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

Agreed!

The long range forecast models aren't known for being terribly accurate. We should have a better idea of what's going on by Monday or so. :)

As soon as I step foot in Illinois it will rain. It might take a day, but it will rain.


Sir, your beatdown will take a day earlier if you even consider making that happen.

It's impossible to predict Chicago weather. The only way to know the weather in Chicago is when the weather is happening. XD!

I'm telling you all right now... 1600 Thursday. The rain will commence. If not right at that moment it will be within the proceeding 3 hours.

Considering how it's been around here lately, rain would not be surprising (currently forecast as a possibility Thu-Sun). As long as it doesn't flood...AGAIN...there should be no trouble. Just incorporate an umbrella into a prop, and hope that the recent rash of false alarms ends this year.

Of course, I write this as a frost advisory is in effect, so who the hell knows what may happen in the end.

That's Chicago weather for ya! Frost advisory today, beach weather later in the week, and follow that up with some T-Storms.

We turned our heater back on yesterday, but I plan on turning the A/C on Tuesday if it's going to be in the 80's like they are saying now.

Forecast:
Friday: RAIN
Saturday: RAIN
Sunday: RAIN

Despite it saying rain, keep in mind all days except sunday have a less than 50% chance. Chances are it will rain for 15 minutes and 75% of the con goers won't even know it happened

Just got an umbrella today to bring along just in case. The weather's been a bit chilly so rain doesn't seem to be much of a surprise.

Hopefully if it has to rain there will be periods of not rain where I can do an awesome photoshoot of my cosplay that is of a character who comes from a gloomy, rainy place. Silver lining...for me.

Bah, I don't trust Weather channel, they always screw up their forcasts. As long as the temps don't go above 80 I'll be good with that.

It looks like the bulk of any rain Thurs-Fri will be in central Illinois and Indiana.

The forecast models all say something different for rain chances on Saturday and Sunday... so hopefully nothing will happen. Looks like the humidity will be higher though, not looking forward to that. :thumbdown:

I use the "Great America Forecast System." Basically, pay attention to the weather each day. A good chunk of the time, whenever there's a spike or heavy drop in temperature, inclement weather of some kind will hit soon. (But not always.) I've seen storm clouds literally part when approaching Great America, miss it by a hair, and then converge again to slam the neighboring areas.

It seems like the highest percentages are on Friday during the day(60%) and all day Sunday(60% day and 95% night). I can't believe how hot it's going to be. High 70's and mid 80's are summer weather! :<

Well, we got some rain overnight here. (Northern, Indiana) but it's shaping up to be a nice day it looks like. Hope the above holds true and Indiana gets most of the rain instead of Chicago. :D
