NFL Weather Report For Week 15: Miami Highlights Rainy Weekend

NFL weather report week 15

Each week, the NFL weather reports loom as potential game-changers. Ignore them to your detriment, as they can help you find a winning bet or avoid losing one. Particularly with the calendar now hitting December, cold, wind, and snow could affect outdoor games in most parts of the country. Regarding NFL Week 15 odds, bettors will grapple with another rain-soaked weekend of forecasts, most glaringly in Miami, which could feature winds around 30 mph to accompany the precipitation.

Week 14 had some terrible weather in the initial forecasts, but much of it cleared up. The Rams and Ravens fought through some of the rainiest weather to put more than 60 points on the board. Poor initial forecasts in Cleveland and Chicago never came to fruition, illustrating the importance of tracking the forecasts and not simply tailing early under steam in bad weather spots.

Keep in mind these forecasts are always subject to change. Monitor potentially impactful situations as the week progresses to see how forecasts evolve.

Minnesota Vikings At Cincinnati Bengals

This is a “check back closer to game time” situation, as things will probably be clear. However, there is a small chance of rain and a 30% chance of evening showers. If that system were to move in a bit early, bettors might see some rain during this Saturday affair.

The total has already dropped at DraftKings Sportsbook, from 40 to , but that probably has more to do with the Vikings’ uncertain situation at QB than anything in the forecast. Nick Mullens may start for the first time this season after another Josh Dobbs egg in Week 14.

NFL Weather: 51 F, 14% chance of precipitation, winds light and variable

Saturday Morning Update: TBD

Tampa Bay Buccaneers At Green Bay Packers

Forty-two degrees probably qualifies as unseasonably warm in Green Bay, so that not-so-frozen tundra could see more offense than usual this time of year. However, the winds look like they could be right around the edge of the impactful range. Particularly, given how much these teams get out of their deep passing games at times, that could lead both offenses away from their most effective plays.

NFL Weather: 42 F, 6% chance of precipitation, winds 10 to 15 mph

Sunday Morning Update: 41 F, 45% chance of precipitation, winds 10 mph

New York Jets At Miami Dolphins

It’s still early. But given that the entire week in Miami features winds around 20 mph and a high chance of rain, expect to see some deleterious conditions. That would seem to favor the Jets strongly. Although Miami successfully ran the ball in the first matchup between these two, anything that puts a dent in the effectiveness of the incomparable Tyreek Hill likely helps New York.

While the total has not moved, early action has come in on the Jets, perhaps reflecting this reality. They’ve already moved from +12.5 to .

NFL Weather: 75 F, 58% chance of precipitation, winds 20 to 30 mph

Sunday Morning Update: 75 F, 1% chance of precipitation, winds 18 mph

Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers

Charlotte looks like it will see some rain as well. Critically, though, the wind won’t be as big a factor as in Miami. Still, a rain game between two teams that have been much better running than passing for most of the season (Week 14 notwithstanding for Atlanta) likely means little in the way of scoring.

And that’s exactly what the market expects, although the low total here hasn’t received any action. The number could hardly go lower, as even in the current offensive environment, we’ve only seen a few games below 35 this season.

NFL Weather: 55 F, 56% chance of precipitation, winds 10 to 15 mph

Sunday Morning Update: 47 F, 100% chance of precipitation, winds 12 mph

Chicago Bears At Cleveland Browns

These two teams are no strangers to playing in subpar conditions, and they’ll potentially find themselves in that situation this week. Though the conditions are forecast to be relatively mild by Cleveland standards in December, it’s still worth noting that we could see wind and rain here. Most of the rain is forecast to hit in the evening, though, with a 30% chance there.

NFL Weather: 49 F, 16% chance of precipitation, winds 10 to 15 mph

Sunday Morning Update: 45 F, 96% chance of precipitation, winds 16 mph

Kansas City Chiefs At New England Patriots

Like several other games, bettors should have nothing actionable to worry about here unless evening showers move their timeline up over the coming week. There’s a 60% chance of evening rain.

Again, the market hasn’t moved on this, or it’s already baked into a low starting number. With a top-10 Chiefs defense facing off against Bailey Zappe, the home team will likely have a tough time scoring points in even friendly conditions.

NFL Weather: 48 F, 21% chance of precipitation, winds 5 to 10 mph

Sunday Morning Update: 51 F, 6% chance of precipitation, winds 6 mph

Dallas Cowboys At Buffalo Bills

Yet again, this game has a potentially problematic weather system forecast to hit in the evening. The Bills will host the Cowboys in the afternoon slate, meaning some evening weather (38 degrees, 51% chance of rain) will likely come into play. Even the daytime forecast has strong gusts built into the wind range, which could limit offenses that have been quick to put points on the board for much of the season.

NFL Weather: 47 F, 19% chance of precipitation, winds 10 to 20 mph

Sunday Morning Update: 49 F, 57% chance of precipitation, winds 12 mph

Baltimore Ravens at Jacksonville Jaguars

Jacksonville also looks likely to see some rain on Sunday night, with medium-strength winds to accompany.

Of course, with the Ravens already showing the kind of offensive output they can produce in the rain (449 yards, 6.3 YPP), the market has no reason to expect some mild showers and medium winds to shut them down. Hence, bettors are looking at a high-ish total by 2023 standards. Baltimore has run the ball much better than Jacksonville and would probably be happy to see any weather that limits passing attacks.

NFL Weather: 53 F, 58% chance of precipitation, winds 10 to 15 mph

Sunday Morning Update: 57 F, 6% chance of precipitation, winds 16 mph

Philadelphia Eagles At Seattle Seahawks

Who could have guessed that Seattle would get some rain on a weekend when it seems the entire country will do so? With little to no wind, this game probably won’t feel the effects as much as some other stadiums.

NFL Weather: 43 F, 56% chance of precipitation, winds light and variable

Sunday Morning Update: 46 F, 56% chance of precipitation, winds 3 mph
