It’s been a mostly glorious few weeks for NFL weather, and the Week 13 forecast is no different. Despite the calendar flipping to December, we have no snow or even rain in the forecast and just a few games with wind and temperature concerns. Fantasy football owners have enough other things to worry about when making start ’em, sit ’em decisions, so it’s nice to be able to check weather off the list.
Before we get into the Week 13 forecasts, here’s a reminder that if you have any questions about sports weather or how weather could impact play (and, potentially, your fantasy, DFS, and gambling decisions), don’t hesitate to reach out to Rotogrinders’ meteorologist Kevin Roth on Twitter (@KevinRothWx) or check out the hourly NFL weather forecasts on RotoGrinders.

NFL Week 13 weather updates
Forecasts courtesy for Kevin Roth at RotoGrinders.
Raiders @ Jets. Winds around 10-15 mph are expected. It’s likely not enough to have any real impact, but it’s the closest thing we have to “weather” this week.
Cold-weather games: Eagles @ Packers, Lions @ Bears, Broncos @ Chiefs, Washington @ Steelers, and Cowboys @ Ravens all will be played with temperatures in the 30s, but none are expected to even dip below freezing. There also doesn’t figure to be any wind or precipitation concerns outside of small chances of rain in Green Bay and Chicago. Ultimately, NFL players shouldn’t have a problem dealing with the slightly frigid temperatures, so you shouldn’t adjust your fantasy lineups based on the weather for these games.
All of this is subject to change as we get closer to kickoff. You can follow meteorologist Kevin Roth on Twitter (@KevinRothWx) and check out the hourly NFL weather forecasts on RotoGrinders. For the best weather-related fantasy advice, take a look at WeatherEdge.
