Haiku Forecast

By Capital Weather Gang

Wx and the City

By Ann Posegate

Forecasts can be complicated and uncertain. So, here's your plain and simple weather report for the day:

Goin' on a date?
Bring an umbrella for two
Thunderstorms likely.

(It's ok to count the syllables...I won't be offended.)

Can you Haiku the forecast too?

Just how likely are thunderstorms today? See our full forecast, and NatCast for tonight's game at Nationals Park.

Winds are picking up.
Dark clouds, thunder rumbles. Rain?
Happy 50, Dad!

No rain in Loudoun

Can we get relief?

Prediction for snow:
one inch? one foot? which is right?
the city shuts down.

Weather is so easy:
"Snow, up to an inch or more"
How could that be wrong?

Ah, you wanted today's forecast...

Clouds are thickening.
Am I hearing thunder now?
Following it, rain?

Inspired by Andy:

Snow, up to an inch
or more. Were the models right?
Buried deep again.

commenters go wild!

The snow is falling
Everywhere else but here, darn
D.C. winters suck


Okay, here's another:

The thunder is here
The S.P.C. issues watch
Two hours too late

And another:

The ice and snow fall
Covering everything now
P.W.C. still open

lmao...can you tell there is a complaining pattern to my Haikus? Ahh..."complaining Haikus," what an oxymoron. What? You want me to make a NICE Haiku???


The leaves are blowing
On this crisp Autumn morning
The school bell rings now

There, happy? :)

These haikus are great!
Thank you for posting them here.
I sometimes find that

Once I start talking
In haiku syllables, though,
It is hard to stop!

Arlington, too
Showers keep passing us by
Hope it rains today.

I think that we, as in those in eastern Loudoun and western Montgomery, are getting skunked again this year. It is either storms that develop east of us or those that sweep west and then fall apart as they enter western Loudoun. I remember another summer like this. About two or three years ago. I have occasion to be in Rockville quite a bit and it has been one torrential downpour after another.

okay, here's one more
did you see rain yesterday?
little drips only.
