As of right now, the forecast for Sunday in Inglewood is partly cloudy with a high of 78 degrees and no rain in sight. There is expected to be a light breeze out of the southwest and around 25% humidity. The sun will set at 5:36 PM local (PST) time, roughly two hours after the game kicks off.
Southern California is known for its mild winters, dry and generally pleasant year-round weather. Thought of as one of the most desirable climates in the nation, it won’t disappoint this week with warm temps and almost no chance of precipitation.
It may be indoors but that hasn’t stopped weather from affecting a game in the past. SoFi Stadium has a roof but the stadium is classified as open-air due to the north side being open on the upper deck. In October, the Monday Night Football game between the Raiders and Chargers was delayed due to lightning strikes in the area, to the confusion of viewers and those at the stadium alike. Then Raiders head coach Jon Gruden when asked about the game delay:
“I’ve never had an indoor stadium with a lightning delay. This is a bizarre night for all of us.”
Have the Teams Been Successful Indoors?
The Bengals were 3-0 in indoor games this season, covering the spread in all three as well. While it took overtime to beat the Vikings early in the year, Cincy won its other two “domed” games by large margins, beating the Raiders and Lions by double digits. The Rams were 11-3 in games under a roof this season, with seven of the wins (two postseason games) and all three losses coming at home. They also triumphed over Arizona, Minnesota, Houston and Indianapolis during the regular season.

Will Weather Affect Players?
No. Despite the open design of SoFi, this is in essence, an indoor game. Although, that may not stop reporters from asking about it. It wouldn't be the first time.
