As the Green Bay Packers prepare to face the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday night at Lambeau Field, weather conditions are set to play a role in the highly anticipated matchup. Initial predictions of severe rain and snow have evolved, with updated forecasts suggesting rain, not snow, will be a factor during the game.
Earlier in the day, between 7 and 9 a.m. ET, the expected snowfall decreased from significant amounts to mere sprinkles. The hourly forecasts indicate that snow is anticipated until around 5 p.m. ET. However, by kickoff, the weather is expected to be cloudy and windy, with a wind speed of approximately 8 mph.
Both the Green Bay Packers and the Kansas City Chiefs are accustomed to late-season cold weather, minimizing the potential impact on their playing strategies. Lambeau Field, having likely been prepared for significant rain and snowfall, should not pose a major challenge.
Particularly for the Packers, the weather historically hasn’t been a hindrance. Head Coach Matt LaFleur boasts a perfect record of 15 wins in December games throughout his NFL career. However, the game presents an interesting scenario for Packers’ quarterback Jordan Love, who is set to start his first NFL game in cold temperatures.
Despite the Chiefs’ underperformance discussions this season, they aim to assert their dominance in the division. A victory against the Packers would secure a 9-3 record for the season.
The Chiefs vs. Packers game is scheduled to kick off at 8:20 p.m. ET on Sunday, December 3, 2023, at Lambeau Field in Green Bay, Wisconsin. NBC will broadcast the game, featuring Melissa Stark on the sidelines, and play-by-play commentator Mike Tirico alongside color analyst Cris Collinsworth in the commentary booth.
