The NFC Divisional round of the 2024 NFL playoffs will feature a game between the San Francisco 49ers and the Green Bay Packers this Saturday night in Santa Clara, with weather conditions expected to play a role.

Forecasts from Football Forecast indicate a high likelihood of rain during the game, with a 90% chance of light rain predicted to persist throughout the evening. Despite this, temperatures are anticipated to remain moderate, hovering around 50 degrees.

This rainy scenario starkly contrasts the conditions the Packers, the No. 7 seed, experienced in their surprising victory against the Dallas Cowboys at AT&T Stadium last Sunday, where they enjoyed more favorable weather.

“Packers taking on the 49ers, this is going to be a super soaker of a game. Lots of rain. We could even see showers during the game,” said “Good Morning America” meteorologist Somara Theodore.

The 49ers, having secured the NFC’s top seed, have demonstrated their versatility in various weather conditions throughout the season. Their impressive track record includes victories over the Philadelphia Eagles and Cowboys, eliminating both NFC East teams from the playoffs. As a result, the road to the Super Bowl seems increasingly likely to pass through San Francisco.

As the 49ers prepare for this game, they aim to reach the NFC Championship game for the third consecutive year. Their previous two appearances ended in defeats to the Eagles and Rams, and they are now focused on changing the outcome this season.
