The NFL championship game between the Denver Broncos and Seattle Seahawks will be the first played outdoors in a cold weather city. The potential for cold, wind and snow has the league, fans and teams closely watching what Mother Nature has in store for the game.

With the game five days out the forecast can be hit or miss at this point as much can change in the time between now and the kickoff at 6:30 p.m. EST on Sunday. However forecasts from a variety of sources are trending toward a mostly seasonal day in East Rutherford, New Jersey.
