Centennial of Worst Inaugural Weather Upcoming

Washington (AP) President-elect Barack Obama is hoping for one more win on inauguration day—from the weather.

It’s already happened twice, the first time when he chose an outdoor location for his acceptance speech at the Democratic National Convention in Denver last August. It was balmy. Then on election night, it was around 60 degrees in Chicago in November for the victory celebration.

Since this is January, just normal would be nice.

And that’s just about what the current forecast calls for: highs in the mid 30s and a below average chance of precipitation.

The worst inaugural weather was in 1909 when 10 inches of snow fell in Washington, streets were clogged and trains stalled. And that was in March.
