Blue-White Weather History

Weather Headlines
The Blue-White Game has been a tradition for many decades, and with its rich history, comes all types of weather.
 
At the first Blue-White Game on May 5, 1951, the fans dealt with wind and rain, but the high temperature reached 64 degrees. Rain seems to be a theme for Blue-White Games, it has rained for 10 out of the last 19 held.  It rained so much in 2011, that the game was cancelled at halftime because there was a thunderstorm in the vicinity and almost an inch of rain had fallen. 
 
Not only have fans endured rain, but even cold and snow! In 2013, the carnival was cancelled when there was wind gusts up to 37 mph and snow was falling. There was also snowfall in 2005. 
 
April can have huge temperature swings, which means in the past 19 years,  there have been bitter cold games, and also scorching hot ones too! The coldest game was in 2013 when the high temperatures only reached 45 degrees. The warmest game was in 2009 when the high temperature that day reached 86 degrees.  
 
No matter the weather, the Blue-White Game always brings people togther for a fun time while watching some football in the spring.
