What should you expect of the weather during the ICP5 Conference, and how will that affect what you bring with you?
Expect beautiful, sunny SUMMER days. Warm weather is typical for this time of year in Utah, even in the mountain ranges. High temperatures are generally just under 86F (30C) in the afternoons, and overnight low temperatures are about 48F (9C). These temperatures are accompanied by very low relative humidity. This means that the higher temperatures here will feel much cooler than the same temperatures at most locales with higher humidity. The low humidity means very dry air; plan to drink lots of water, and bring lotion for your skin.
What does this weather suggest for conference attire and other packing considerations?
The summer days invite light-to-medium weight fabrics for long pants (or skirts/capris) with light weight fabric short-sleeved shirts. The mountain sun can easily burn light skin; if you anticipate much time outdoors, consider shorts or capris and short-sleeve shirts and hats. Lightweight sweaters, shawls, and sport jackets are necessary for the cool evenings, and are suggested attire while in the air-conditioned meeting rooms.
