Bowl Travel and Game Weather

Military Bowl and Weekend Weather

Here’s a fun exercise the kids can do to keep their minds sharp while enjoying the Herd’s Military Bowl experience.

Grab an atlas or do a “lat lon USA map” search on the web. Now hone in on Huntington and trace your way eastward along the 38th parallel and walla! You end up in Annapolis Maryland.

In fact a cartographer will tell you the distance both cities are from say the Equator or Tropic of Cancer is within a few miles. Technically, Annapolis is at 38deg 58min of north latitude while Huntington is at 38deg 42min but that difference of 18 minutes spatially represents only a few miles.

I bring this up since the weather at both football stadiums (Edwards and Navy-Marine Corp) will be identical on Friday.

More on the game day forecast in a bit. First travel weather looks to be cold and dry for Herd fans making the Friday drive. The early morning frost here at home won't melt away until Herd fans are well on their way.

Snow is on the ground from Morgantown east to Frostburg but I-79,I-68 look to be dry as you pass through the mountains.

With A westerly wind blowing from Marshall to the Naval Academy the early morning frosty chill (20-25 degrees) will give way to a sunshiny day. Highs will crest near 45 with the wind blowing steadily at 10-20 miles per hour all day long.

So much like at the Joan, if your seat at the home of the Middies is on the shaded side of the stadium, you will feel chilly all day and night long.

Speaking of night, the game will end in darkness with temperatures in the 30s.
