Pleasant Conditions In San Francisco & Baltimore With Frigid Temperatures In Kansas City & Green Bay
In addition to the game-time conditions, listed is the game, the time (ET) and network on which it airs.
• Saturday, Jan. 11
MINNESOTA at SAN FRANCISCO (4:30 p.m., NBC)
Levis Stadium is not in San Francisco, of course, which can have dramatically different weather than other places in the Bay Area, so PubClub.com is providing forecast for Santa Clara. And it’s the most pleasant weather of any of the four playoff host cities. The weather will be sunny with a mix of clouds. The temperatures will be in the low-to-mid 50s at kickoff, dropping to the low-40s into the night. Winds will be light, 5-10 mph. Note that daytime will start to turn into nighttime after about the first quarter.
TENNESSEE at BALTIMORE (8:15 p.m., CBS)
Coming out of a slushy week in which temperatures reached into the 60s, the warming trend continues into Saturday with game-time temperature of around 62 degrees. Rain, however, could begin falling, particularly in the second half. Nearly a quarter of an inch is expected to fall overnight; it’s just a matter of when it hits the city of crab cakes and beer. Winds will be from the south at 10-20 mph.
• Sunday, Jan. 12
HOUSTON at KANSAS CITY (3 p.m,. CBS)
The bad news is a winter storm with freezing rain is hitting Kansas City this weekend. The good news is that is should move out by Sunday. That doesn’t mean it won’t be cold – the tailgate temperature will be in the upper 30s , with game-time temperatures dropping into the low 30s.
SEATTLE at GREEN BAY (6:40 p.m., FOX)
Chilly, to be sure, with possible snow flurries during the game. The temperature will be somewhere around 20 degrees. Winds will be light, 5-10 mph.
