Could you tell me if there is any difference in meaning or usage between "four week from today" and "in four weeks"? For example:

What are you guys doing four weeks from today?

What are you guys doing in four weeks?

I cannot see any difference between the two. If there is any, could you tell me which one is more common?

Four weeks from today implies 'in exactly 28 days' time', while in four weeks could be less exact.


"A week from today" (idiom) means "in one week".


Therefore, "four weeks from today" and "in four weeks" are synonymous and interchangeable, IMHO.

  • I would agree with Kate’s answer: four weeks from today means exactly 28 days.
