NFL Week 5: Rain to greet fans in Miami; Unseasonable warmth to unfold in Northeast

Many games in Week 4 of the NFL season were played in conditions typical for autumn. However, many games scheduled for the fifth week of the season will be played in temperatures slightly warmer than average.

Most of this weekend's outdoor games will take place under the backdrop of sunny and dry conditions, but fans in Miami, Philadelphia and Chicago may want to come to the game prepared for rain.

Here is a look at the weather conditions for the Sunday and Monday night NFL games during Week 5:
