Surprisingly nice.

Weather shouldn’t be a major factor in the NFC Championship Game featuring the Philadelphia Eagles against the Minnesota Vikings at Lincoln Financial Field today. You’d normally expect it to be pretty cold at this time of this year but that really won’t be the case on Sunday evening.

According to the forecast from The Weather Channel, it’s expected to be around 45 degrees for the Eagles’ 6:40 PM kickoff. The wind chill will make it feel about 43 degrees. Temperatures are expected to hold steady throughout the game. There’s a slight chance of precipitation.

This weather is projected to be much nicer than last week’s playoff game at the Linc when the wind chill made it feel around 20 degrees.

One could argue the fact that it’s not going to be super cold is good news for the Vikings since they play in a dome. Then again, Eagles quarterback Nick Foles has played his best games in warmer weather rather than cold temperatures.

The conditions likely won’t have a big impact on this big game, but at least it’ll be a little less cold for the fans in the stands. All the more reason to show up and be loud!
