October Wedding

Hi what can I predict for October 10, 2020 weather wise? Planning an outdoor wedding!!

June 2020 weather

Rainy or dry?

June: rainy or dry

The Editors's picture

Both. But not at the same ttime.

Why is Richmond, VA considered North? It has Carolina weather.

Why would Richmond, VA be considered North when most of the time it is below the Jetstream and consistently has Carolina weather? Doesn't seem to make sense.

Why is Richmond, VA, in Region 2

The Editors's picture

Richmond is not considered to be north by us; however, we do consider it to be in the Atlantic Corridor. The weather regions as drawn for the Almanac are based on the climatological movement of weather systems (as we note in the Almanac every year). This means that the weather, while not the same conditions, is often delivered by the same system. For ex., a storm may bring you rain but it dellivers snow further north in areas in (and abutting) this region. That’s why we often predict “snow north, rain south” over a period of days.

Mid May wedding

Please tell me it wont rain on May 16 2020 in Sputh Jersey.

May 16

There may be thunderstorms in the area, but they are scattered. (You shouldn’t be.)
