We are hoping for mild weather during the conference, but weather in the Pacific Northwest can be very unpredictable in November.  The average high temperatures for this time of year is 13°C (57°F), with lows around 5°C (41°F). There’s a moderate probability of rain showers, so it recommended to bring an umbrella.
