THE SPRING BREAK ZONE
"TRAVEL & WEATHER GO TOGETHER"
FORECASTS FOR HOT VACATION SPOTS
By Forecaster Ryan K., Dundalk, Maryland

"It's time to say goodbye"

8:45 PM TUE 4.6.2010 Well ladies and gentlemen, after forecasting for the best Spring Break locations, the breaks that many students, teachers, parents, and others experienced is winding down and saying goodbye to everyone. I am sure that next year, the zone will return, forecasting for even more places and in a stronger form. Spring break is meant to enjoy, and I hope everyone that hoped to have some time for themselves did so, because many love it this time of year. Tune in next year as the Spring Break Zone will surely be revived. FAREWELL FOLKS! From Forecaster RYAN.

8:30 PM FRI 4.2.2010 In many of our vacation spots which are being forecasted for, the weather this week was very enjoyable, except for the passing shower or two. In this piece of the forecast, I will be issuing 3 day outlooks for the next 3 days (Saturday, Sunday, and Monday.) These forecasts are going to be in textual format unlike the last set because of the shorter period that is being analyzed. The locations that were previously used are the 14 that will be followed up on. Enjoy!

10:30 PM SAT 3.27.2010
The big week has finally arrived. For most, this is the weekend in which many people are taking their vacations away from home and are enjoying a true "break." For some it couldn't have came any quicker, and is truly a breath of fresh air.

Enjoy these forecasts for 14 great destinations:















If anyone has any locations that they would like to have forecasted, please drop it in the comments and I will make it happen. Thanks!

7:05 PM SUNDAY 3.21.2010 Here are some of the first destinations hot off the press, with lots of popularity in the spring break world. More to come! (Next up: A location in the Bahamas)




If you would like to have a location that is popular for spring break forecasted, comment this page and I will make it happen!

7:05 PM SATURDAY 3.20.2010 After all the eastern U.S. has faced through this hectic and historic winter, the Vernal (Spring) Equinox arrived on schedule at 1:32 PM EST today. Unfortunately that memo did not get one large region of the
country's midsection! Once again, snow falling is unwelcoming falling across the "Arklotex" area of Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas in addition to along the upper Mississippi river valley. More details on what we hope is winter's last gasp in this snow weary area of the southern Plains.

To warm you up in this new season, we are excited to being launching The Spring Break Zone. This specialty forecast zone is designed to include many of the high school and college students' favorite destinations truly deserving a "break." Some are already enjoying their breaks, and others are waiting for this next week to unravel so they can enjoy a few days off of hopefully good weather in the middle of a busy school year. Earlier, some public schools in Maryland and other states were considering shaving off a part of spring break due to the record-breaking winter. Luckily, none of that actually happened, but those in the school community know that payment for the many days off this winter will be due in full come June!

Please check back soon for detailed forecasts covering several major vacation spots along the East coast,  Gulf coast and Caribbean Sea.
