NEW YORK (TheStreet) -- The 10-day forecast for Manhattan indicates that the freak snowstorm we had a couple of weeks ago isn't likely to be repeated soon. The weather will be sunny, with a chance of rain only on the 16th.I'm beginning a column on the Occupy Wall Street demonstrations with the weather report because it's come down to that. Weather is the greatest challenge that the OWS faces -- not a pepper-spraying, barricade-happy, maddeningly inconsistent New York City Police Department. It's not Mayor Bloomberg or a long-suffering landlord. It's the vicissitudes of weather, and the fact that this populist movement is in danger of withering away unless the demonstrators show a bit more foresight.
