Earlier in the week, the Green Bay weather forecast promised to have an impact on Sunday's Packers-Buccaneers NFC Championship matchup.

As of Sunday morning, the forecast still seems like it will affect this game, though it may not be too extreme.

Green Bay Weather for Sunday Packers-Bucs NFC Championship

It's snowing in Green Bay as of 11 a.m. CST on Sunday, but the snow is expected to slow down as kickoff approaches. The 2:05 p.m. CST (3:05 EST) kickoff will be met with just snow flurries and a 44% probability of precipitation. These snow flurries are forecasted to end within about an hour of kickoff.

Things won't be overly cold at the Frozen Tundra either, with 30-degree temperatures at kickoff, which only fall to about 28 degrees by the end of the game.

The Bucs may not be a cold-weather team, but Tom Brady is certainly no stranger to the snow, so the Packers' home-field advantage may not be impacted much by a relatively mild forecast by Green Bay's standards.

Weather advantage or not, NFC Championship odds on FanDuel Sportsbook have the Packers as 3-point favorites.
