2011 Super Bowl: Super Bowl Week Begins In Dallas With Frigid Weather Forecast

Super Bowl week is finally here in DFW and after taunting us with sunny skies and 60-70 degree weather the past several days, the weather gods are sending frigid temperatures with rain, sleet and even snow the way of visiting media and party-goers. 

Weather.com's forecast for today doesn't look too bad - a high of 60 and sunny. But as more media arrives later in the evening in time for tomorrow's media day, it will turn colder with possible precip. Media day is expected to endure the worst weather, with a 100% chance of a "wintry mix," a high of 34, and temperatures bottoming out at 13 degrees. Wednesday will just be cold, with a high of 23. It will warm to 34 on Thursday, before possible snow on Friday and a high of 38.

About the time that much of the Super Bowl week-oriented media leaves town, the weather looks to improve, with no more precip and highs of 56 and 62 over the weekend. Next Monday is set to bring more rain as a final treat for those who stick around for the post mortem.

So that's that, we're fairly certain to get poor reviews of our city this week, as visitors endure unusually nasty weather while spending hours on our highways commuting around this expansive metropolis to various events and looking for entertainment. We're more likely to be remembered with Detroit than New Orleans or Los Angeles.
