Spencer learned this summer that event weather is different from your usual TV weather forecast because meteorologists forecast for a specific point.

“Event forecasting is entirely different, and I’ve been very lucky to help out a bit with anything that’s going on with the band and with Drum Corps in particular,” Adkins said.

Drum Corps International has a full team of people constantly monitoring the weather to make sure everything that moves stays safe, people stay dry, everyone stays happy and the show can go on.

It’s not just thunderstorms, but also winds, heat, turf temperatures and more that are being monitored to ensure the safety of all attendees and fans.
