Predict Your Weather

We used this little tool on weatherunderground's website to gauge pretty accurately what the weather would be like for this past Sat.'s wedding.

While everyone, including me, was shivering Friday during rehearsals in 40 degree temps & rain, & on Sat. AM there was showers and clouds, my fiance (now husband) was sure there would be no rain& sunny skies. & sure enough by early afternoon, the clouds had broken, the sun came out, & the temps rose to ideal levels. It was as he had called it.

His secret? Playing the odds based on 14 years of data for our location here:

So enter your town & dates. Then see the % for temps, precipitation, & play the probabilities! HERE >>> http://www.wunderground.com/tripplanner/index.asp

    Whoo-hooo! Warm (60-75 degrees) and 83% chance it will NOT rain (great since it's an outdoor wedding!)

    For mine it could be almost 100 degrees with some possible rain. But it says no clouds!? I guess we could be in for some sun showers! Which wouldn't bother me considering it will be almost 100!

    I used a similar tool on The Weather Channel website, but I think this one gives much more information. Thanks for sharing!
