Weather

Look ... this is Newfoundland. No-one really tries to predict the weather. You have to prepare for 'climate change' on an hourly basis! But to give you some idea of what to expect, here's the actual historical record of temperatures on previous pilgrimages. (This data was recorded at St. John's Airport. On the coast the breeze coming off the sea can make it cooler.)

Have a look at what past pilgrims wore to be comfortable on the day.
