Despite expected winds from the systems, blustery conditions during the game are unlikely. No wind advisories for Santa Clara Valley are anticipated.

The San Jose International Airport weather gauge predicts an afternoon high of 61 degrees on Saturday, with game-time temperatures likely in the high 50s.

In preparation for the game, former weather service forecaster Jan Null recommends bringing a poncho as a precaution.
