Although the Super Bowl LVIII will take place in Las Vegas, Nevada this year, many fans that won't be attending in person wonder how the weather will hold up in their areas. Will they be able to watch the game on patio or bundled up inside?
An expansive ridge of high atmospheric pressure promises to deliver abnormally mild temperatures across New York City over the upcoming Super Bowl weekend.
Weather for the weekend will feel more reminiscent of spring than early February winter norms, presenting both benefits and downsides.
Warm Weather for the Weekend After Rainy Week
After a week of gloomy rainfall and chilly breezes, skies partially clear just in time Friday for Super Bowl arrivals to enjoy comfortable highs near 50°F on opening day. While spotty light showers could dampen outdoor exposures on Saturday, thermometers continue climbing well above regional averages.
Peak warmth coincides Sunday with the main event itself, as partly sunny skies help push afternoon readings into the low 50s – approximately 20°F higher than typical early February norms.
The abnormal heat arrives courtesy of an atmospheric buckle driving warm fronts unusually far north up the Eastern Seaboard days before cold high pressure regains control next week.
