The New York Giants and San Francisco 49ers are scheduled to kick off the 2012 NFC Championship game at 6:30 p.m. (ET) on Sunday afternoon. The first time the two teams met it was sunny and nice in California, but the playoff weather forecast doesn't look like it's going to cooperate quite the same.
The temperature is scheduled to drop about two degrees during the game, and although 52 to 50 isn't a dramatic drop, the conditions that come along with it could impact the game.
Weather.com's hour-by-hour forecast indicates the chance of rain will move from 15 percent to 50 percent by 5 p.m. local time -- right around halftime, likely -- while the wind is scheduled to stay at a moderate 15 miles per hour.
