The Green Bay Packers will take on the San Francisco 49ers in the NFC Championship Game this Sunday. While weather is almost always a factor in the NFL Playoffs, it doesn't look like it'll be too impactful here.

As of early Sunday afternoon, the Santa Clara forecast is calling for temperatures in the mid-50's around kickoff, with things not expected to fall below 50 Fahrenheit until after the game's conclusion. Precipitation chances are also incredibly low, in the single-digits throughout the game.

Winds will also only get up to about six miles per hour, which should mean it'll be business as usual for the special teams units.

With weather unlikely to play too much of a factor here, we should get to see two of the NFL's best passing attacks square off. Both teams were top-12 passing offenses by DVOA in the regular season, and Aaron Rodgers and Jimmy Garoppolo were both top 12 in terms of passer rating.

Unless there's a massive shift in the next few days, the weather shouldn't have too much of an impact on this one.
