There are five weather forecasters getting ready for a weekend forecast. Each forecaster is predicting different weather and is choosing a suit and "tie" (yes, the women, too) of different color combinations. There are 3 men (John, Matt and Tim) and 2 women (Karen and Sarah).

Can you determine the color of the suit, the color and pattern of the tie, and the weather prediction for each forecaster?

1. The forecaster who wore a black suit did not predict snow or rain.

2. Many viewers called in to comment on the whimsically printed tan tie and brown suit combination.

3. The five forecasters were: Matt, the woman who predicted high winds, the person in a black suit, the man with a striped tie, and the woman in an olive suit.

4. A solid white tie was chosen to represent the snowy forecast that day.

5. John's orange tie was hated by his wife.

6. Sarah had a teal colored tie which was not floral.

7. Tim predicted sun and did not wear brown or black.

8. The man who predicted rain did not wear a striped tie.

9. The blue suit was worn by a man.

I wrote this myself and it's harder than I remember...

its easy if you use paper.

Yeah, I've found that sometimes the grids don't make it as easy as you think it is. Paper is the way to go on a lot of these. thanks for trying it!

OK, I got everything until orange floral and pink striped. Did I miss something? Because I got it to work with orange striped and pink floral. Also, isn't it just assumption that the teal tie went with the grey suit instead of the olive suit. I know it would look hideous, but there doesn't seem to be an actual logic link.

There is an actual logic link.. one woman wore an olive suit and one woman predicted wind. Since we know that the white tie went with the snow, it could not have been the woman who predicted wind. Therefore, the woman with the olive suit (the only one left to have predicted snow) had to have the white tie.

Also you can't have a floral pink tie because then the listing clue (#3) won't work.. you have to have the man in the striped tie not be Matt or the man in the black suit. See? It's all there and it is a little harder than it looks, but like the previous poster said, the piece of paper makes it a cinch.

I liked the writing and the clever, stingy clues. Very difficult and very entertaining.

Well written. It took three attempts before I got it, and even then I had difficulty in figuring it out. Frustrating, yet still enjoyable.

Great challenge teaser...made me have to really think about that...good one

I didn't use a piece of pape, I used the 1's and 2's that are available. Trying one possibility and then the other, I was able to determine which woman had the olive suit and which tie was striped.

Great teaser, mejoza!

Sep 27, 2005

Thanks phrebh... I never knew what the 1s and 2s were for! I'm pretty good at logic grids, but the "possibility" thing gets me so confused.

I think I know how to wrtie a logic grid now; it's the other categories that get me.

Great Job!! Actually made me think on that one! Now I know what the 1's & 2's are for. I never really thought about it before! Nice teaser!! Absolutely LOVED it!!

Good job! I really enjoyed this one. I got it on the first try, although it took a while I used the 1 and 2 like Phrebh to figure out which woman was windy and which one was striped after that it was pretty easy!

I looked back, I should have said olive, not striped!

Great teaser! I like that I had to work for the clues. You gave just enough to have all the info, but enough to give it away. I agree with using paper. I always have some on hand when doing logic grids just in case. It comes in especially handy when you have the "5 people are..." clues. Hope to see more from you.

sorry, meant to wrint NOT enough to give it away.

Where did I find out the fifth colour was pink, the weather forecast was foggy, the suit colour was gray and the tie design was dotted? Its probably really obvious but I can't see it. Nice puzzle though.

Very Nice Puzzle!
First time in more than a year I had to use almost the entire grid to get the answer!

You gave the perfect amount of information in each clue. This teaser was challenging, yet really fun and creative. Thanks!

I could have solved this in half the time if I'd just noticed "the MAN who predicted rain"... This was a lot of fun!!! Loved the way u framed it!
