In anticipation of the 50th Super Bowl, we examined football season (Sep-Dec) temperature trends in NFL cities over the past 50 years. Not surprisingly, all of those cities have warmed over that time. Charlotte has warmed 1.3° F, and Denver has warmed 1.1°F. But there is a wide range in the warming trends across the league, with Phoenix warming 5.1°F since the first Super Bowl, and San Diego only warming 0.1°F. The San Francisco Bay Area, where this year’s game is being played, is very close to the middle, warming 2.5°F. These temperature changes are calculated based on the rate of change calculated over those 50 years.
