Weather Worries

September is traditionally the worst month for tropical activity in the Atlantic. I’ve been judiciously stalking the National Hurricane Center for past two weeks, cursing every time a new formation appears. Hurricane Katia spared the northeast and it appears as though TS Maria will now hopefully do the same.

While I should be doing a happy dance that no major systems will throw a wrench in our plans the 10 day forecast doesn’t look too promising right now:

We’re currently looking at a 40% chance of rain in the afternoon and that’s a good 30% higher than I’d like. Ultimately I know it’s out of our hands and we’ll just have to make the best of it but for an über planner the uncertainty is just plain torture.

Anyone else checking the weather way more than they’d like to admit?

    weather schmeather…it looked pretty promising for no rain on my day (outdoor wedding) up until the day before when it said 40% chance of rain…and it did rain…but only for about 10 minutes right when the ceremony was supposed to start…and then it was beautiful…it added character to the day…don’t stress out about it…with the atlantic, you never know what you’re going to get!

    Our wedding next September in Louisiana, so even though I’m a year out I’m worried about the weather. At this point obviously there’s nothing I can do, but I’m sure next year I’ll be freaking out as the day approaches.

    Even though our wedding is in February, I’ve been all over the weather. Checking almanacs and weather patterns for the last 20 year or so. Plus, I have a weather app on my wedding website to keep people abreast of weather in the area. You can never be too vigilant! I’m sending good weather vibes your way.
