We are two days away from the Tampa Bay Buccaneers facing the Green Bay Packers in the NFC Championship Game for a chance at making the Super Bowl. Besides the differnt positional matchups that will shape this game, the unforgiving late-January weather of Green Bay is also sure to have an impact.

Buccaneers head coach Bruce Arians has revealed what he thinks will be the biggest factor in the championship game.

Arians is more focused on the wind forecast than the projected slightly-below-freezing temperatures at Lambeau.

Perhaps good news for Arians is that the National Weather Service is only predicting winds of 5-7 mph on Sunday. However, there's a 70% chance of precipitation, with snow in the forecast for Saturday night and in the early part of Sunday, and possibly part of the afternoon.

Cold shouldn't be too much of an issue, at least in Arians' view, as the projected high is at 30 degrees. The weather in Green Bay will seem shocking compared to Tampa, which is projected for a high of 80 degrees on Sunday, but the conditions could be much worse.

Even despite the weather, the over/under for this game is set at 52 points, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL betting odds.
