American Football Returns to London Amid Mild Spell

The second of three scheduled NFL Games set to take place in London this year will be played on Sunday amid a mild stretch of weather.

Kick-off will occur at 9:30 a.m. EDT, which is 2:30 p.m. local time in London. The game will feature the Detroit Lions against the Atlanta Falcons.

The good news for the football fans in London is that the weather will have no negative impacts on the game or for outdoor activities the day of the game.

High pressure over central and eastern Europe will force the storm track across northern parts of the United Kingdom where scattered showers are expected throughout the weekend.

Across southern England, including the London area, dry weather will prevail with a mixture of clouds and sunshine. Winds will be gusty at times from the southwest.

A high of 16 C (lower 60s F) is expected in London on Sunday. Typical in late October, temperatures are held to near 13 C (55 F).

The final game to take place in London this year will occur on Nov. 9 when Jacksonville takes on Dallas.
