The rain has moved out, and the Super Bowl forecast looks like it’s going to be a winner.
According to Channel 2 Action News meteorologist Eboni Deon, there was only a 30 percent chance of scattered showers Sunday morning. But those showers mostly moved out of the city by noon, with clouds remaining.
By kickoff at 6:30 p.m., it should be around 60 degrees, Deon said.
Sunday is slightly warmer than early February’s average high of 54 degrees, and a lot warmer than last year’s Super Bowl in Minneapolis, when it was 2 degrees, Deon said.
The mild temperatures led officials to make the call to open the roof of Mercedes-Benz Stadium for the pregame festivities. The plan is for the roof to be closed for the game itself.
Anyone taking to the streets Sunday should be aware of a number of road closures around downtown because of the Super Bowl.

Looking beyond game day, metro Atlanta will see days reaching into the 70s again starting Tuesday.
