Can you give us a good forecast for the Brattleboro, VT area on Sunday? You must be able to tell us something better than what I can grab from weather.com.

Are we going to be freezing out butts off?

Actually it will be pleasant, considering what time of year it is. There is a nasty weather system moving that way right now--so by Saturday it will be passed you--however it will more than likely be cloudy and quite windy. That may bring windchill temps in the 30s, but nothing you guys aren't used to. If this is an outside event--yes, you could ask for better weather, but for December, I wouldn't expect any mind-blowing temperatures out of this system. Earlier next week is when it will drop more as that cold air pushes in from Canada.

Thanks!

This is an outdoor event, but sounds like it'll be fine.

It was a little chilly, but not bad. I can't remember the wind (Gilb's place is in town and kind of wind-sheltered), but there wasn't any rain. High 30s, low 40s, IIRC. So, looks like you got it right

Cool. Maybe I should consider doing this as a career choice.

What can you tell us about March 17th, up at Kai's?

Actually - how far out CAN we start thinking about a forecast being reasonably accurate? Seven days?

depends on the time of year and the location of the area the forecast is for . . .

EXAMPLE: In the Milwaukee area in the month of March you need a forcast about 30 seconds prior to the event
