  • Sunday's NFL Week 16 slate is plagued by strong winds, including six matchups expecting breezes of at least 10 mph.
  • Bears vs. Seahawks will see even more impactful weather, with snow and very windy conditions expected in Seattle.
  • Below we break down the latest NFL Week 16 weather forecasts, including a potential snow game for Bears vs. Seahawks in Seattle.

Typically, there are one or two NFL games with interesting weather forecasts to note in a given week, so I write individual posts that focus on those matchups.

However, when it comes to Sunday’s NFL Week 16 slate, there are so many games expecting windy weather that I decided to roll them up into one article for readers, as well as my own sanity that is already wearing quite thin as a father of two on Christmas weekend.

So far this season, 61% of NFL games played in double-digit breezes have gone under the closing total, a win rate that’s also been steady (55%) since 2003.

With this in mind, here are the six Sunday NFL Week 16 games expecting notable weather, specifically those with average breezes of at least 10 mph.

Bears vs. Seahawks will not only see strong winds, but snow is also in Sunday afternoon’s forecast in Seattle.

According to RotoGrinders Meteorologist Kevin Roth:

“Just a raw and ugly day in Seattle. We’ll see game-time temps in the 20s, a 10-15 mph wind and snow showers.

No one element there is all that disruptive (I would be more worried if those winds were higher), but putting it all together makes for some impactful weather to the passing and kicking game of both teams.”
