There's nothing quite like January football at Lambeau Field — even if capacity at the stadium might be limited.

After receiving a first-round bye in the NFL Playoffs as the No. 1 seed in the NFC, the Green Bay Packers will return to action when the host the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday.

Weather at the Frozen Tundra has the potential to seriously impact this game, so let's take a look at what's in the forecast.

Green Bay Weather for Rams-Packers on Saturday

Saturday's forecast in Green Bay is calling for a cold day, with the temperature reaching a high of just 27 degrees and falling to about 23 degrees by the time the game is scheduled to end.

While there are some snow showers in the forecast this week, those are on track to come on Thursday and Friday, without any major accumulation. That means it's just cold, and not any snow, that the teams will need to be worried about.

Of course, the weather in Green Bay can change quickly, so this will be a situation to monitor right up until kickoff.

As of Monday morning, the Packers have opened as 7-point favorites against the Rams according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL odds.
