It’s the Saturday following college football conference championship weekend, which means it’s time for this year’s edition of the annual Army vs. Navy game.

Because it’s traditionally played so late in the season Army vs. Navy is no stranger to poor weather, and that’s exactly what players and coaches appear to be facing again on Saturday afternoon.

Let’s take a detailed look at the latest Army vs. Navy weather forecast, which includes the potential for rain and wind at MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey, and how it could impact Saturday afternoon’s game.

Army vs. Navy Weather Forecast

According to the National Weather Service, today’s Army vs. Navy matchup should dodge too much rain, though light precipitation could hit East Rutherford throughout the afternoon on Saturday.

However, it’s the wind that should have the bigger impact at MetLife Stadium.

Breezes of 14-16 mph are expected to blow throughout today’s game, with must stronger gusts possible as well.

In fact, the area is under wind advisory starting at 3 p.m. ET, which is also the scheduled kickoff time for Army vs. Navy, that suggests gusts could touch 50 mph on Saturday afternoon.

As is typically the case, the Army vs. Navy over/under has dropped from 36.5 to 35 (click here for the latest college football odds) likely based on the “service academy under” trend, though the updated East Rutherford weather forecast won’t make the passing and kicking games any easier at MetLife Stadium.
