Forecast Clear for Obama Inauguration
If you are planning on heading to DC this weekend for the weekend of inaugural events you may be checking the weather channel more than you check your email.
Seven days out, forecasters are expecting temperatures in the 30s ( 1-2 degrees celsius) with sunny, or partly sunny skies. Though this is not shorts and t-shirt weather, it certainly could be worse. Plus, with the estimated 3-4 million extra visitors to our nation's capital, won't some sort of collective body heat emitted increase the overall temperature by a few degrees?
So far, the forecast looks okay: Most agencies are calling for sunny weather, or partly so, with highs in the 30s.
But there is a weather system way out in the northern Pacific Ocean, according to AccuWeather, which might or might not come this way Monday and might or might not bring snow. "A lot of things could happen between now and then," senior meteorologist Tom Kines said.
