Weather for Panthers’ game: A world of difference

Fans planning to attend Sunday’s NFL playoff game in Charlotte between the Carolina Panthers and San Francisco 49ers won’t have to worry about bundling up.

Forecasters say temperatures will be near 60 degrees when the two teams play at 1 p.m. at Bank of America Stadium.

That is about 60 degrees warmer than the conditions Sunday when the 49ers beat the host Green Bay Packers.

However, the outlook also includes a 50 percent chance of rain. That would be the sixth consecutive weekend in which rain has fallen in Charlotte.

The late-week warming trend is expected to continue for several days, into next week. Advance forecasts indicate a return to colder weather later next week, but forecasters say it is too early to tell exactly how cold that will be.
