The Big GameFebruary 3rd, 2012 at 3:45 pm by Bill Steffen under Bill's Blog, Sports, Weather
It’s time for the Big Game, which you can see on WOOD, TV-8. The game starts around 6:30 PM, but all afternoon we’ll have coverage. Indianapolis will get some rain tonight and Saturday, but it should be partly sunny and pleasant there on Sunday with temperatures in the low-mid 40s. Last year if you remember, the Dallas area got 2-6″ of snow on the Friday before the game and they endured some of the coldest temperatures in 20 years. Arlington with an average high temperature of 57 saw highs of 40, 20, 22 and 30 for the Tuesday to Friday leading up to the game. It warmed to the low-mid 50s on Super Bowl Sunday, but they had scattered rain showers. I think the game may come down to whether the Giants (with a decent pass rush) can rattle/pressure Brady. The name “Super Bowl” came from a super ball (remember those little balls that bounced so high that you used to get out of the “Fun Machine” at Mr. Fables?) that Lamar Hunt’s 8-year old daughter was playing with. Here’s some Super Bowl Trivia. Here’s the dates, teams and weather for past Super Bowls. Enjoy the game, and watch my latest forecast after the game on 24-Hour News 8.
