    It reads in today's report about Baumgartner attempt to make the highest skydive:

    "The current weather window for this year probably extends for another month."

    What "weather window" means? May it be "weather forecast" or "weather condition" or something else? I've never heard this phrase.

    Thanks for explanation!

    It is a weather condition for a period of time. If the weather in Budapest is normally sunny in the October, but turns rainy in November, the 'window' for sunny weather is one month.
