Ahh, nice 'n muggy 'n humid. I can deal with hot temperatures, but the humidity just kills me. I hope the humidity at least goes away for next week and the temps remain cool and slightly breezy.


Me too. Thats my kind of weather. Im staying at the embassy so if I do have to walk to the hotel it wont be a cold one. Walking to the hotel in the cold makes it feel like you have a long way to go lol.

Nice 60 degree weather would be good, as my long Doctor Who overcoat would absolutely roast me in warm weather.

I hope that it isn't too hot as it is today. I can't stand anything above the 60s ;A; ESPECIALLY in cosplay. It'll be flashback to soycon where everything was hot, sweaty and nasty eww.
I hate the heat so much lol.

I like it best when the temp is between 70 and 82, but I won't complain about heat until it's hotter than 90 and the humidity is absolutely ridiculous.

I'm California-born like my mother (she grew up there as well) - I love mild weather, as well as warm. However, I can't stand humidity. That's what kills people - if it's 90 degrees outside with little to no humidity, it's actually not bad at all. But once that stuff spikes, you realize why they say it's marshland around here. Great America is especially awful on those days. *shudder* Give me dry heat any day, and I'll be satisfied.

Seeing as how one of my cosplays is essentially beach wear, if we have weather like today and yesterday during ACen, it'd be 100% ok in my book. Besides, this heat is my dream weather. I really need to move south.

bleh, was 86 and humid yesterday. I certainly hope it cools down some. Weather.com's 10 day outlook says mid-60's, which would be kinda nice for me (black blazer + wool vest = i fry in hot weather). additionally, i think a little cloud cover might be nice from the perspective of photographers, because when it gets really sunny out people tend to squint.

I want it to stay hot than rain again! I wear a lot of clothes for America but I can just wing it than deal with something wet dripping on me and I can't do anything for photo shots x.x;

Last year was kinda cold, then hot, then cold again.

Yesterday was too hot. It was 91 degrees in May....MAY! I tried to sleep last night but the humidity was keeping my awake and I had trouble breathing. Thankfully I hope to have some new windows installed so I can get a nice breeze. I hope we dont get into the 90s for ACen.

I think the weather will be catastrophic.

According to Harold Camping of Family Radio (a Christian organization) ((who also previously foretold that the world would end between September 4th and September 27th 1994)) the end of the world, or the second coming of Christ, starts on May 21st 2011. So temperature wise I think the weather will be a swarm of locusts... that sounds like a good prediction.

THIS IS THE THREAD FOR ME. *tunes in*
I earlier(months ago) made a wish for rain[OR SNOW, 'CAUSE THAT'D BE EPIC IN LATE MAY], but because of the amount of cosplays that don't like rain, hopefully it's not too late to change. I do want it to be cool, though.

I doubt the end of the world will happen anytime soon. Why a random day like 5/21/11? If this in fact true, pray for reincarnation people.

Ah yes, the Rapture. It would prove quite, ah, interesting if that should come to pass. I'm pretty certain I wouldn't be among the vanishing folks!

10-day forecast is calling for scattered showers on Thursday, showers on Friday. I don't usually trust the 10-day forecasts though, especially with how wonky the weather's been thus far. I'd be more inclined to trust it once we're a day or three out.

Weather.Com said sun on Thursday, showers on Friday (but only 30% precipitation...), but it's still too early to tell. Still, I'm hoping for breezy, partly cloudy, with rain either early in the morning or late at night if it has to fall at all.

Well, if the weather up to the con (aka the Monday-Wednesday before) is any sign, so far it's looking nice.

But if it does rain, carry an umbrella with you just in case. You never know when it may come in handy. XD
