Default weather for the fest?

Ok, just for those who will be coming in from afar, does anyone care to predict what the weather will be like in DC for the Fest?

Short Sleeves
Sweater
Light Jacket
Heavy Jacket
Umbrella
Rain Slicks
Wet Weather Gear
Arctic Survival Suits

Ok just kidding on the Short Sleaves...

So far they are predicting mid 80's (26C) and partly cloudy. But give it an hour and it will change to a blizzard, then in another hour there will be a hurricane coming.

It's summer.
It's D.C..
It's going to be too hot and too humid.

Short sleeves is actually a wise choice, something you can wring out and put back on is even better.

Welcome to the prehistoric swamp that is our nation's capital. The weather changes hourly, so don't bet on the forecast being anywhere near accurate until it's two-days away (and even then it could change).

Bring shorts, t-shirts, and comfortable clothes. It will likely be hot and humid, or raining and humid, or cloudy and humid, or humid and humid with a side of humidity.

Also bring swim trunks if you want to go for a dip in the hotel pool or check out one of the local water parks.

Also, bring a knife to cut the air so you can chew it instead of breathing it.
