Our opens depend more on the interest in the property. I have had lookers arrive at my open house in a snowstorm who came because they were interested in the property.

Most usually cancel when it rains so as not to dirty up the house.  It's rare that it rains though.

I suppose, to some degree it impacts how many attend but, for the most part, unless it's raining cats & dogs, if they're going to venture out for an open house, they're coming, rain or shine, hot or cold!

When it rains, we blame low open house attendance on the rain.  When it's nice out we say that people had "nice weather" things to do.   And that's why I haven't done an open in 2+ years.  ;0

300+ days/year are sunny in SoCal, in those rare days that it is rainy, no one wants to see the house or even to drive. Holidays are also slowing down attendance as well.

Nothing like a good blizzard or grauple (smaller hail) to do in your planned open house. Don't do them anymore - too many things against you in the winter months like football too.

Bad weather, unrelenting rain, high winds and in my area of Florida, temperatures in the 50's is a clue to pick up the signs and do something productive. BUT.....if  a conversation earlier in the week advised the caller to come see the house during the Sunday open.....some obligation exists to stay or call the citizen back.

Being summer is only a 3 month event here, a beautiful sunny beach day in the Summer is probably not the best time for an Open House. Day of or day after a snowstorms not wise either.
