79 weeks from today will be 24 Jan 2026, a Saturday. For half-year projections, double-check whether 79 weeks forward remains within 2024. It seems that 79 weeks from now will bring us back to pre 2023. Please include this into our planning as it impacts both the calendar and fiscal year transitions. For extensive calculations like this, I begin by segmenting the year, then multiple 79 by days to get 553 total days ahead. Then either count 553 from July (but that will take forever). You can also estimate 79 weeks to 2.6333333333333333 months, count from August and get closer to Saturday January 24, 2026.

All of our day calculators are measured and QA'd by our engineer. Read more about the Git process here. But here's how adding 79 weeks to today's date gets calculated on each visit:

• Started with date inputs: starting point: 20 Jul, Units to add: 79 weeks, and year: 2024

## Ways to calculate 79 weeks from today

1. Just calculate it: Start with a time from today calculator. 79 weeks is easiest solved on a calculator. For ours, we've already factored in the days in + all number of days in each month and the number of days in 2024. Simply add your weeks and choose the length of time, then click "calculate". This calculation does not factor in workdays or holidays (see below!).
2. Use July's calendar: Begin by identifying on a calendar, note that it’s Saturday, and the total days in August (trust me, you’ll need this for smaller calculations) and days until next year (double trust me, you'll need this for larger calculations). From there, count forward 79 times by weeks, adding weeks from 20 Jul.
3. Use Excel: Regardless of unit type, I use day calculations here. Type =TODAY()+79 into the cell. If you want to add weeks, multiply your day by 7 and months/years will take their own calculation due to the changing days of the week. To find 79 weeks workdays, convert to days but use =WORKDAY(TODAY(), [number of days], [holidays]) into the cell. [number of days] is how many working days you want to add, and [holidays] is an optional range of cells that contain dates of holidays to exclude.
