USA Today Sports

The only thing that looks to dampen the excitement of the NFL Conference Championship games Sunday is the weather. Both games are expected to be hampered by high winds and large amounts of rain.

Heavy rain amounting to 20-35 millimeters is expected to fall on Saturday in Seattle. Rain is expected to let up Sunday, but light precipitation is expected throughout the day. 

Winds are expected to be blowing hard at CenturyLink Field as well, blowing between 13-16 miles per hour towards the south endzone throughout the game.

Gillette Stadium will be less windy than its Northwestern counterpart, but rain is expected to be heavier for gametime. 

Rain is expected to start in the early afternoon in Foxbouough and fall non-stop through the AFC title game. Rainfall is expected to amount to between 20-30 mm with winds gusting upwards of 5 mph.
