So today we are 9 days away from the wedding! Among the million other things I am worried about, weather is one of them. I am close enough now to start checking the weather, but I am seeing mixed reports already! My question for all the bees is how accurate are weather forecasts? When should I start to think the forecast is accurate, how many days out???!!

That far out, they aren’t always very reliable.

the error bars are huge this far out. Don’t start fretting yet!! (Though I can’t start feeling comfortable that it will be sunny and 80 with a low of 60 here either…)

They can forecast something and still be inaccurate! Don’t worry so much. I’m trying not to!
They said today would be sunny and pretty outside and right now it’s cloudy. You never know what you’ll get!

4 or five days out starts to get fairly accurate. Watch your satellite every day- you can spot wind and cloud direction.

Around 3 days in, they are somewhat accurate. At 10 days, do not worry.
10 days away from my wedding, the forecast predicted 50 degrees with RAIN AND THUNDERSTORM not only on that day, but on the day before and the day after. I thought I was screwed haha.
5 days before the wedding, the forecast predicted 75 degrees with showers in the morning only.
The wedding day ended up being 73 degrees, no showers, sunshine the entire time. And this is APRIL in NEW YORK.
