So what's your best guess for the weather this year. I recall last year was so so in the weather and wished it had been a tad warmer. so far it's in the high sixtys for the week before but that's subject to change. Does anyone have a speculation for what the weather may or may not be like? And do you have a plan if it's too cold to hang out outside?

well chicago weather is a crazy women, one day it will be 20 degree and the next day it be a high of 60 and no clouds in the sky.

it really depand on how mush street cloths are you going to bring or how mush room you have if your bringing cosplays, game systems or hygienic care (lawl). but whereing pants in a avarge warm in may for chicago isn't going to be the death of you, it bringing a jacket. i say go ahead better to be safe then sorry.

i am hoping for high 60's and low 70's so a hoodie or light jacket will do.

Sounds like the end of the planet, good thing i'm not the main character and there won't be a big memorial, i dont think i'd be able to handle upsetting that many people in the afterlife!

Chicago is a very fickle lady, she is... so I predict a mix of warm AND cold. Since recently it has been a mix of rain/cold and warm/cloudless weather...

Hopefully the mid-sixties, seventies at most. Don't want to burn up in cosplay now do I?

Either this or the Zombie Apolcalypse breaks out during the weekend :lol:

Old Farmers Almanac says:
May 18-20: Showers, then sunny, warm
May 21-26: Sunny, cool

Also calls for below average temps and precipitation for all of May.

So let's see if this forecast is right or not :P

I remember wearing a thick sweater while waiting to get into the Soap Bubble, I was the heater for our group. Heck I had it on me at all times but at least there was no rain and some sun. I'm hoping for upper 60's to lower 70's with the nights ranging from the lower 50's. It would be shocking if we had another 80 degree day and it lasted all of Acen weekend. :thumbup:

I expect it to be in the 70's & mostly sunny. Possible rain one day out of the weekend, though it just may be one day of over cast. Meaning mostly cloudy. Also I expect it to drop to the low to mid 60"s at night.

The averages for those dates in past May months has been roughly in the upper 60s - but given how wonky this year has been (and still is), it's hard to say. I'd say be like George Carlin and pray to the sun; MAYBE we'll get some really nice weather this year. :3

It's going to rain like it has every ACen since like 06. I hope it's bright and sunshiney though. It doesn't have to be hot or anything, just sunny days.

It usually rains at night. Most people don't notice it. I just remember every year that I've been staying in the hotels, I've looked out the window at some ungodly time and noticed rain.

There was rain one Acen... I forget which but it's rained at least once since 07. Actually Friday of 07 was nice and cold, but since I was cosplaying Hermione that day I was fine :D

Chicago is always like this, I never actually put the winter gear fully away until late June because you never know when you'll get frost (srsly I got a frost advisory come up in Weatherbug today). So always prepare with LAYERS LAYERS LAYERS. I'm such a Chicagoan, I plan on ways to add warm layers to costumes. Like, I can put warmer clothes on under my Ghostbusters jumpsuit, or just wear my Fourth Doctor costume, if it gets cold. I can switch to my Femme!Jamie costume if it gets warm. I'm prepared for whatever Chicago dishes out!!
