The weather prediction says

Morgens einige Nebenfelder, sonst setzt sich tagsüber überall die Sonne durch.

What does "Nebenfelder" mean? I can't find it in the dictionary, and since "neben" means "next to" and "Feld" means "field", I cannot guess a meaning that makes sense either.

@hellcode Thanks. The sentence is from the Süddeutsche Zeitung, and it is indeed a misprint on their part. –  boaten Aug 6 at 19:56

Besides the possibility of a typo, Nebenfeld means area of secondary interest, In contrast to Hauptfeld, which is the area of main interest or activity.

Hauptfeld: Primary field
Nebenfeld: Secondary field
