BROWNSVILLE (NEWS CENTER 23) — The big day is almost here, with friends and family members coming from all over the city to unite for this one special moment, having the perfect decorations, perfect food, and most of all the perfect TV.
Yes that's right I am talking about Superbowl Sunday!
And of course, the quesiton on everyone's mind besides, "who's going to win," is "Will I be able to grill outside?"
Here in the Valley, the answer is a little complicated.
The highs will be in the 80's which means great weather for grilling, but the bad news is, those winds might be a bit of a problem.
We are expecting to see a windy day tomorrow with winds coming from the Sout from 10-35 mph.
And if the winds aren't enough to discourage you from grilling outside, the 20 percent chance of rain might.
With clouds sweeping back into the region, there is a slight chance to see a few sprinkles by the afternoon.
And if the wind and rain won't discourage you, then you are a true Superbowl fanatic! And that is absolutely fantastic!
But for the game in the New York-New Jersey area, it's a bit of a different story.
Good news, though, is the weather won't be below freezing like it was predicted last week.
Feb. 2 is shaping up to be one of the mildest days in East Rutherford, N.J. in quite some time.
According to Weather.com, the high temperature of the day will be a downright balmy 50 degrees Fahrenheit, which for people living in Denver and Seattle, 40-50° isn't a big deal.
In fact, Super Bowl XLVIII won't even surpass Super Bowl VI as the coldest ever, according to Raphael Miranda of WNBC in New York.
Now to the bad news.
There is a chance the area will get hit by drizzle.
Although the news isn't so bad, fans attending the game should still go prepared.
Snow isn't expected to hit until after midnight, and drizzle is expected in the evening, so there is a huge possibility there may be not any percipitation to worry about at the game!
All in all, Mother Nature has cut us some slack and will let us enjoy this one big and special moment we await every year.
