Inauguration Day Forecasting Faceoff
The Capital Weather Gang is doing meteorological combat this month to predict exactly how miserable inauguration-goers will be outside on Jan. 20, and you're invited to join the melee.
While predicting the weather out past a week is dicey at best, chief meteorologist Jason Samenow currently sees normal January temperatures (low around 30, high in the upper 30s) and a good chance of precipitation. Lead meteorologist Dan Stillman expects a smidgen more warmth -- a low in the low 30s, a high in the upper 40s -- but still sees some rain on the way.
The Weather Gang also is showcasing reader predictions -- to make yours, go to the post and leave it in the comments. There's also a rundown of the weather from recent inaugurations, if you want to use history as a guide. The gang also takes a closer look today at one of the messier inaugurations, in 1961, when eight inches of snow put a damper on John F. Kennedy's festivities.
You can see past (and future) posts on this topic in the Capital Weather Gang's Inauguration Forecasts category.
