    Rally Weather

    Sinne I'm comming from the hot south, what are the average weather and temperture ranges I should be prepared for in July in Wisconsin.

    Can I get by with a summer sleeping bag? etc.

    The current 10 day forcast looks rather nice. What are the possible extremes.

    It was 90+ and sticky humid today, supposed to cool off and rain in the next couple of days and then start the trend right back up.

    So it depends on what you consider cold. I'd sleep in a summer bag down to 40degrees, but I have 12 packs abs to keep me warm.

    I plan to leave the sleeping bag at home and just sleep on the air mattress with a CoolMax cocoon.

    ah, you guys missed a great chance to pull some chains.. The correct answer should have been...

    "Hmm.. July, the ice has just come of the lakes, temperature might be 30-35 without the wind chill factor..."

    Of course, you just quoted the temperature in degrees C... You have to push the northern stereotype whenever you get the chance!

    The weather in Southern Wisconsin is why the rally was sited in West Bend. If it had been any where north of US 8 we may have had to plow the parking lot and snow blow the campsites.

    having actually grown up in west bend (14 summers) expect anything from the sticky 90s to the cool and wet 60s depends on which way the wind blows(or doesn't) hopefully we'll get mid 70s and no storms, ( I not to worried I get a bed at my sisters farm 4 miles away, a/c and showers)
