In New Orleans, football weather includes temps in 60s

In New Orleans, there's good weather for a championship.

Fans making their way to the Superdome this afternoon in New Orleans to watch the Baltimore Ravens take on the San Francisco 49ers for an NFL title won't have weather to slow them down - or rain on their tailgate parties.

According to the National Weather Service, New Orleans, La., is experiencing partly cloudy skies and temperatures capping out in the low 60s.

Winds are fairly mild, at about 10 mph.

The stadium is a dome, of course, but there are plenty of festivities being conducted outside to ramp up to the Super Bowl action.

Tonight, as fans leave, they'll be greeted by partly cloudy skies and temperatures falling to the upper 40s.

For one set of fans, it'll feel warmer; for the others, likely a bit colder.

    Predicting three stars in Ravens at Texans

    Some sports name three stars of the game after the game. I'll do that one better: I'm going to name them before the Ravens even play. These will be the three stars of the game when the Ravens travel to NRG Stadium to face the 7-7 Houston Texans.
