The big day is almost here, with friends and family members coming from all over the city to unite for this one special moment, having the perfect decorations, perfect food, and most of all the perfect TV.

Yes that's right I am talking about Superbowl Sunday!

And of course, the quesiton on everyone's mind besides, "who's going to win," is "Will I be able to grill outside?"

Here in El Paso, the answer is quite simple... YES!

After experiencing those strong winds across the region, the weather system is finally moving along, not as fast as we would want it to, but fast enough to leave us with beautiful temperature for Sunday!

Those highs will stay on the cooler side as a weak cool front comes in dropping us down to the 50's all day, so on top of your jersey, you may want to bring a light sweather for the girls, and for the men, you have two options, brave the 50° weather, or brave the 50° weather.

I'm kidding, the light breeze shouldn't affect the wind chill too much, all in all, El Paso is looking beautiful for Sunday.

But for the game in the New York-New Jersey area, it's a bit of a different story.

Good news, though, is the weather won't be below freezing like it was predicted last week.

Feb. 2 is shaping up to be one of the mildest days in East Rutherford, N.J. in quite some time.

According to, the high temperature of the day will be a downright balmy 50 degrees Fahrenheit, which for people living in Denver and Seattle, 40-50° isn't a big deal.

In fact, Super Bowl XLVIII won't even surpass Super Bowl VI as the coldest ever, according to Raphael Miranda of WNBC in New York.

Now to the bad news.

There is a chance the area will get hit by drizzle.

Although the news isn't so bad, fans attending the game should still go prepared.

Snow isn't expected to hit until after midnight, and drizzle is expected in the evening, so there is a huge possibility there may be not any percipitation to worry  about at the game!

All in all, Mother Nature has cut us some slack and will let us enjoy this one big and special moment we await every year.
