Tribune scribe Ed Schoenfeld offered a report from a local meteorologist regarding the weather conditions teams could expect at the proposed site of a stadium in Oakland. The meteorologist, E. P. Norwood of the United States Weather Bureau, said a football team playing a day game at the stadium could expect calm winds or light breezes roughly 80% of the time. September and October game dates were likely to be dry, with only a handful of days of rain in November and December. High winds would be even less likely in the evenings, though rainfall was expected to be about the same as during the daytime.
