Here's the weather for next week. It stops at Wednesday, but it is scheduled to change at any day.

So far its looking pretty good. We could hit the 80s. But like I said it may be subject to change. Fingers crossed!

If that is the pattern they are predicting so far, I'd say rain changes may be up on Saturday/Sunday.

Meh... too far out to still make accurate predictions. The last few ACens in May were nice in the afternoons, but Sundays always have some sort of severe weather (i.e. 2010 and 2011, all of the hail)

I am just hoping that it is not under 65. I have two summer cosplays and would be REALLY mad if it was too cold to happily wear them. Lol.

It better not be cold like last year. I had to wear my pajama pants under my dress, lucky I had the same color. I will be looking at the weather very closely. I wouldn't mind 70-80 degrees at least it wouldn't be too hot or too cold. Just perfect weather.

70-80 works for me, too. No rain or T-storms on Sunday, please--I gotta drive to the Twin Cities!

I hope it's 70-80 for the sake of my friends and my cosplay outifts. Short skirts don't go well with cold.

While I agree that it's still way too early to accurately predict the weather, according to this site, ACen weekend is looking a little damp and/or chilly... :(

Extended Forecast

Fingers crossed they are wrong (or else I will be very cold lol)!

Given how unpredictable the weather tends to be in the Chicagoland area, it'll be too soon to tell until probably early next week. At that point it'll be a little easier to guess how the temps and rain will spin out.

*Crosses fingers for something in the 60-70's* 80 is a bit too hot for my tastes with as much body heat as the crowds give off. As long as it isn't flooding like crazy or something like that though I'll make do!

I still stand solid on my Sat/Sun rain predict. Recent update has a 50% chance of TStorms on Wed now.

I checked the 10 Day forecast, and so far Friday is looking good.
Not super sunny, but at least it's dry and somewhat warm.

First rule of Chicago Cosplay: Have a costume for any temperature.

90 degrees= Kamina/Body Painted characters/Any fanservice character
70 degrees= Yusuke Urameshi/Various Samurai characters/catsuit characters
50 degrees= Pedobear/Hinata/That REALLY elaborate costume with the gown and elbow length gloves and buckles and giant headdress
30 degrees= ACen cancelled due to Chicago being a jerkwad

Proof that the forecast around here changes pretty much every day:

It'll be impossible to tell for sure until next week. All we can do is prepare accordingly and hope for the best!

Well, it's raining a bit here in Indiana right now. I hope maybe this can get it out of it's system in time for ACen. Weather Channel seems to think the rain chances are less than 50 percent all weekend...
