Inclement Weather Expected for 2016 Ceremony
In about 31 hours from now, the switch will be flipped and The Tree will be illuminated but will you be brave enough to weather the storm (no pun intended) as the forecast predicts low temperatures and rain in Manhattan. If that is not enough, it will also be darker than usual as the time fell back an hour for EST so flipping the switch at a few minutes to 9:00 PM will feel like it is being done at 10:00 PM.
With security concerns in the area, umbrellas (know your etiquette) will most likely be restricted again along with all or certain size backpacks so even if your are protected under your rain gear, your camera equipment could get wet. Get out there by 2:00 PM (2:30 PM the latest) before everything gets locked down tight.
