What Not To Wear-- Philadelphia version

Wondering what the weather is like in Philly and what to wear at the conference?

The world's favorite season is the spring. All things seem possible in May.
- Edwin Way Teale
To quote an old Norwegian saying “There is no such thing as bad weather. Only bad clothing”. It is always a challenge when packing to anticipate what you will be wearing. Typical spring weather in Philadelphia calls for high temperatures around 74°F/23°C and lows around 52°F/11°C. Dress for all sessions is business casual. Temperatures in meeting rooms tend to be cool so bring a light jacket or sweater. Don’t forget to bring an umbrella and a raincoat. But don’t worry if you forget anything, Philadelphia has boutiques and stores galore to find that special something.

To help you plan your wardrobe accordingly for your trip to the city of brotherly and sisterly love I have compiled some information and weather links for you to check out.

Weather reports: Check the weather forecast for Philadelphia a few days before you leave (Accuweather.com link for Philadelphia is on blog, right column under blog archive), then adjust your wardrobe plans. Layering is a sound strategy given the frigidity of some meeting rooms compared to the allure of outdoor activities on a nice spring day. Just remember
The trouble with weather forecasting is that it's right too often for us to ignore it and wrong too often for us to rely on it.

So, if you don’t like the weather reports on one website- try another!!!
