"Some things gotta give now..."
- Lyrics from One Thing, by the UK Band One Direction

7:10 AM EST 11/27 (Forecaster Zach & The Metro New York Team) Welcoming One Direction to the United States! Who's pumped to see the singers perform headline at Madison Square Garden next week? Our local team sure is excited for this latest "British invasion!" We have epic schedule of fusion forecasts planned for the band's US visit this week.

WHAT'S THE ONE DIRECTION CONNECTION? Those of you who have been following our team know it is led by students like us right here in New York, and over 75 other local forecasters across the US. We even have team forecasting in Northern Ireland and London. So it seems only right that we reach out to the internationally-acclaimed youth band from the UK and give them a uniquely local forecast, from our team, to theirs!

  • As today's snow event graces the region with a few inches of pre-winter snow from eastern PA to southeast NY, conditions will be improving (though temps feel more like Cheshire of northwest England) with highs only in the mid 40s. 
  • By Friday's opening show in CT, sunny skies will prevail, making for a grand first opening day for your travel to the Mohegan Sun Arena in Uncasville, CT 
  • For the weekend: Epic bright blue skies each of the 3 performance days, with highs in the low 40s to Sunday with winds shifting to the southwest.  

We'd like to know, are any readers here planning to attend One Direction's headline concert next week at Madison Square Garden? Perhaps you have a picture or two from a holiday visit to the Gardens from a previous year. Our Weather Graphics Team is preparing special forecast graphics for the event, as part of our welcoming a fellow group of students to the US! 

Please send any photos you would permit us to use in a forecast graphic to team@footsforecast.org
