Perfect weather for the NRL Grand Final

Ben McBurney, Sunday September 30, 2012 - 11:53 EST

Unlike the AFL Grand Final yesterday, the weather for the NRL Grand Final today against the Bulldogs and Storm is looking much calmer.

It is a sunny and mild day across Sydney, although it may feel a bit chilly in the wind. Not much is expected to change by this evening, with the clear conditions expected to persist for the rest of the day.

By the time of kickoff at 5:15pm the temperature should be around 17 degrees, although it will drop further at sundown. This may make it feel a bit chilly, so it would be wise to pack an extra layer. Winds will be light to moderate at the start of the match and ease into the evening.

The good weather sets the tone for what should be an exciting clash, with both teams sitting on top of the ladder.
