Since in the history of the 170 Association there has never been a convention held in September, I thought I was safe booking an Inside Passage Cruise to Alaska that month. The ship gets back to Seattle on the 14th, so we may make the last day of the convention.

Due to us guys coming from the other side of the earth our seasons are very different. It would be appreciated if the hosts of future conventions could indicate what weather to expect when we arrive at that time of year. Weather can be a changing environment at convention sites due to altitude and mountain influence on winds. A local input about a month before hand and what to expect would be greatly appreciated . We googled the weather [what to expect] at both the Cody and Vermont conventions and we were told it was going to be extremely cold . It ended up a T shirt and shorts situation .

I'm afraid in many, if not most cases, anything the host puts out there is going to be a best-guess hunch. Here in Texas, the weather forecasts are likely to be found in the funny pages :wink: We use https://www.accuweather.com/ and/or https://weather.com/. Usually their daily forecasts start to approximate reality when less than 10 days out. That's where I'd go for best guess on what to expect.

Ghostflyer is travelling from “Down Under”…and likely wants to simply know what “seasonal” conditions to expect.

The link I posted earlier is likely the most informational and “early best guess” as to the weather to be expected:
