NFL Weather Report For Week 16: Snow Forecast In Denver At Mile High

Written By Mo Nuwwarah | Last Updated
NFL Week 16 weather

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 16 odds, there is a distinct lack of winter weather for the most part. However, Denver could receive an inch of snow during Sunday Night Football.

Week 15 had a ton of questionable weather, some of which significantly impacted play. Bettors watched the Panthers and Falcons struggle and fall short of 20 total points in the rain, while late under steam cashed for those who beat the closing numbers in the Ravens/Jaguars and Bears/Browns contests.

Keep in mind these forecasts are always subject to change. Monitor potentially impactful situations as the week progresses to see how forecasts evolve. Check back here on Sunday morning for updated forecasts on each of the remaining games.

Seattle Seahawks At Tennessee Titans

This could be a gorgeous day that boosts offenses if the 62-degree temps and light winds hold. However, the evening forecast calls for a pretty strong chance of rain (60%), and if that system moves in a bit earlier than normal, we could see some rain here. There is nothing to react to yet, just one to monitor as the week progresses.

NFL Weather: 62 F, 24% chance of precipitation, winds 5 to 10 mph

Sunday Morning Update: 68 F, 0% chance of precipitation, winds 10 mph

Jacksonville Jaguars At Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Again, the weather looks pretty positive during the day, but there’s a 60% chance of rain in the evening. Unlike the prior game, this one takes place in the afternoon window, so there’s probably a bit more chance the system moves in and affects it.

While this total has dropped from the DraftKings Sportsbook opener of 45 to as low as 43, that probably owes more to the Jags’ injury problems than anything. Trevor Lawrence was announced as entering concussion protocol, and the team might be down yet another receiver in Zay Jones.

NFL Weather: 76 F, 20% chance of precipitation, winds 5 to 10 mph

Sunday Morning Update: 73 F, 1% chance of precipitation, winds 10 mph

Dallas Cowboys At Miami Dolphins

Light showers may occur throughout the day, with the evening forecast calling for a 33% chance of rain. The winds aren’t as strong as those in Week 15, and the field-level winds don’t generally match up with the forecasted numbers in Miami.

Expect offense here, with a Dallas unit needing a bounceback with potentially good weather and an opponent willing to engage in a shootout.

NFL Weather: 76 F, 20% chance of precipitation, winds 10 to 20 mph

Sunday Morning Update: 74 F, 2% chance of precipitation, winds 16 mph

Arizona Cardinals At Chicago Bears

Chicago has a forecast similar to Tampa and Tennessee’s. Things should be fine overall, but the evening does have a 50% chance of rain. With another afternoon kickoff, that would at least put the second half of the game in the path of showers. However, with minimal winds, bettors shouldn’t expect anything too bad.

NFL Weather: 49 F, 24% chance of precipitation, winds 5 to 10 mph

Sunday Morning Update: 51 F, 3% chance of precipitation, winds 9 mph

New England Patriots At Denver Broncos

Christmas Eve will bring snow and cold, but notably little wind in Denver. About an inch is expected to fall. That sort of weather might suit the visiting Patriots just fine, as they’ve been relying almost entirely on their defense, and they’re used to playing in the cold.

Unlike most of the games this week, under money flooded in early. The total has already dropped from 37 to 34.5 at DraftKings Sportsbook.

NFL Weather: 27 F, 57% chance of precipitation, winds 5 to 10 mph

Sunday Morning Update: 29 F, 0% chance of precipitation, winds 8 mph

Las Vegas Raiders At Kansas City Chiefs

It looks like a rainy Christmas in Kansas City, and the winds are expected to be on the high side of the forecasted range at 10 mph. That shouldn’t be prohibitive, but it’s worth noting that the days on either side of this game are also expected to see some rain. So this one doesn’t look likely to clear up as of now.

Initial action on the total moved it up to 43 from 42.5. Then, under money hit and hammered it down to 41.5.

NFL Weather: 56 F, 42% chance of precipitation, winds 5 to 10 mph

Sunday Morning Update: 49 F, 98% chance of precipitation, winds 10 mph

New York Giants At Philadelphia Eagles

Another game with a good chance of evening showers (40%) that looks pretty clear during the day. The notable lack of wind should keep the offenses pristine, but since this is another afternoon kickoff, any evening systems may affect the second half or the entire game.

NFL Weather: 51 F, 13% chance of precipitation, winds light and variable

Sunday Morning Update: 48 F, 15% chance of precipitation, winds 3 mph

Baltimore Ravens at San Francisco 49ers

Santa Clara is usually known for having calm weather, which looks like the case here, but there’s still a chance for rain. Thus, we’ve noted the game here with an eye toward a weekend update. But with calm winds and two offenses that have produced, there should be plenty of room for points.

NFL Weather: 46 F, 24% chance of precipitation, winds light and variable

Sunday Morning Update: 54 F, 4% chance of precipitation, winds 5 mph
