Projected weather for 49ers vs. Eagles matchup on Sunday

Forecast

As far as Philadelphia in late January goes, the weather should be very nice. The forecast calls for mostly cloudy skies with a high around 50 degrees. There is just a 7 percent chance of rain with wind calm at roughly 8 miles per hour.

Fantasy/betting implications

Nothing in this weather forecast should impact your fantasy football or betting. If anything, these conditions are ideal for the 49ers running game to establish itself, but we would have expected that anyway. Keep an eye on the forecast over the next six days to see if more extreme weather ends up moving into the area.
