NFL Weather Report and Forecast Week 4: Which Games Could Mother Nature Impact?

What is the latest Week 4 weather report, and how might it impact the games taking place on Sunday and Monday?

Last week, eyes were on the NFL Weather Report, with some adverse forecasts expected. However, will that be the case again this week, or does the weather look much more serene for Week 4? Let’s look at the latest forecasts from around the NFL and the fantasy impacts of those forecasts.

All times listed are Eastern Time zone. Forecasts for Week 4 are supplied by reports from the National Weather Service (Met Office for London Weather).

The weather forecast is correct as of 8:00 a.m. ET Sunday and will be updated as needed.

Week 4 NFL Weather Report Fantasy Impact

Atlanta Falcons at Indianapolis Colts | Sunday, 9:30 a.m.

  • Expected Temperature: Low-70s
  • Showers: <5% chance at kickoff
  • Wind: 11 mph southwesterly, with gusts up to 21 mph

Despite what you may have heard about the London weather, it does not appear like it will impact the first International Series game of 2023. Even the wind is not an issue in Wembley Stadium, which is relatively contained despite not having a roof.

From a fantasy perspective, there should be no major concerns here. The weather is more than pleasant for early October in the UK, and there are no reasons for extra concerns around your fantasy options. Maybe the London air can even fix the Desmond Ridder to Drake London connection!

Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills | Sunday, 1 p.m.

  • Expected Temperature: Mid-70s
  • Showers: <5% chance at kickoff
  • Wind: 6 mph westerly

In what should be a shootout in Buffalo, we simply could not ask for better weather. The temperature will be comfortable, the rain should stay away, and the wind is non-existent. This game has the making of an explosion of points, and fantasy managers should have no hesitation in rolling with their usual options, at least based on the weather forecast.

Minnesota Vikings at Carolina Panthers | Sunday, 1 p.m.

  • Expected Temperature: High-70s
  • Showers: <5% chance at kickoff
  • Wind: 9 mph northeasterly

This is another game where the weather should not be a factor. The temperature, low winds, and lack of rain are all fantasy-friendly situations, so there should be no concerns here. Roll with your normal fantasy options here and show no hesitation based on the latest weather report for Charlotte.

Denver Broncos at Chicago Bears | Sunday, 1 p.m.

  • Expected Temperature: Mid-70s
  • Showers: <5% chance at kickoff
  • Wind: 6 mph easterly

Sometimes, Soldier Field can be a weather nightmare for fantasy football, but that is not the case in Week 4. The wind is negligible, there is little risk of rain, and the temperature is comfortable. Now, how many of these players you are brave enough to start based on what we have seen so far is a different matter.

Baltimore Ravens at Cleveland Browns | Sunday, 1 p.m.

  • Expected Temperature: Mid-60s
  • Showers: <5% chance at kickoff
  • Wind: 3 mph northerly

The story of the NFL weather report doesn’t look a lot different in Cleveland. Comfortable temperatures, very little chance of rain, and little or no wind.

From a fantasy perspective, the biggest concern is the uncertainty surrounding Deshaun Watson, and fortunately, the weather will not make those concerns any deeper.

Washington Commanders at Philadelphia Eagles | Sunday, 1 p.m.

  • Expected Temperature: Mid-70s
  • Showers: <5% chance at kickoff
  • Wind: 10 mph northerly

Once again, there is no weather concern in Lincoln Financial Field, where the Philadelphia Eagles will look to get to 4-0. Everything we have said above applies here, and things are normal from a fantasy perspective.

Cincinnati Bengals at Tennessee Titans | Sunday, 1 p.m.

  • Expected Temperature: Low-80s
  • Showers: <5% chance
  • Wind: 5 mph easterly

Things don’t get any worse when we venture over to Nashville to examine the weather there. The entire 1 p.m. ET slate looks extremely comfortable with the weather forecast and should make decisions much easier for fantasy managers. This game has some interesting fantasy options. The weather will hopefully not impact them.

Arizona Cardinals at San Francisco 49ers | Sunday, 4:25 p.m.

  • Expected Temperature: Low-70s
  • Showers: <10% chance at kickoff
  • Wind: 9 mph northwesterly

We may have moved into the afternoon slate, but the weather is not different at all. This is another game where the fantasy options involved should not be impacted.

Kansas City Chiefs at New York Jets | Sunday, 8:20 p.m.

  • Expected Temperature: High-60s
  • Showers: <10% chance at kickoff
  • Wind: 6 mph northerly

The message about the weather all day Sunday hasn’t changed, and it will be no different in MetLife Stadium to close out the day.

It does not look like we will be getting a repeat of the rainstorms that we saw on Sunday Night Football in Week 1. The fantasy decisions in this game are fascinating on the New York Jets side, but fortunately, the weather will not make that any tougher.

Seattle Seahawks at New York Giants | Monday, 8:15 p.m.

  • Expected Temperature: High-60s
  • Showers: <10% chance at kickoff
  • Wind: 6 mph northeasterly

We have a clean sweep of good weather forecast for this week’s games. Monday Night Football at MetLife Stadium looks to be a comfortable and calm evening to round out the week. While some weather can make an NFL weekend more interesting, it can also be a frustration for fantasy managers. Fortunately, we will not have to deal with that this weekend.
