The NFC Championship Game opens up this weekend’s NFL action. The conference’s top-seeded Philadelphia Eagles will host the San Francisco 49ers, with kickoff set for 3 p.m. ET on Sunday.

The home team is favored by 2.5 points in this one. As for the point total, it’s looking like it could be a high-scoring affair with an over/under of 46 points. The weather shouldn’t be a hindrance, with forecast highs on the day in the 50s.

Helpful weather resources include National Weather Service and Dark Sky, among others.

Weather for 49ers vs. Eagles in NFC Championship Game


The weather forecast is calling for a high of 53 degrees on Sunday in Philadelphia. There’s a slight chance of showers in the afternoon, 20 percent, with any precipitation unlikely to fall until after 1 p.m., if at all. Winds are going to be blowing 5-15 mph out of the south.

Fantasy/betting implications

The weather isn’t likely to be much of a factor in this one. In fact, you could almost call it nearly perfect football weather, except it’s the dead of winter instead of mid-fall. If the forecast changes and the chance for rain increases, particularly if it’s heavy rain, that could dampen the scoring, pun intended.
