49ers Vs. Giants, 2012 NFC Championship Game: Weather Report

Well, it’s looking like it’s shaping up to be a soggy weekend here in the Bay Area, meaning there might finally be some weather playing a factor in San Francisco during this year’s NFC Championship game between the San Francisco 49ers and New York Giants.

Unlike last Saturday’s divisional matchup with the New Orleans Saints, where the two teams appeared to be playing at Qualcomm Stadium in San Diego with all the warm sunshine, this Sunday has a strong possibility for rain according to the weather channel, and will have a soggy field regardless with rain in the forecast almost everyday from Wednesday on this week.

Does this forecast really assist the 49ers in any big way? Unlike the Saints, who were basically a dome-or-lose team, the Giants are more adaptable to weather and likely won’t be slowed much by a little rain. Either way, looks like a little football weather is finally in the forecast for Candlestick this season.
