Saturday night marks the 100-year anniversary of the sinking of the RMS Titanic, but not a repeat of the clear, calm and frigid weather experienced that fateful night.
Two cruise ships are currently en route to the site of the tragedy, where memorial services will be held Saturday night to pay tribute to the lives lost.
During those services, the weather may make it difficult for passengers to fully envision what it was like during those last hours on board the Titanic.
The Titanic plunged into the icy waters of the northern Atlantic amid clear, calm and frigid weather during the early morning hours of April 15, 1912.
The wind Saturday night will be far from calm. Instead, brisk winds will have many passengers bundling up for the memorial services.
Some clouds will also stream overhead Saturday night, preventing passengers from viewing the star-studded sky that likely dazzled those aboard the Titanic.
The clouds will precede an approaching storm system and its brief showers, which should remain off to the west of where the Titanic sunk through Saturday night.
Even without the showers, the memorial services are sure to be somber events as passengers think back to the night where 1,514 people lost their lives.
