Forecasting the weather is a combination of art, science and luck — which is why weather reporters always deal in percentages rather than absolutes. Even though the process isn’t perfect, it’s still wise to listen to the broadcasts and pay attention to the clues about what’s coming. At the same time, it’s also good to keep a “weather eye” on the sky to look for local or fast-developing atmospheric activity that distant forecasters may not even be aware of.
When planning hiking or camping trips, it is vital to keep track of what’s happening weather-wise. Without knowing what the short- and long-term trends are, you might inadvertently travel into the path of a storm. So, along with packing the hot dogs, pop and ice in the cooler; filling the vehicle with fuel and making sure the sleeping bags and tent are aboard, be sure to make tapping into weather information part of your pre-trip checklist.

CAMPING TRIP WEATHER PLANNING IS EASIER TO DO
Thanks to modern technology, obtaining the 411 on weather has never been easier. For about the same amount of money it takes to fill your gas tank, you can buy a compact, battery-powered weather radio that continuously broadcasts National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) weather reports all across the country. There are seven channels on the NOAA system, and the frequencies are broadcast nationwide by local reporting systems.
When traveling cross-country, simply change from one channel to another to continue receiving information on current conditions, forecasts, severe weather warnings, travel advisories and other emergency information for the region you’re in.
If you have Internet access, you can log on to the NOAA website at noaa.gov and follow the prompts to search for local weather information. The Weather Channel (weather.com) is another bookmark-worthy site, and lets you input the city and state, or simply the zip code, of the area you’re concerned with to quickly access weather info. Not only can you obtain a relatively long-term forecast, but you can also look at satellite images that show the movement of clouds and storm systems over a particular area.
Don’t overlook the evening news or local newspapers. And don’t forget to recheck that information on the morning of your departure. By accessing these sources, you will have a better chance of planning your trip around bad weather and being prepared for what is coming. Don’t be shy about postponing your plans when inclement weather looms large.
The weather can also take a sudden and unexpected turn for the worse. So once you’re out there camping and having a good time, it’s important to pay attention to what’s going on around you. You’ll be able to witness local atmospheric activities that may have eluded remote forecasters.
