Weather Report: Precipitation Free In Philly

Posted by Gabe Hiatt on November 17, 2013 – 12:00 pm



The forecast in Philadelphia calls for a shower of boos and 100 percent chance of obnoxious verbiage in the bleachers.

At least the field should be dry. It shouldn’t be too cold either.

Check out the full weather report below.

Comfortable Weather All Around Tonight

For those of you coming clad in burgundy and gold tonight, leave behind that Redskins rain jacket as there will be no need for it.

There is almost a zero percent chance of rain tonight but 100 percent chance that FedExField will be rocking the moment Robert Griffin III is introduced before the game.

Even with the sun setting sometime during the early stages of the first quarter, glares will be a complete non-factor as cloud cover will remain persistent throughout the evening.

Temperatures will be a comfortable mid-70’s and winds will stay steady around 6 mph all game long .

Here’s a complete forecast for tonight’s game courtesy of Weather.com:

VIDEO: Redskins-Eagles Weather Update

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 16, 2012 – 10:02 am

For mid-November, Sunday’s game between the Washington Redskins and the Philadelphia Eagles won’t be too bad for those braving the elements at FedExField.

Temperatures are expected to hover in the mid-to-upper 40s throughout the morning and up to kickoff, when it could hit as high as 50 degrees.

The sun could even make an appearance throughout the day, though skies are expected to be partly cloudy.

VIDEO: Redskins-Panthers Weather Update

Posted by Andrew Walker on November 1, 2012 – 4:34 pm

Redskins fans, break out the jackets. Sunday’s going to be a chilly one.

Fortunately, however, it looks like the rain will stay away — something that hasn’t exactly been a theme here lately on the East Coast.

You’ll be looking at about 38 degrees at 10 a.m. at FedExField as the Homecoming festivities — such as the parade — start to get underway. That temperature will rise to about 45 degrees by kickoff at 1 p.m., and we’ll all be sweating by the game’s end, when temperatures are expected to approach 50 degrees.

Rainy Monday Brings First OTA Indoors

Posted by Andrew Walker on May 22, 2012 – 11:08 am

A steady, annoying drizzle was the weather theme at Redskins Park Monday morning, so head coach Mike Shanahan decided to bring the team’s first round of organized team activities inside.

It was the first time Shanahan has been afforded that luxury. The team’s brand new indoor training facility was just recently completed, and its purpose is ideal for days like Monday.

“Perfect timing, eh?” second-year outside linebacker Ryan Kerrigan said after Monday’s activities. “This is what we built it for, for days like this when the weather’s not cooperative.”

Hail! And Atmospheric Miscommunication

Posted by Brian Tinsman on December 9, 2011 – 11:16 am

I’m no meteorologist (I just play one on gameday), but since the beginning of the season it has been gorgeous on most Tuesday days off, and it has rained Redskins and Cowboys on almost every Wednesday.

As a fan of fair weather (not a fair-weather fan), it would be comically predictable if it weren’t so depressingly predictable.

On Wednesday, Dec. 7, Ashburn, Va. was hit by 3.1 inches of rain, which is approximately 31-times the historical average for that date.  As a result, the Redskins were forced to practice off-site, which was expressed to players and coaches upon their arrival, early that morning.

In this week’s edition of Ben Ceccareli’s Hail! comic, he ponders the possibility of players hearing the news wrong: Read more »

Posted by Brian Tinsman on August 27, 2011 – 10:42 am

As the mid-Atlantic braces for Hurricane Irene, the players are preparing for the storm as well.  After yesterday’s day off, it’s back to business today, but players are keeping an eye on the gathering storm clouds.

Via Twitter, we have a report from hesitant meteorologist Brandyn Thompson:

Live on location, we have DeJon Gomes:

We have television critic, Anthony Armstrong:

We have the pessimist, Evan Royster:

We have the hopeful optimist, Donte Stallworth:

And we have Adam Carriker with the question that everyone wants to know:

There are no heroes today, and everyone should take every precaution necessary to stay safe.  For complete storm coverage, please follow your local news source or weather.com.  Be safe and good luck Redskins Nation.

Two Different Views On Hurricanes

Posted by Matt Terl on September 10, 2009 – 11:50 am

When Tropical Depression ERIKA was getting going a week or so back, my wife — also Erika, although not in all caps — was actually a little excited. And when ERIKA fizzled out near Puerto Rico, Erika was a tiny bit disappointed. So when I read yesterday that Hurricane FRED had grown to a Category 3 storm, I thought Fred Smoot might be slightly entertained and enjoy the opportunity to go on a weather-related rant.


“Y’know, that’s not good,” Smoot said. “I hate for a storm to be named after me.”

Mississippian Smoot does not view hurricanes as a reason for excitement. At all.

“I hope FRED goes down as one of the weakest hurricanes ever,” he said. “That’s nothing that I wanna be famous for.”

Smoot walked away shaking his head, then shouted back, “I hope I fizzle out over Old Creek Road.”

Santana Moss, meanwhile, was much more enthused about a totally different kind of Hurricane. Read more »
