    No 'Snow Bowls' for Sunday's NFL Championship Games

    By By Anthony Sagliani, Meteorologist

    As a large and persistent dome of high pressure expands across the West this weekend, a dry day will greet both fans and players attending Sunday's games.

    Fog was greeting those heading into the city of Seattle early Sunday morning. These low clouds were only causing minor travel delays in the area.

    Temperatures in Seattle will settle in the mid 40s at the 6:30 p.m. kickoff, while rising into the lower 60s in Denver for the 3:00 p.m. start.

    Winds will blow from the west at 8 to 16 mph as the game is being played in Denver. Lighter winds are in store for Seattle.

    Of course, this is in stark contrast to last weekend's games, when bouts of heavy rain and strong, gusty winds blasted Seattle and Foxborough.

    Despite the nice weather at the start of the games, temperatures will still drop into the 30s and lower 40s toward the end of the games.
