The previous high temperature for Feb. 2 was 72 degrees, according to MID.

Patchy morning fog will clear to warm temperatures for Super Bowl Sunday, with a high of 70 expected, according to the National Weather Service. It should be perfect for a game of two-hand touch before the big game kicks off.
