Need to make a sign that the client can write on and withstand the rain / weather

Hey guys

I've been asked to produce a sign for a site, the client has requested that they are able to write on it, it must withstand the rain/weather but easily removable with a wipe of a cloth.

Any ideas how I can make one? I'm confident i've seen these done but i've never tried or even been asked before.

Thanks

Metamark and others do a whiteboard laminate which can be used over any normal printed surface, im not sure how good the whiteboard pens would be in wet weather but fits the other criteria.

Chalkboard pens wipe off normal vinyl and seam to last OK outside.

Any weather concerns use a Chinagraph pencil. Worked well on the bridge at sea.
