    Will the weather hold out for camping next weekend?

    Thinking what is left of Dennis might track east for next weekend.

    According to weathermanson WMUR (CH9 in Manchester NH) Dennis should track south of us. But what do they know.

    Sorry to break it to you, but it's going to rain because of 2 things. 1) I'm going camping this weekend too and 2) I'm camping in Vermont. Either one on it's own will cause it to rain. Bring both of these factors together and watch out!

    Nope. Just going with experience. I don't let a little rain stop me though.

    TenPeaks - I hate to agree with you. My group (3 families) will be at Sebago Lake State Park from Wed - Sun and we are rain magnets. Last year we had a deluge every day. Fingers crossed.....

    But - on two of the Boston TV stations last night (channels 4 and 5) the weather people were saying that the remnants of Dennis would likely spin around and flood the midwest all week and then go out to sea south of us. Let's hope so......

    Last July I spent 5 days camping just outside of Baxter with my wife and some friends. On our first day there we hiked Katahdin and the weather was perfect. Bright sun, warm temps, and clear views. The next morning we woke up to rain and it didn't stop until the day we left.

    Speaking of rain magnets I have a tent I bought in '93 and probably use it 2 or 3 times a year. It has literally rained everytime I've camped with it. I call it the Rain Maker.

    There are times I actually like camping in the rain. For instance, it's such a pleasant sound hearing the pitter patter of rain drops on the tent fly when I'm lying inside trying to get to sleep.

    .....

    By the time anything reaches the Katahdin area..there's so much water evaporation from the numerous ponds and lakes added to influential air systems from Canada, you really never know. Rain, as mentioned, can stall for 4 days...and yet out of the bright sun with cumulus...humidity with some added cooling from gathered cloud cover....and all that moisture will just dump all of a sudden. Five miles away...you'll have a full day of sunshine & cumulus.

    I put down that I don't have a clue.

    The first thing you see is the poll. It asked what weather we'd have for next weekend. They meant this weekend, but there is always another next weekend... well, almost always.

    But as for this weekend, I can give you a good hindcast for yesterday, but Eye On The Sky is saying 85-88, today.

    It is misty and 74.

    Who knows?
