High and Dry....
After coming off the bomb-cyclone event last week, for the first time this season, we have almost no weather risks for our slate of Week 8 games. As a result, impacts will be minimal or non-existent. This is a result of a strong 1032 mb high that will is wedging its way south from Canada into the central US on Sunday. This large synoptic feature stretches over a large portion of the CONUS creating dry conditions over much of the interior US. As a result, with limited moisture for the atmosphere to work with, precipitation should not be a factor for this week's games.
Areas to Monitor:
With a strong pressure gradient setting up between the area of high pressure over the central US, and an occluded low pressure system to the east, some areas may see some elevated wind.
Pittsburg Steelers @ Cleveland Browns:
Winds could pick up 15-20 mph. We don't expect these winds to be impactful, but will continue to monitor.
San Fransisco 49ers @ Chicago Bears:
Winds could pick up 15-20 mph with gusts reaching 25 mph. We don't expect these winds to be impactful, but will continue to monitor.
Buffalo may get period of showers associated with the occluded low pressure system tracking cross the Northeastern interior.
Miami Dolphins @ Buffalo Bills:
Isolated rain showers for the first half are possible. We don't expect this to be impactful at this time.
No player impacts are expected.
