Weather Policy

If the weather looks questionable, what do we do?

Flag plays on City of Eagan fields and therefore we must follow their policy.
If the weather is questionable, you can call the sports hotline at 651-675-5566 to get updates on field status. You can also sign up for email and text alerts or check the website [link].

Air Quality and Extreme Heat

For air quality and extreme heat, we will adhere to the MHSL's weather policy.  Leveraging the MSHL's extreme weather policy will assist us in making the decision to cancel games or practices in cases of poor air quality or extreme weather conditions. 

This link will bring you to the detailed weather policy for the Minnesota High School League.

Extreme Heat
Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WGBT) measurement will be used to decide to cancel games/practices due to extreme heat.   
What is WBGT? Wet Bulb Globe Temperature (WBGT) is a measure of the heat stress in direct sunlight, which takes into account: temperature, humidity, wind speed, sun angle and cloud cover (solar radiation). This differs from the heat index, which takes into consideration temperature and humidity and is calculated for shady areas. 
The WBGT is used by the Minnesota State High School League (MSHSL) and it is considered the gold standard for assessing heat stress during physical activity.
 
*When WBGT  > 87.1 Practices/Games Cancelled
Poor Air Quality Levels
  • Any athlete or team personnel who develops cough, chest tightness, wheezing, or shortness of breath should not exercise outside when the air quality is bad. 
  • Athletes with asthma should move indoors for an AQI of 100 or above. 
  • Moving indoors when the AQI is above 150 is recommended.  
  • When the AQI is greater than 200, all outdoor activities should be moved indoors, postponed, or cancelled. 
*Games/Practices Cancelled with AQI > 150.
