Weather plays a vital role when you travel, especially on those days when you're caught in an unexpected downpour without an umbrella. Knowing what to expect beforehand can mean the difference between a drenched sprint and a pleasant stroll. But it's not really possible to plan around unpredictable weather—or is it?
Weather.com has recently launched a vacation-planning tool that helps travelers prepare for their upcoming trip. Travelers can utilize detailed guides and up-to-date forecasts for more than 400 destinations, as well as view interactive maps of each. You will also find a handy what-to-pack tool, which makes clothing suggestions based on your vacation destination's weather.
If you're still undecided about where or when to go, Weather.com also offers suggestions with its 23 Top 10 lists, which cover a wide range of vacation options. The climate comparison tool is also quite helpful when choosing between two destinations and the best times to visit.
You can also find further information about when to go in our own Travel Guides. Weather can be unpredictable, but now there's no excuse to get caught off guard in the rain.
