For the first time since the 2014 AFC Divisional Playoffs (held in January 2015) the hated Baltimore Ravens return to Foxboro to battle the Patriots. The Patriots won that game and the Super Bowl. Many people in New England believe Johnny Harbaugh told on the Patriots for "deflating" footballs. Temperatures tonight will drop into the 20's so the footballs will certainly deflate naturally thanks to the Ideal Gas Law (PV=nRT) but I am thinking the venom spewed from the Pats faithful tonight will be full of hot air. Below is forecast for the game and some snow statistics from this morning's winter event.
The match ups are usually close and there is no weather advantage to be found by looking at the games in Foxboro since 2009 (Joe Flacco era)

Winter Event Wrap-Up
All of the snowfall totals can be found here. Listed below are the totals for the big 5 SNE cities.
Northbridge ended up with 1-2". The highest totals were in Northern Worcester County and Western MA. I am happy with my forecast for this event but I was somewhat surprised Northbridge and Uxbridge held a full day of school. The roads seemed fine so I have to agree with the call. With these event Whitinsville is now up to 3" for the season, slightly below average for December 12.
High temperatures tomorrow will be around 40 with mostly sunny skies and light winds.
