EDISON - Football fans gathering for tonight's matchup between the defending champion New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys should expect muggy conditions at MetLife Stadium.

News 12 New Jersey Meteorologist Dave Curren says temperatures will hover around a muggy and humid 79 degrees across much of the Garden State.

Curren says the southern part of the state will see very heavy rains this evening, with as much as 3 inches of rain already falling in parts of Ocean County.

Tonight should be partly cloudy with temperatures in the 60s.
