The temperature for the game that rendered Tom Coughlin’s face a permanent shade of red was one degree below zero. As of Friday, the projected high at Green Bay was five degrees below zero.
But now there’s hope for the 49ers, and for anyone who will voluntarily or involuntarily expose themselves to those elements. The revised forecast shows a high temperature of one degree. The hour-by-hour forecast shows that the temperature at kickoff of 3:40 p.m. CT is expected to be between one and zero degrees, with a wind chill near 20 below.
