Bring a raincoat, everyone, because they're saying it might be raaaaaaaaaai-nee! I just checked the long-range forecast.

Is this the forecast you're referring to?

Yes.

Remember, there's only 2 kinds of Roads Scholars: Those who have Scholared in the rain, and those who will.

So far out I don't even worry about it.

I'll usually start paying attention to the weather forecast a few days out.  It still may not be a bad idea for some of the attendees to think ahead by remembering to pack a jacket or umbrella, since some of us are traveling from far distances.

The forecast might be a worst-case scenario, so I wouldn't urge anyone to cancel their trip just because of it. But personally, I just assume it's correct, since I'm used to rain.

Now they're saying cloudy with a high of 52 and a low of 44. There's a small chance of rain, but it looks like it won't be the washout that they had been predicting.

Did we really expect every roadmeet in the Midwest at this time of year to be perfectly dry? We actually lucked out at the Ashland meet.

Seems awfully early to have such accurate forecasts 10-14 days in advance.

Did we really expect every roadmeet in the Midwest at this time of year to be perfectly dry? We actually lucked out at the Ashland meet.

We had some rain at Pikeville last fall. Chattanooga was a washout. The Columbus meet about 10 years ago, which I didn't attend, had some pretty heavy thunderstorms. And the Monticello, NY meet last March had snowfall.

Tim: A weather forecaster can't accurately predict the weather for the next day in this part of the country, and they certainly can't predict it a week and a half away.  I put about as much faith in long term forecasts that I put faith in the Republican Party doing something good for a change.

FIFY.  They're all alike, R or D.

Speaking as a meteorologist, a reasonably accurate forecast can be made up to 5 days out.  Beyond about 5 days, there are too many variables involved and it gets too subjective.

Now they say it's a 0% chance of rain. I guess that doesn't mean much when it's still 9 days away.

Sometimes it can be correctly predicted.  Many times, however, the forecasters' predictions are flat out wrong.  Meteorology is not an exact science.

Actually if you want to bring your silly signs, bring them, but just don't take a picture with me and the sign both in it or I will confiscate your camera and destroy your picture.
Why do you dislike the sign so much?

I don't even dislike the sign, I just don't want my picture taken with it.

I have a "Send Help" sign from a meet (King of Prussia PA, or damn near it?) eons ago.  I plan to bring it along. 

Does Jeremy have a sense of humor (I'm pretty sure he does)?  If so, he will pose with me and the sign for a pic.

He's welcome to scowl at the camera.  I'll probably be grinning, but if Jeremy wants me to, I'll scowl along with him.

I'm not going to eat because of medical reasons.  I will, however, drink a Coke.

WOW! Shaping up to be a HUGE turn out! Too bad my mini van will be full of small toy cars, I will have to ride with someone on the tour. So far weather is starting to look good for Saturday, partly cloudy and 60 :-)

The weather forecast is shaping to be partly cloudy with High of 59 and Low of 41.  Jason you can ride with me during the tour itself - riding shotgun.  I still got room in my vehicle for 2 more - I got 2 vans as well but they're no fun shooting road photos from the backseat.

I'm arriving in St. Louis mighty early, and I plan on doing a little walking tour around the area. I designed my walking tour so it doesn't conflict with the parade or the marathon.
