Kickoff Forecast

Our team may not have made it (don't even get me started on that one), but at least the eye's of the world will be upon Cowboy's Stadium in Arlington this evening for Superbowl XLV...

I've seen some pretty interesting forecasts (weather-related, that is) getting thrown around for the past few days, but all in all, I'd say pretty uneventful weather is on tap (especially considering the fact that the stadium is enclosed entirely) for this evening.

Outside the stadium, temperatures will be falling behind a cold front.  Readings at kick-off will be in the lower 40s.  By the time fans come pouring back outside to head home, the mercury will have fallen into the low to mid 30s.  Gusty NW winds of 15-25 mph will produce wind chills in the upper teens to lower 20s by mid to late evening.

The image below shows the Ft. Worth area radar, taken a few moments ago:

Light precipitation will spread into the Metroplex region during the evening.  Precipitation will initially start as light rain, but may mix with light snow or sleet at times by mid to late evening.  Some light snow accumulation will be possible on grassy surfaces, but major travel problems do not appear likely...
