Wedding Weather

The Editors's picture

For the days around March 10 and on the date itself, we are predicting the weather to be sunny with cool temperatures. However, we do predict rainy periods before and after March 10, so it would be wise to have a back-up plan in case the weather shifts. Oh, and congratulations to your daughter!

While we can’t say how the weather will be on that Saturday exactly, we do predict the weather to be sunny with milder than average temperatures around February 17.

The long range prediction did not give a clue to the severe low temperatures that caused many water mains to freeze and burst.
