
Weather Underground projects a 16 percent chance of rain at kickoff (6:30 p.m. ET). That percentage holds consistent, according to the weather website, until it bumps up to 71 percent at 10 p.m.
Weather.com corroborates the early chances for precipitation, placing the odds at 20 percent throughout the game, but a wintry mix of snow and rain is not expected until midnight.
Temperatures are expected to be between 41 to 44 degrees at kickoff and fall to only around 38 degrees as night ensues. In New Jersey -- in February -- consider that weather balmy.
Winds are expected to increase only slightly throughout the evening, moving from 4 mph to just 7 mph by game's end.
The other consideration when discussing the weather is the playing surface at MetLife Stadium.
"The condition of the field is excellent. We had it checked out yesterday," Toma said. "Everything is right on the money."
Snow showers are predicted to hit the area Monday.
To reiterate, the NFL appears to be right on the money once again.
