AUSTIN (KXAN) — After one of the hottest Super Bowl’s on record in Los Angeles last year, football fans may wonder if this year’s big game – in the desert state of Arizona – will be a repeat.
Super Bowl LVII forecast
For those dedicated Eagles and Chiefs fans heading to Glendale, Arizona for Sunday’s game, good news – no need for the heavy jacket or rain gear. In fact, this weekend’s weather will be hard to beat with near-perfect conditions around game time.
After starting the morning in the mid-40s, temperatures will warm well into the upper 60s by the afternoon under a mostly sunny sky. Winds will be out of the west/southwest at about 10-15 mph with relative humidity values between 20%-30%.
It’s not likely that this year’s big game will make it into the record books. Below are a few of the weather extremes fans have experienced in year’s past.
