The forecast for Sunday's Green Bay Packers game at Lambeau Field is...hot. So hot, in fact, that it could be the hottest game ever at Lambeau Field.

Records show the last time temperatures for a regular season game at Lambeau soared into the 80s was October 6, 1963 when the mercury reached 84 degrees. 

NBC26 meteorologist Cameron Moreland said temps could reach 87 degrees Sunday.

Packers coach Mike McCarthy doesn't expect the weather to be a factor for in the game. 

However, the Green Bay Metro Fire Department is encouraging Packers fans to be alert to possible heat-related illnesses.

Common symptoms of those are:

  • Dizziness
  • Fainting
  • Fatigue
  • Headache
  • Muscle Cramps
  • Nausea
  • Confusion
  • Rapid Heartbeat

Crews are encouraging fans to drink plenty of non-caffeinated and non-alcoholic drinks. You should also wear loose fitting, lighter colored clothing and seek shade whenever you can.

Wear sunscreen and use fans or ice towels.

If you feel ill at all, seek medical attention immediately.
