Tampa Bay Weather's Potential Impact on Super Bowl 55
By now you've probably heard that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are making history as the first team in NFL history to play in a Super Bowl on their home field. They'll be hosting the Kansas City Chiefs at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa, FL.
There's no roof on Raymond James Stadium, so while cold January temperatures aren't a concern in Florida, the Super Bowl weather forecast could impact the game.
Super Bowl 55 Weather
We're still almost two weeks out from the game, but AccuWeather has a promising early Super Bowl forecast.
On Sunday, Feb. 7, they're calling for 74-degree temperatures during the day, going down to 56 overnight. Skies will be cloudy, but there's no rain in the forecast either, with 0 inches of precipitation called for. The wind could be the biggest factor, but with gusts up to 18 MPH, that's not likely to make an impact either.
Tom Brady and Patrick Mahomes should have clear weather that will allow them to show why the Chiefs and Buccaneers' offenses have been two of the best in the NFL all season.
Early Super Bowl 55 betting odds from FanDuel Sportsbook give this game a big 56.5-point over/under, suggesting a potential shootout in Tampa.
