Inauguration Weather

On Tuesday, you had a chance to vote in our poll (and you can still vote) on inauguration weather conditions. If you'd like to be more specific about your prediction, post a short comment below (about 60 words or so). We may even publish your forecast on the blog.

Keep reading for the specifics of what we're looking for...

In your prediction: 1) Describe the day (Jan. 20) overall 2) Include predicted swearing-in (noon EST) temperature at Reagan National Airport and sky/weather conditions 3) Briefly describe the rationale for your forecast -- it need not be scientific.

We'll feature some of your predictions alongside our own in blog posts starting tomorrow when Dan Stillman and I begin providing dueling daily inauguration forecasts!

Beautiful sunshine, calm seas and tranquil winds. President-elect Obama has been blessed by the warmth of millions of souls. The weather is going to be fine, just fine.
