The start of the new year brings remarkable weather forecasts across the country for Week 17 in the NFL.
After many states saw weather temperatures dip into the teens or below last week during Christmas Eve and Christmas Day, it feels like a heat wave has passed through, with no games set to kick off at temperatures below freezing.
The coldest forecast currently on the board takes place in Green Bay ahead of the Packers' tilt with the Minnesota Vikings in the late afternoon. There won't be any "frozen tundra of Lambeau Field" references, however, as temperatures at kickoff will be 37 degrees and sunny, with the wind less than 10 mph.
Monday Night Football's matchup of the week between the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals could feature the most impactful forecast for Week 17. Precipitation levels are in the 50-60% range, picking up as the game moves along, but no real concern over wind with forecasts in the 6-8 mph range.
