KumoriCon weather forecast!
« on: August 26, 2012, 05:51:01 pm »
It's that time again.... for the KUMORICON WEATHER FORECAST!

It won't be Arizona-like this year, but it will be fairly close this year. The average high should be in the high 70s, per weather.com

I almost hope it doesn't get too warm :T

I'll be wearing a long wig all morning on Day 1, then taking it off for my normal hair on the same day. I hope the heat doesn't make me sweat too much, making a greasy mess in my hair D:
Good News and Bad News.
Bad news is I can't go to Kumoricon the whole weekend because of costs and drivers ed.

GOOD NEWS is that if I can raise enough money I can go for Saturday all day as Espurr (Pokemon X/Y)
Hope to see you all then! <3

I'm seeing:

KGW for Portland:
Fri:81 Sat:86 Sun:86 Mon:?

Weather Channel: Vancouver WA
Fri:79 Sat:81 Sun:78 Mon:75

Weather Underground: Vancouver WA
Fri:79 Sat:88 Sun:82 Mon:68

AccuWeather: Vancouver WA
Fri:80 Sat:85 Sun:84 Mon:72



Looks good to me!!! =) Minus the one that says 88. I can handle the mid 70's to low 80's. Higher than that and I hide in an AC ventilated area. xD

Aww hell. This is not going to be a good year to cosplay in drapery and armor (even cloth and cardboard armor).

FWIW, the National Weather Service agrees with the Weather Channel. According to them, it won't break 80. :)


(at least for Friday through Sunday - no forecast for Monday yet)

The 7-day forecast on the local FOX station says that Portland will reach 80 on Friday - Sunday.  I'm not sure how that'll compare to up here, though...

From what I've found on weather.com, using the zip code 98660... Friday=78-55, 0% chance of rain... Saturday=84-58, 0% chance of rain... Sunday=80-59, 0%chance of rain... Monday=77-59, 0% chance of rain.

Even though it's gonna be a bit cooler at con this year, if you are waiting in the reg or pre-reg line outside:

HYDRATE.

Better to be hydrated than have heat exhaustion or worse, heat stroke.

I get this feeling that where last year felt like AZ, this year is more like Miami or Los Angeles.

Probably more like Long Beach, CA. Sunny and warm, but humid and surprisingly cool evenings. Hopefully, we'll have some breeze. That bothered me last year with close to no wind.

Let's see what the forecasts say in a few days- Wednesday or Thursday, maybe.

They're not all that accurate past half a week.  A lot could change.

Yeah, I can see it now...

"Friday, 55-37, light clouds with a 75% chance of rain; Saturday, 64-49, cloudy all day with a 30% chance of rain; Sunday, 104-123, blazing hot with a -65% chance of rain; Monday, 72-16, light clouds, tornadoes, and floodings with a 5% chance of rain." ;D

I did the very first one, with the corn starch. Luckily I had some in my pantry. I usually don't have or use corn starch much xD (I remember when I was making pudding one time and I needed corn starch, but there was none at all I could find ]: )

Friday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 53.
Saturday: Sunny, with a high near 77.
Saturday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 53.
Sunday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 76.
Sunday Night: Partly cloudy, with a low around 55.

Dude I know! I think I'm going to just bring a water bottle.

I know I don't have the worst cosplay to wear in hot weather, but it's up there. I get to wear a heavy trench coat for two of the four cosplays (plus a wig for all except for one). And a turban type thing for one. Also an under armour t shirt underneath three of them, to make sure I don't get any "stains."
Wow that sounds confusing  :P.......

It's sounding more and more tolerable.  This is extra good, because one of the folks crashing at my apartments has pointed out that the wig I'll be using for Pinkie Pie could melt under the heat of the sun.  (Of course the last few cons she went to were in Oklahoma and north Texas, but still...).

I'm telling my parents that it will be really hot and I'll sweat like a monster, but they're all like "You're going to be INSIDE the whole time. Don't worry C: " and I'm like "-__- It's hot inside too with a million other con-goers." XD
