NFL officials have said from the get go, that they would like for the roof to be open during Super Bowl LIII. They have been very vague about this, however.

So will the weather cooperate for the NFL's wish?

Temperatures are warming up this weekend - just in time for the big game.

Saturday will bring us a cloud-sun mix with more warm temps in the 60s. Saturday will be dry with most of the sunshine north of Interstate 20. 

Sunday, we may see some light and brief rain showers in the morning, but that small risk fades away in the hours leading up to the big game. 

Based on the current forecast, the FOX 5 Storm Team believes the roof will be open for the game.
