According to the Old Farmer's Almanac for Vibes area : Summer temperatures will be near normal, on average, with near- to below-normal rainfall. The hottest periods will be in early to mid-June, late July, and early August. I predict warm days(mid 80s, not like last year) and nights will be cooler (67-70) unlike last years 75 with 90% humidity. One thunderstorm on Saturday and that's all the rain we will receive...what u say?

Last year was just brutal. I have never felt so oppressed by the weather at a fest. Even a rainy fest can be circumvented. That heat last year was without solution.

I agree with gregoir, although 75-80 would be fine..that 55 at night is key to a good nights sleep for me. The first night at Nateva it hit 45 degrees and I slept like a baby..

Last year was a survival/endurance test. I'm still amazed I stayed upright all weekend since that kind of heat and I are not friends.

I'm going with daytime 80s, nighttime hi 60s/low 70s and praying for low humidity and limited (if any) rainfall. I think we're due some good weather karma this summer to make up for last.

let the rocks fly, but i like festivals in the rain :blush:

i can rock my irreverent rain boots, don my long raincoat which grants one the anonymity to move about freely, i never get hot and sweaty and feel like i am going to pass out, i dont have to worry about sunburn...its easier to get warm (throw on a hoodie!) than it is to cool your core when its sweat-yer-tits-off hot out

besides, other than the risk of damage or injury, i have thoroughly enjoyed the thunderbobby events of the past :blush:
05 was spectacular :eek: and even though the couple of thunderbobbys since then have paled by comparison, they have been fun :gregoir:

however, it HAS been reallllly nice to not have to even THINK about putting up tarpasaurus the past few years :dance: (cuz drying out and packing up the 40x25 monster is NOT easy :plain: )
but it sure does a nice job of keeping velcro dry (and blue :funny1: )

just one gals opinion :mrgreen:

Here's the latest from the Farmer's Almanac for Bridgeport CT...JULY 2012: temperature 75° (1° below avg.); precipitation 6" (2" above avg.); Jul 1-9: Scattered t-storms; hot, then seasonable; Jul 10-12: Sunny, warm; Jul 13-20: T-storms, then sunny, hot; Jul 21-31: Scattered t-storms, warm and humid.
Not sure I like that "hot", nor do I like that word "humid"...the ghosts of last year are haunting me.Posted Image

Here's the latest from the Farmer's Almanac: July 2012
1st-3rd.
Fair skies.
4th-7th. Natural fireworks for the Fourth: heavy thunderstorms; then a return to fair, pleasant weather.
8th-11th. Windy, rather wet.
12th-15th. Fair, pleasant for New England. Drying out, turning progressively hotter for Mid-Atlantic States.
16th-19th. Scattered thunderstorms.
20th-23rd. Mostly fair.
24th-27th. Scattered showers then fair skies.
28th-31st. Changeable: mixed sun, clouds, with perhaps a passing shower.

I like it!!

new fact for everyboardie to know... the Occifer minored in Meteorology while in college.. i kind of studied weather my whole life.. those who are friends with me on the facebook.. know that i provide day by day updates during the winter... as i studied to be a Winter Weather Expert... but that doesn't mean i don't know how to read data for summer time... as the Vibes gets within 3 weeks.. i will be able to start a decent Weather Analysis leading to the event.

I'm hoping for a little rain on Thursday to knock the humidity out for the weekend and for Canada to pass some cool breezes our way...Bastards do it every winter so why not in the summer?


And look at that - I'm speaking temperatures in 'Merican! :funny1:


...and I'm hoping for weather in Canadian :ura1:

the Peas are pretty good seeing eye hippies, but when we are all together, things get really stumbly and :one: and they make the situation worse rather than helping :lol:

Ditto, except for actually minoring in it...I was one class short of being able to declare it as a 2nd minor

My early Vibes weather prediction:

Hazy, hot (upper 80s) and humid with a couple big t-storms rolling through over the course of the weekend. I don't think it get quite as hot as last year, but we seem to be mired this summer is a very moist weather pattern.

Yes, I said moist :tongue:
