Pending weather for Otakon 2013

Good news is it won't be super hot on Otakon weekend but the bad news is we will be expecting showers that weekend as well as a Thunderstorm on Saturday. So if you plan on waiting in line outside or have a shoot at the outdoor fountains, please stay dry.

According to this there's only a 30% chance of rain on Thursday and Friday: http://www.weather.com/weather/tenda...+MD+21201:4:US
So I wonder if the thunderstorm on Saturday is only a 30% chance of a storm.

I really hope it doesn't rain. >_< I was planning on wearing a fancy cosplay on Saturday and there's no way I'm going to wear it if it rains. :/

Man I hope it doesn't rain. The rain at animeNEXT was not a fun time. I was hoping Otakon would be a bit dry.

30% isn't that high... weather always changes so maybe as we get closer to the date it'll change so there's no rain????? Well, crossing my fingers xD

Alright, so Maryland weather, you can't really trust the weather things like that, especially this far before. Wait for Wednesday or Thursday before even worrying about rain. Also, 30% is closer to 10% or 0% here.

Otakon down here is a very hot scene. But as said above the chance for rain is really low on those days :] Just remember to bring water!
I'm not telling you it's going to be easy, I'm teling you it's going to be worth it.~

DC/Md/Va summers often get a lot of late afternoon/evening thunderstorms. They don't always last long.
