Wonder what the Weather will be?

Have you ever wanted to know what the weather might be like for your outdoor sporting event in the future, perhaps in another city? The big football game in a few weeks, or the marathon in a few months!

The following is also a great tool for planning a family vacation! Weather Underground provides a way to easy search weather history through their Trip Planner.

Use the following example to see the weather I might expect for my next marathon in Houston, Texas in January! Play around with it to see what you might expect the weather to be like for your next vacation, or destination marathon!

As another example, the average weather in Cleveland from May 15-25 is between 46-61 degrees -- Clevaland Marathon is on May 20 and somewhere in the middle of that range is the perfect weather for running!!

The report provides the average highs, lows, and chance in terms of a percent, that it will be a "hot", "warm", or "freezing" day, as well as the chance of precipitation. As you will see, there is a great chance that I will have quite perfect running weather for my next marathon in Houston!

You can select a single date, or for a better idea of the time of year, choose a range of dates around your specific date. For example, my race is on January 15, so I choose Jan. 12-18, in order to compile more data. Have fun!
