Temperatures during yesterday’s big game – the first cold-weather Super Bowl in an uncovered stadium – remained above normal. At kickoff, it was an (almost) toasty 49 degrees at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, NJ.
Temperatures dropped during the game, creating good conditions for a winter storm to dump heavy, wet snow across a large swath of the U.S. from the Mid-Atlantic to the New York Metro area and beyond.
Boston: Yesterday’s high temperature hit an almost balmy 55 degrees Fahrenheit, well above the 43-degree average. Today’s highs will stay right around freezing. Check out the live weather station readings from the American Meteorological Society’s headquarters (we’ll be in Atlanta this week during their annual meeting and convention, so stay tuned for updates on our blog!).
New York City: Yesterday’s high temperature in the Big Apple soared to 55 degrees Fahrenheit. Today it will stay right around the freezing mark as snow continues to fall.
Philadelphia: The City of Brotherly Love hit a high of 54 degrees – more than 10 degrees above average. Temperatures today will only reach into the low 30s.
Providence, RI: Yesterday saw mild temperatures into the mid-50s. Today it’s only in the low 30s and snow is falling.
Washington, D.C.: Our nation’s capital saw temperatures in the low 60s (yes, you read that right). Today, the District is getting rain while temperatures remain in the upper 30s.
