During the last 13 years, the New York City area high has ranged from 32 to 50 degrees. There have been rain and snow showers on Feb. 2, but there have been snowstorms within two weeks of the date, including 18 inches of snow on Jan. 26-27, 2011.
The major problem facing any Super Bowl in terms of weather is that it is not a one-day event. The game is the culmination of a week-long slate of events, including practices, media day and other activities.
A major snowstorm could shut things down for days or cause a major impact for fans if the snow came during the game.
Rayno also added that though it is only a small risk it is much greater when compared to the other stadiums or venues that have hosted the Big Game so far.
