America is set for the coldest month of the century as weather forecasters predict yet another freezing blast of Arctic air - putting Super Bowl Sunday in jeopardy.
Teams have been warned to stay on high alert for changes to the scheduling of the first Super Bowl to be played in an open-air stadium. Temperatures have already hit record lows, at times making parts of the U.S. colder than the North Pole, and are expected to plunge in the coming days.
Meteorologists are forecasting yet another snow storm for the East Coast, which will arrive on Monday First Super Bowl to be held in open-air stadium set to be hit by freezing cold
Teams on high alert game in New Jersey on February 2 could be postponed
The Midwest will be hit with a blast as well between Friday and Saturday, which may cause dangerous roads and flight cancellations
Yet another storm is expected to follow the storm scheduled for Monday and is set to hit just one or two days before the Super Bowl on February 2
The championship game will be held in East Rutherford, New Jersey where workers shoveled snow all day after Tuesday's unexpected whiteout

Dog-gone global warming.
14 years so far in this century! Don’t you love how the media can hype things? LOL Climate change is here. /s
Of the century, as in the last 13 years, or of the last 100 consecutive years? The latter is more impressive than the former.
What do we want? Global Warming!
When do we want it? Now!!!
Whom, unlike the domestic media, at least report something.
Y’know, I was thinking...
I read a book a while ago called “The Biblical Flood and the Ice Epoch” that suggested that before the great flood the entire planet was covered in clouds (the waters above mentioned in genesis) with no direct sunlight, ever. And tradewinds ran north and south, giving a temperature variance between the poles and the equator of around 3 degrees.
So, with this polar vortex we’re freezing our hineys off, the “warmer” air had to go somewhere. The pole didn’t just become a big vacuum. I understand Alaska is getting record warm temps. Wouldn’t it be fun if the planet was returning to its original equalibrium in a way.
No, I don’t believe it is, but it’s an interesting thought experiment
The Global Warming Channel is predicting highs of 40 and scattered showers on Pooper Bowl day.
It looks like if Global Warming gets any worse we’re going to freeze to death.
Correction: Highs of 39 and scattered showers.
Don’t worry in the end 2014 will be recorded as the “hottest year on record”.
Yes, but the game will not start until 6:35pm ET.
Stan Lee had the media as manipulator-of-the-truth accurately pegged in his "Spiderman" character J Jonah Jameson:
That's just not true.
39 and showers? Then why the hysterical article?
The Global Warming Channel is predicting lows of 31 and rain/snow showers for Pooper Bowl night.
So, gametime will be in the mid 30s.
Better cancel it, there will be thousands of hypothermia deaths, and the half-time dancers will have to cover their boobs.

Super VI was played with temperatures in the 30s at kick off.
That would trigger an ice age. The earth loses heat in low latitudes and mid latitudes in summer but not in winter or in high latitudes. If it does, then the oceans will cool rather rapidly starting at the poles and permanent snow will quickly build up on the continents. That would continue as long as the meridional flow you described continued.
I hear ticket (re) sales are way off. Volume and price.
Ya know they call it global warming when it’s hot, and climate change (caused by gore-bull warming) when it’s cold.
Either way the ‘science’ is politically driven and therefore NOT science.
That would trigger an ice age.
BTW, in the book I mentioned. the author makes the argument that the earth had a close encounter with another planet (say mars or Venus or some other) that also had an ice moon. This ice moon was the rain as well as a fair amount of our polar ice caps. It may be that the continental shelves really were below sea level before that. He also suggested that the earth and this other planet spinning around each other ripped up a new mountain range with each revolution.
I guess Algore didn’t see his shadow this year.
It has been business...as...usual.
We were walking back through Times Square last night during a little snow squall and all the outdoor vendors were conducting business, they were working on that Super Bowl staging, restaurants were crammed with patrons and all the Broadway shows were sold out. Even the famous New York City rats were seen scurrying about (I've developed a keen eye for them).
Big Apple not missing a beat despite the "icy winds" and "wind driven snow". Which used to be considered normal January weather until this climate change frenzy has turned every single weather event into a political debate.
“......as weather forecasters predict yet another freezing blast of Arctic air - putting Super Bowl Sunday in jeopardy.”....
My heart is crying but certainly NOT for the Super Bowl or those who would attend. I’m thinking of how this bitterly cold winter has hit the people who have to heat their homes as they try to keep from freezing to death and IF, they have enough money to pay for the now expensive fuel which is drastically short supply.
I have a suggestion: “TAX all the players who would play and those who bought the tickets to attend the “game” and give that money towards the fuel cost for the people who are freezing to death. Those people are NOT the “Takers” of this country, they are the ones who actually work for a living (assuming they have jobs). Other than the workers at the Super Bowl, who really “needs” the Super Bowl?
Warm globally, cool locally! LOL!

U.S braces itself for coldest month of the century with yet another Arctic blast as fears grow for Super Bowl Sunday
IMHO? If The End Times were right around the corner, it’d be WELCOME RELIEF! :)
Our Bowl’s in Jeopardy, Baby!
I Lost on Jeopardy, Baby!
If the NFL is dumb enough to host the Superbowl in NJ in February, they deserve to lose money and lots of it!
Ahh, but the “modern” Superbowl has much less to do with football today then when it began. Now, much of it is about outdoor entertainment ... on-field interviews; little-known bands at half-time; etc....
The earth may be warming ever so slightly on average, but New England definitely is not. I’m moving to Florida in 17 months when I finally retire.
Everything was so much saner then.
"I Like Ike!"
I was wondering the same thing. Seems awfully ridiculous to say "of the century" about anything when it's only barely 2014.
Yes, they do mean since 2000.
This year doesn’t come close to say, the winter of ‘35-’36.
There are two things I really despise, and halftime shows are both of ‘em.....
These systems are affecting mostly Blue States....elections have consequences, children.
In fact, depending on where exactly you’re at, this might not even be as cold as 2000-2001. Any website with “weather” in the name is just getting to be just LIES.
It is called Winter. Some winters are colder than others. NJ is always cold in winter....very cold. More southerly states are warmer.
Picking a place to play football in winter, requires some intelligent and logical thinking. Evidently, the NFL lacks that.
Just get that dipstick mayor from New York City to go to the stadium. He puts out enough hot air to warm the place up.
“The temperature at kickoff was a windy 39 degrees Fahrenheit, making this the coldest outdoor Super Bowl to date.”
Dang, too bad they don’t have google in Britain.
Super Bowl IV was played at Tulane Stadium in New Orleans, outdoors. The chiefs beat the Vikings. It was cool, overcast and slightly drunk. Ed McMahan said New Orleans should be proclaimed Super bowl City and all Super Bowls should be played there. I was there but sober.
I could give a rats arse about the Super Bowl.
So, we’re supposed to feel sorry for these ultra rich, thugs who play a dumb game for a living? Oh wow, three hours in the cold...say it ain’t so!
That actually sounds pretty good. Maybe they could replay that instead of this year's show.
Been a long, long time since I watched a stoopidbowl half time show. How pathetic that attention whore Janet Jackson flashing half a billion people is all anyone remembers about the SB half time show.
No thanks. Been there while in the military...It's why we stay in CA.
In California, the year round Mediterranean like weather is worth a fortune to us.
