  • A half-inch of rain is expected for Sunday's NFC Championship Game at Candlestick Park.

Fans headed to Sunday’s game should pack a poncho and an extra sweater to ensure that wet weather doesn’t dampen their experience.

The first major winter storm will arrive this weekend, drenching the region, National Weather Service forecaster Steve Anderson said.

The brunt of the storm should arrive Friday night, bringing 1 to 2 inches of rain. A short reprieve is expected Saturday afternoon.

On game day, about a half-inch of rain is expected, with showers beginning in the afternoon and continuing into the evening.

Temperatures will remain steady through the weekend, with highs in the 50s and lows around 40. The rain should let up Monday.
