We don't need a weatherman to tell us it will be cold in East Rutherford, N.J., in February. But we do need a weatherman to give us a little history lesson.

We had the guys at Weather2000.com, a weather forecasting service, do a little digging into temperature and precipitation history of the three potential Super Bowl XLVIII dates at the new Meadowlands in 2014.

Here's what they came up with. (Pre = precipitation; Depth = amount of snow of ground that morning; all measured in inches)
