Though Super Bowl XLVIII is scheduled to be played on Feb. 2, the NFL has put contingency plans in place to have the game played anytime between Jan. 31 and Feb. 3, according to the Chicago Tribune.
The forecast calls for it to be a high of 40 degrees with about a 30 percent chance of either snow or rain in East Rutherford, N.J., on Super Bowl Sunday. This would be the first Super Bowl played outdoors in cold weather in the NFL’s history.
Officials have said that moving the date of the game would be worst-case scenario and there is a low probability that it will happen.
But it could.
The Tribune mentioned in an article on Thursday that workers have removed 13 inches of snow from the bowl seating area this week as the crew prepares seats for the big game.
