In the Week 16 weather report, we’ll go over which games appear to have the strongest forecast wind gusts, possible precipitation, and more. We will also give you the games where we should not have to worry about the weather, that is, which games you can choose from in DFS without getting ulcer. Useful weather resources include the National Weather Service and Dark Sky, among others.
The worst weather games
We still haven’t had any truly frozen game this season, but this one will be below freezing with temperatures around 30 degrees. The wind will be around 10 mph, so the wind chills will decrease even more. There is a slight chance of precipitation, but nothing that could cause problems.
Bear at Seahawks
There is a 60% chance of running and snowing with temperatures dropping below zero for this game. The wind will be around 9 mph, but if that precipitation becomes heavy it could turn into a sloppy game.
Best weather games
Colts at the Cardinals
There is actually a chance of rain in Arizona, but only a 35% chance with temperatures in the 50s and wind around 3mph. No worries here.
Giants at Eagles
Wind is the only concern for this game, as it should be around 12mph. As it stands, it’s not that problematic, especially with temperatures reaching 40 degrees and no rain.
Buccaneers among the panthers
Perfect weather for this one, as the temperatures will hit 60 degrees, the skies will be clear and gain around 5 mph.
Jaguars at Jets
Clear skies and temperatures reaching 40 degrees Celsius aren’t cause for concern, but the wind is projected at 16 mph. If it increases by then, it could have an impact on infractions.
This game also has winds of 16 mph in the forecast, with highs around 80 degrees and clear skies.
Temperatures will be above zero at around 40 degrees. No rain and winds around 10mph. The weather shouldn’t be a problem in this highly anticipated game.
Crows to Bengals
Very good weather for this big AFC North match, because the temperatures will be around 50 degrees, the sky will be clear and the wind will be light.
