This weekend is supposed to be the hottest so far this year for Washington DC. Predicted temperatures for the convention are as follows:


Thursday: 98

Friday: 98

Saturday: 97

Sunday: 84.


We may hit the hottest temperatures for DC in the past 7 years (for the entire summers, not just Otakon).

The values are so out of whack the heat index simply doesn't work (pegging the heat index around 117-118 on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday)


This is a serious heat event. People WILL be removed from Otakon in an ambulance.


Please be careful. Drink a lot. Especially water. The convention center usually has water coolers in most rooms. Bring a disposable bottle of water if you may have to wait in line outside. If you're cosplaying, rethink the outside photoshoots. Be especially careful if you're wearing a costume that doesn't breathe (armor, leather, vinyl, etc).


I don't know if Otakon is reading the forum, but please watch out for your volunteers who are outside minding lines. Swap outside and inside volunteers every 30/60 minutes. Make sure you're providing them with water. Take it outside to them!
