Grey Cup set for seasonal conditions in Winnipeg: cold but no deep freeze

November 28, 2015 - 10:07 AM

WINNIPEG - The forecast calls for minus-six Celsius for kickoff of the 103rd Grey Grey.

That's about average for Winnipeg in late November. It will be cold but not deep freeze cold.

The Weather Network says it will feel like minus-11 but there is only a 10 per cent chance of precipitation for the championship game between the Edmonton Eskimos and Ottawa Redblacks.

The forecast also calls for 12 k.p.h. wind.

The two teams practised under bright sunshine Saturday at Investors Group Field. It was minus-nine in the break between the two workouts.

Kickoff is slated for 6:38 p.m. ET Sunday.

The 1991 Grey Cup in Winnipeg is one of the coldest on record with a game-time temperature of minus-17.
