Its going to be a wet one at Candlestick Park in San Fransisco, CA Sunday night when the New York Giants visit the San Fransisco 49ers in the 2012 NFL Championship game (6:30 p.m. ET on FOX).

That forecast is not good for the Candlestick Park field, which is currently very soggy and could be a mess came game time.

"Department of Public Works crews in San Francisco on Saturday were sprucing up neighborhoods around Candlestick Park and drying out the parking lots as they prepared for thousands of fans and visitors to descend on the area for Sunday’s NFC championship game between the San Francisco 49ers and the New York Giants," says a report by CBS 5 Saturday night.

"After Friday’s storm, flood waters filled the parking lots at Candlestick Park. Crews were busy pumping the water out all day Saturday to make sure the lots were dry in time for Sunday’s big game."

Temperatures in San Fransisco will be as high as 53, while as low as 43.
