;D I have been checking the forcast on the king 5 website for seattle (most accurate and conservative forcasts) for about a week now and dam, It looks like were in for a perfect memorial day weekend ;D Sunshine, warm weather and blue sky sounds pretty nice about right now. It looks as if everyday will be easily in the 80s with the exception of monday in which upper 70s forcasted for Downtown Seattle which is like what...95 gorge temp Im preparing for 4 days in the sun.. Sunscreen, water, shade, ice, and money for 12 dollar beers.... Be sure to bring plenty of all.
forecasts 2 weeks in advance are so unreliable, but it's probably a good bet that it'll be sunny at the gorge. hopefully not 95 degrees every day like last year though. about 10 degrees cooler would be perfect for most people.
I like the fact that we are within the 15-day forecast, but agree that weather is too unpredictable to take those predictions seriously. If you don't plan for all reasonable weather scenarios then you could very easily be caught unprepared. The infamous hail storm a couple years back is a perfect example. A 99 cent vinyl poncho saved my and my girlfriend's asses that year. We stayed dry hunkered down on the hill while everyone ran around like like mad looking for shelter. It was hilarious to watch, and also awesome that after it was over we had one of the few dry pieces of earth to sit on.
My point is: no matter what the forecast is, prepare for heat, cold, wind, and rain, and hope for the best!
