Lambeau Field may not be packed to the brim with fans on Sunday, but it's not large crowds that makes the Frozen Tundra so iconic. It's the weather.

After defeating the Los Angeles Rams on Saturday, the Packers will bring fans more January football at Lambeau, hosting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in the NFC Championship.

The Green Bay weather forecast for Sunday suggests that weather could have a big impact on this one. Here's a look at the forecast, as of Monday morning.

Green Bay Weather for Buccaneers-Packers on Sunday

Sunday's forecast in Green Bay isn't calling for frigid temperatures, hovering right around 30 degrees from kickoff until the end of the game, but it is calling for snow.

AccuWeather forecasts an 83% probability of precipitation, calling for 5.4 inches of snow on Sunday.

This would be nothing new for Tom Brady, who had plenty of iconic playoff moments in the snow in New England, but it's still an interesting wrinkle.

Mike Evans and Chris Godwin have both played their entire NFL careers in Tampa, and suiting up in the snow is an added wrinkle they may not be accustomed to. Tampa's vertical passing attack could be seriously hampered if the weather is bad.

The Packers, on the other hand, are no strangers to conditions like this. It's called home-field advantage for a reason.

Of course, weather in Green Bay can change very quickly, so we'll keep a close eye on the forecast right up until kickoff.

FanDuel Sportsbook's NFC Championship odds have the Packers as 3.5-point home favorites over the Bucs.
