Oscars Weather: Extra Hairspray Needed!

Oscar Forecast

The 85th Annual Academy Awards show will begin tomorrow afternoon.  In recent years, the weather hasn’t been all that cooperative.  This year may also be troublesome for fancy updos but not due to the cold or the rain, its the wind that will be howling tonight into tomorrow afternoon.

Hair maybe flying this year with a windy weekend ahead in Southern California. There is a wind advisory in effect for much of the area through the weekend.  From the National Weather Service:

High temperature of 66 expected today, which is just a shade cooler than normal of 69 degrees.  Skies will remain clear so no tents or umbrella’s needed.

2011 – Cold!

Last year it was particularly cold at the Oscars with high temperatures in Los Angeles only in the mid 50s.  Overnight lows fell into the low 40s, which was just a few degrees shy of the record low of 39.  On the plus side, it was sunny.

2010 – Wet

Tents were used to shelter attendees from the rainy weather.

Have a great Saturday!
