Thousands of people will be getting into Santa Clara, California in the coming days as the big game on Sunday approaches. The game will be between Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos at the Levi’s Stadium which is the home of the San Francisco 49ers. Although the game will take place during the Prime wet season of California, this year due to strong El Nino the spectators will be saved from rain on the day of the game.
This year is a strong El Nino year, which leads to rain in every two to three days on the west coast. This pattern will continue well into the first week of February.
People arriving at the venue early for concerts and events may witness spells of rain a week before the game. Spotty and light showers will occur on Tuesday. Those people who are traveling to the Super Bowl City in downtown San Francisco will have to keep Umbrellas and raincoats handy.
Another system will make its way across the region on Thursday. However, majority of the rain will occur north Santa Clara and San Francisco.
By the weekend, a large high pressure will build over much of the area for the Super Bowl weekend. This will help to ease the showers and lead to above normal temperatures and plenty of sunshine. This break in rainfall comes just in time for the weekend festivities.
