Packers fans can expect “decent winter day, for a change” for Sunday's game against the Vikings at Lambeau Field
For a Wisconsin winter day, the forecast looks fine for Green Bay Packers fans looking to watch the team’s first game of 2023 from Lambeau Field’s stands.
Temperatures in the 30s will be a pleasant change from the Packer’s last home game, a Dec. 19 night game against the Los Angeles Rams, for which fans bundled up for temperatures in the teens. On Sunday, the usual layers, hat and gloves will be sufficient for the 3:25 p.m. game against the Minnesota Vikings.
Tasos Kallas, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Green Bay, said temperatures are expected to fall slightly during Sunday’s game, with temperatures in the mid-30s at kickoff and near freezing by the game’s end. No precipitation is expected, and the windchill is charting mid-to-upper 20s, which Kallas said is “mild” for early January.
“All things considered, it should be a relatively nice day to attend a game in January,” Kallas said.
A dusting of snow and eventually some freezing drizzle are expected Saturday night and may continue into early Sunday morning, but it should be well out of the way in time for those traveling from outside the city, Kallas said. Some fog may be seen Sunday morning, according to the National Weather Service in Green Bay's website.
“It shouldn’t be a problem for people traveling to the game, especially when it’s a late game like that,” Kallas said. “Temperatures will be above freezing in the morning, so whatever ice had fallen will have melted by the time traffic starts to roll in.”
Fans can also expect an easy drive home, too with no precipitation expected to roll in after the game, Kallas said.
