A look back into memorable Super Bowl Sunday weather events

The conditions are shaping up for a beautiful day down in Glendale, Arizona for Super Bowl 57. But looking back to the past, it wasn't always that great.

In 2018 the Eagles won against the Patriots during the last time they visited the Super Bowl. They saw a high of nine degrees making for a colder time. Now thankfully, that game was actually indoors, so they got to stay a lot warmer while celebrating their victory.

One of the most memorable events was his ice Super Bowl back in 2000 and Atlanta, Georgia. This region was not really outfitted for freezing rain events, but they actually had two of them in the same week leading up to the game for the Rams to beat the Titans. The first one was January 23 that led to a 47 car pileup. The second one on January 28 nearly shut the city down. Residents said leading up to the game it was like a ghost town, but the game went on and the Rams won.

During Super Bowl XLI; known widely as one of the most memorable for its halftime show, back in 2007 in Miami Gardens where the Colts took on the bears and one. They saw rainfall totals just under an inch during the game causing plenty of commotion because it was an outdoor stadium. This lead into the infamous Purple Rain halftime.

Things are looking a lot different as you start to make your way back to the Southwest toward Glendale, Arizona on Sunday. Conditions look to become partly sunny with winds out of the south to southwest at 5-10 mph with gusts up to 15 mph, and the high looking at a calm and cool 66 degrees. They have the option of taking the roof off and right now it's looking good.
