INDIANAPOLIS — No need for a scarf or hoodie so far in Indianapolis: Ice and snow are no-shows as Super Bowl week gets under way for only the fourth game in a northern city.
Last year's conditions were some of the Super Bowl's worst. Ice and snow pelted the Dallas area, snarling traffic and forcing everyone to bundle up.
The weather is a concern when the big game is held in a cold-weather climate. Temperatures in the mid-to-upper 50s are forecast for the first half of the week in Indianapolis, well above average for a city that usually has snow on the ground in early February.
The first northern Super Bowl was held 30 years ago in Detroit, which endured a week of snow and below-zero wind chills.
