NFL Week 12 Weather Report and Forecast - Watching for wind and rain

As usual in my NFL weather forecasts, the main focus is to identify games with high winds or heavy rain. Of all possible weather variables, wind is the biggest detriment to offenses, with a 15+mph wind being impactful and anything over 20mph sustained becoming a major problem for passing and kicking. Rain is another important factor in scoring, in particular heavy rain, which makes it harder to both throw and catch a pass, as well as turnovers increasing across the board. Temperature rarely impacts scoring, so it will only be noted here in extreme cases, like late-season games with temps below freezing. You can use this to your advantage making your picks on DFS sites and sportsbooks.

It’s also worth noting that while winds are fairly predictable a few days out, trying to pinpoint rain over a stadium is difficult even a few hours ahead of a game. So for the very latest info as the NFL Week 12 forecast changes, stay tuned to @KevinRothWx on Twitter or check my main NFL weather forecast page.

NFL Week 12 Weather Report & Forecast

Sunday Main Slate – November 27th

Baltimore Ravens at Jacksonville Jaguars – Front should be moving through right around gametime, bringing a chance for some rain and 15mph sustained winds (stronger gusts).

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Cleveland Browns – Scattered showers, winds gusting up to 25mph (sustained winds more like 10-15).

Chicago Bears at New York Jets – Looks like an absolute soaker, with light rain early building to heavy rain late. Winds manageable.

Atlanta Falcons at Washington Commanders – Like in NY, heavy rain is the story. The difference is that most of the rain here will be pregame / early, and we’ll be drying out as the game goes on. The field could be significantly impacted.

Cincinnati Bengals at Tennessee Titans 15mph sustained winds with stronger gusts.

Las Vegas Raiders at Seattle Seahawks – A few showers possible.

Sunday Night Football – November 27th

Green Bay Packers at Philadelphia Eagles – Chance for showers, 10-15mph winds.

Monday Night Football – November 28th

Pittsburg Steelers at Indianapolis Colts – In a dome.

Overall Week 12 Weather Forecast

When looking for an edge, I’m always trying to find high winds first, and rain/snow second. While no games truly stand out as a wind-fest (nothing over 20mph sustained), there are plenty of games with a wind/rain combo (or just a downright soaker) that will impact play. As I mentioned earlier, it’s best to follow forecasts right up until kickoff, so stay tuned to @KevinRothWx for the latest.
