As the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers prepare to play in Super Bowl LVIII at Allegient Stadium in Paradise, Las Vegas, the weather should be sunny with temperatures of about 50 degrees.

It has not always been that way for Super Bowls. Let's take a look at Super Bowl weather history.

What Was the Coldest Super Bowl?

The coldest Super Bowl in history through 2023 was the game in 2018 when the Philadelphia Eagles played the New England Patriots. Temperatures in Minneapolis struggled to reach 11 degrees at game time after the city set a record low of 9 degrees shortly after midnight.

While tailgating fans may have been shivering, the cold temperatures did not affect the game because U.S. Bank Stadium is an indoor facility. The New York Patriots won the game 13 to 3.

The coldest Super Bowl in history played outdoors was Super Bowl VI, played at Tulane Stadium in New Orleans on January 16, 1972. The temperature at kickoff time of the game pitting the Green Bay Packers and the Kansas City Chiefs was 39 degrees.
