Weather for PAX Weekend

edited March 2010 in PAX Archive
I'm guessing everyone here is just as excited for PAX next weekend as I am. As you go into this next week you're probably thinking of what to pack. I just checked out the weather and it looks like there's a chance for rain next weekend (10% Friday and 30% Saturday). Also the temperature will be in the range of 45-50 for the weekend so if you plan on exploring the city more than just PAX then a light jacket might be in order (depending on temperature tolerance).

Look forward to seeing you all next weekend!

Edit: I'm going to try to update the post once a day (as the predictions get better).

Up to date weather as of 3/24 at 9:52 PM
Friday: 42, AM Showers (70% Chance of Rain)
Saturday: 40, Mostly Sunny (0% Chance of Rain)
Sunday: 53, Mostly Cloudy (0% Chance of Rain)

    We're still a week out on this forecast, so I wouldn't take precision stock in it, but we can reasonably assume something in that ballpark right now. Granted, I wouldn't mind too much if that forecast completely changes in the next few days, but I won't be holding my breath.

    Yeah I would really like the weather to be like it is this weekend. It's been BEAUTIFUL the past few days but I guess I can't have everything I want.

    You should try traveling around a bit. People say that everywhere that doesn't have a consistent tropical climate.

    Yeah, honestly, wait a few more days before even thinking about checking the weather, and even then take it with several grains of salt.

    A light jacket for 45-50 degrees? Lordy, I'm coming from Texas. I'll be in a shirt, sweater, jacket, gloves, hat... :lol:

    This week has been awesome.

    Hopefully next week pans out just the same. I love drinking/insert your favorite activity here in Boston when it's nice out.

    This is why we can't have nice things!

    45-50 and rain? Welcome to Seattle!


    Oh, wait...


    That's pretty much what I'm used to so it doesn't bother me. Though I do miss the weekend of PAX06 that was like 90 degrees...

    For those of us who live outside the US and have long since abandonned Imperial units, 50 Deg F= 10 Degrees C. In other words, it'll be a bit 'parky'.

    Be lucky PAX East wasn't last weekend, when most of the Boston area had some form of flooding after getting 7-9+ inches of rain over 72 hours.

    Best bet is check around Wed. That's probably close enough to get a good idea. Further out then that and it turns more into a crap shoot.

    Since this has posted next weekend has changed from rainy to sunny in 2 days. Its always best to check the weather 2-3 days out.

    Just bring a jacket and pants just in case guys. :)

    An umbrella wouldn't hurt either if you're the type to be prepared.

    Latest forecast is:

    Friday: 47, partly cloudy
    Saturday: 44, partly cloudy
    Sunday: 47, partly cloudy

    As long as there is no rain, it'll be good. We're still drying out from the torrential rain we got last week.

    The weather's about the same here right now. I can deal with 40s with a jacket or hoodie. Though 60 would be nicer.

    Yeah I knew the prediction would probably change but I just thought it'd be nice for people to be aware of what the forcast is since they're probably starting to think about packing. I'm also going to update the original post and try to keep it updated with the up to date forcast.

    Keep in mind also that the weather inside will be a constant temperature and always sunny. ;) Good to know the forecast for bar hopping and food runs though, thanks!

    I dunno...does the glow from screens and florescent lighting count as "sunny?" :mrgreen:

    Man... I cannot follow this conversation... stupid Imperial temperature systems...

    If I'm not mistaken, Boston has a similar but less harsh version of Montreal weather... Montreal has about a 70 degree discrepancy between its summer highs and its winter lows (celcius)... -35 to 35... in fahrenheit... that'd be... -31 F to 95 F... so... 126 degrees difference... wow.

    That being said... the Boston high is supposed to be about 5 (C) or 41 (F) on Friday (courtesy: The Weather Network) but at least sunny... so bring a coat! And showing up before 10:00 am will be silly... since waiting outside would suck.

    Boston weather is definitely different from Montreal. We do not often see days below 0F nor do we see it snow for days on end. When it was below 0 in Montreal it was in the 20s in Boston, that's a big difference. We also don't see too many days in the mid 90s.

    What he said.

    40s and 50s are perfect to me now. Anything over 60 has me a bit irritated.

    And to think, I've only been living in Seattle six months and was in Los Angeles before...

    I am planning on bringing my trenchcoat, scarf and gloves. Maybe a second pair of pants. But I'll have to play it by ear. All I know is one of the days (either Fri or Sat) I will be wearing my mini kilt. But it will be perfect for taking pictures outside.
