80% chance of precipitation. Sounds like more rain in the afternoon than snow, but this is just an FYI for those either playing in the playoffs, or trying to get there.

Deep balls will work well in this if the field conditions are hurting already. Anyone know what the grass looks like on the field?
 
You must not be too familiar with Cleveland weather, it changes hourly. Don't concern yourself with the weather in Cleveland until Sunday morning, even then take it with a grain of salt.

concerns about weather are usually much ado about nothing . . . I've seen plenty of high scoring games in rain/snow conditions if the wind is mild . . .

Saw some research elsewhere that indicates otherwise. Rain has a small impact on fantasy numbers, but snow (and bitter cold) has a rather significant impact, mix in some wind too and you have a game too avoid.Cleveland is definitely a red flag for these types of games, see Buffalo/Cleveland last year. That weather wasn't forecasted for kickoff, winds were supposed to pick up around kickoff (not to that level though) and the snow not until later at night (again, not to that level though). What happened, both hitting at the same time and with a much greater intensity that forecasted about an hour before kickoff, was not forecasted, and not unusual for Cleveland.
 
Unless it's really

or high winds that make the ball go crazy directions, I'm not too worried about weather. Both become run only games.

Just bumping for the latest weather report from Cleveland homers.

I would hate to have to bench Peyton for JaMarcus Russell.

 
kickoff temp. 39 , high 41 - cloudy, light rain on & off all day picking up later in the afternoon (late in the game / after the game), no snow until overnight 1" or less by morning, winds mostly moderate but a few gusts at times.
