With the Super Bowl quickly approaching, the weather projection keeps getting better and better.

According to the Weather Channel on Saturday, the temperature for kickoff is expected to be in the low-to-mid 40’s.

Snow is no longer expected as originally feared, but there is a slight chance that there will be some patches of light rain. The sky does look like it will be cloudy, with winds between 5-10 mph.

There is a snowstorm expected to hit the east coast, but it shouldn’t get far enough to the north to affect the game.

Monday however, is a different story. Snow is likely, which could be problematic for those trying to return home from the big game.

Fans should feel lucky; as the last time an NFL Championship was handed out in the Tri-State Area, the temperature was a frigid 25 degrees. The year was 1962. The game was at Yankee Stadium, pitting the New York Giants against the Green Bay Packers. With an average wind speed of 25 mph, the Giants’ passing attack was nullified; and they ended up falling 16-7.

This year's Super Bowl will pit the Denver Broncos against the Seattle Seahawks. Kickoff will be at 6:30 p.m. ET.
