TAMPA, Fla. — A big part of getting to host the Super Bowl in Tampa Bay is our great weather. The weather also has a big influence on scoring in the game.

So how nice will the weather be Sunday at Raymond James Stadium with the eyes of the world watching us? 

Well thanks to a cold front sweeping through Sunday, the bay area did see some early morning showers and storms move through central Florida. But thankfully, all that activity has cleared out, just in time for the afternoon!

The slower arrival of the cold front will also keep the game comfortable, in the 60s.

Here's the latest:

Sky: Sunday brings mostly to partly cloudy skies through the afternoon. However, by evening kickoff, skies gradually clear with clouds continuing to decrease throughout the game.

Temperature: High temperatures in the afternoon will rise in the low to mid-70s. By evening kickoff, temperatures will be in the upper 60s.

Wind: The Buccaneer's head coach, Bruce Arians, has said wind is the biggest weather factor for him. The wind will be a bit breezy during the afternoon, near 20 mph at times. However, just like the cloud cover, winds should diminish during the game Sunday evening. 

Winds at kickoff should be from the northwest at less than 10 mph.
