Doesn't look good - will just have to hope that proves to be wrong.

On the plus side, it would allow me to get some work done this week.

The weather channel is terribly inaccurate, local news is much more accurate. Tomorrow there will be play...maybe not continuous but it will happen.

BBC weather also reports continuous rain for Paris tomorrow.

Not that they're amazingly accurate - that's the thing with forecasting - weather can change unexpectedly because they can't take absolutely everything into account.

If they could they'd always know where hurricanes would make landfall, etc.

massive rain clouds moving to paris from the south. they should arrive in a few hours.

not much play to be expected tomorrow

Well in general they suck because they use are using satellites to track weather patterns from afar, and local weather places use doplar radar.

I am not bashing them just to bash my little buddy!

Oh, did I mention a good way to keep from being bored, tomorrow? Listen to the poorly dubbed interviews in the multimedia section of Rolandgarros.com! They're hilarious, the translator lady tries to do like inflections with her voice, and show mood and stuff; then she gets far behind and talks super fast and gets flustered at herself. Now that's entertainment!!!

The weather forecast for to-day was rain (yahoo/weather) all day. So if the waether forecast for to-morrow is rain, it likely will be fine as it was to-day.

The Weather Channel has been sucking recently.

On Monday, it was forecasted for SEVERE weather here (and said that we could expect large, damaging hail and strong winds). I cancelled all of my planned outdoor activity.

It didn't even rain.

Yesterday, partly cloudy skies were forecasted....so I went to class without an umbrella. And of course, on the way to class, I got rained on.

Yeah, but Federer is scheduled to play at roughly the same time as Nadal on Chartier so no way will it rain. Remember: Mother Nature will always look out for JesusFed. It will rain on Friday.

they really need roofs on the 2 show courts. it is supposed to not only rain tomorrow but also on friday.

next week, rain is possible on tuesday, wednesday, and then again on friday.

it is hurting the players, fans, sponsors, and the sport. you would think that those pricks would wake up and stop living like it was the stone ages.

some of this may have something to do with global warming. you can expect this wimby to be a mess also.

It will rain only on Nadal's court

When I first read your wrote astrologist, I thought you did it on purpose. Meteorologist studies many weather charts, radar reports, etc etc to do forecast and that's not what most posters here did. They are thus more astrologists in my eyes. :lol:

Fed will be done while the Clay Montster is still warming up. then the damn skies will open up for 3 long days. Clay Monster to finish his next match in 7 days. he will then be asked to play his next 5 matches in 3 days.

the french are laughed at and spit at by the whole world except the Swiss for the rest of the miserable lives for not having retractable roofs.

Nadal wins anyway.

You mean only Nadal's side of the court.

hra87

You mean only Nadal's side of the court.

Actually, I'm pretty sure it'll rain in a circle with a 1 meter diameter around Nadal.

Or better, yet, it'll just pour precisely where he is about to move and where the ball is about to land on his side of the court.

I'm looking at various webcams around Paris and it doesn't look like it's raining but that isn't necessarily accurate.
