Not only will knowing the weather tell you which places are ideal to visit at a certain time in the day, it will also help you plan the clothes that you will bring accordingly. For example, if you know for a fact that the temperature in that particular place is very much fluctuating, you may want to opt for thin clothes and just bring a jacket in case it gets colder. Bringing clothes such as sweaters or knitted wear won't suit you in case the weather suddenly becomes hot and your hotel is too far to change to a thinner clothing. In other words, you will be able to plan to bring clothes which are more flexible when you have a better idea about the overall condition of weather in that place.
