Warm Weather to Greet Fans for First NFL Game of Season at Wembley

The Miami Dolphins and Oakland Raiders will face off in London on Sunday with nice playing conditions.

For the weekend in London, England, the weather will be cooperating. Those celebrating and tailgating before the 6 p.m. GMT (1 p.m. EDT) game will continue to see dry conditions with mainly cloudy skies.

However, temperatures in the afternoon will be higher than what is normal for this time of year in London. Usually the afternoon high at the end of September is in the lower 60s F (near 16 C).

The high Sunday afternoon is expected in the lower 70s F (around 21 C), with the kick-off temperature just a few degrees lower. This means that, although American football usually signifies the start of fall, it will not feel like that for Sunday's game.

Both teams are used to playing in warm temperatures, with both Miami and Oakland typically having warm conditions on their home turf.

Oakland will be looking for their first win of the season in London, while Miami tries to bring their record up to 2-2.

The match-up between the Dolphins and Raiders is the first of the NFL's International series for the 2014-2015 season. The next match-up outside of the United States will be on Oct. 26, when the Atlanta Falcons and Detroit Lions battle. The last of the international series in 2014 will be on Nov. 9 between the Dallas Cowboys and the Jacksonville Jaguars. All of these games will be played in Wembley Stadium in London.
