ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) -- Super Bowl fans should chill out and not worry about the weather for Sunday's game in North Texas.
The nation's midsection braced for a massive winter storm Monday.
Conditions were milder in Arlington. A winter storm watch is in effect through Tuesday afternoon in the city midway between Dallas and Fort Worth where the Packers and the Steelers will play. The extended forecast, from the National Weather Service, is partly cloudy Sunday with highs in the mid-50s.
Conditions outside the $1.3 million home of the Dallas Cowboys shouldn't affect the play inside. Organizers previously announced that the retractable roof will be closed for the Super Bowl.
Fort Worth-based American Airlines offered customers the opportunity to change their plans, at no charge, due to the anticipated weather impact in the Midwest.
