Weather might not be too bad for Monday Night Football, after all

While weather forecasts over the weekend called for a cold and potentially snowy Monday night, the National Weather Service now expects it to be  dry and not quite as chilly as first thought when the Seahawks kick off against the New Orleans Saints at CenturyLink Field tonight.

A frigid front is taking its time arriving from Canada,  leaving midday temperatures at a higher-than-expected 45 degrees in Seattle and causing the National Weather Service to project temperatures in the upper 30s when the game starts at 5:40 p.m. That’s a far cry from the earlier prediction of temperatures in the upper 20s to lower 30s. Still, 39 degrees is no cakewalk.

A meteorologist cautioned there is a 30 percent chance of precipitation before 10 tonight., but said we  ”probably won’t get anything.”
