Well, hello snow at Lambeau!

On Sunday morning, ESPN’s Kimberley A. Martin tweeted a picture of Lambeau Field dusted with snow ahead of Sunday’s Buccaneers vs. Packers NFC Championship Game.

January snow in Green Bay isn’t all that uncommon, but just because there’s snow on the field now doesn’t necessarily mean it’ll be a factor in the game itself.

With that in mind, let’s take a detailed look at the Bucs vs. Packers weather forecast, including the chances we’ll see more snow in Green Bay.

Buccaneers vs. Packers Weather Forecast

The latest Green Bay forecast from the National Weather Service is calling for the snow at Lambeau Field to end by 2 p.m. ET, which is about an hour ahead of today’s Buccaneers vs. Packers kick off.

While temperatures in the mid-to-high 20s throughout the game won’t make for the most pleasant on-field conditions, Sports Insights’ hourly weather shows winds aren’t expected to be much a factor either.

As we know from our Action Labs database, NFL scoring begins to be affected negatively once winds reach double digits, and like the screenshot above details, average breezes aren’t expected to reach that key benchmark.

And from an NFL betting perspective, the market tells us all we need to know about how the Green Bay weather forecast should affect Bucs vs. Packers.

The Bucs vs. Packers over/under has increased from 52 to 53 (click here for the latest NFC Championship Game odds) so far today, suggesting that bettors are expecting plenty of scoring despite the snow currently falling.
