The weather

Well the event is indoors of course, but the weather outside can affect travellers.
I thought I would post the forecast here. Geneva is near lake Erie and snow can be an issue this time of year, but we always hope for the best. Of course the Spire Institute is right off the interstate so it's easy to get to.

It will be interesting to see how the forecast changes each day.

Yesterday (Sat Dec 1) the forecast for Friday Dec 7th showed Rain with a chance of snow, highs in the mid 40's and lows in the high 20's

Today (Sun Dec 2) the forecast is considerable better:
Friday Dec 7th shows Cloudy - high of 53, low of 39
Saturday Dec 8th shows Cloudy - high of 45, low of 32

Yeah really, for sure! - Well, the weather outside won't affect our flying, but can be of some concern to travellers. 2 years ago a blizzard arrived on the Sunday of the event. This year - that won't happen, it looks pretty good so far!

MONDAY'S FORECAST for THIS WEEKEND:

FRIDAY - Cloudy, 50 high, 46 low

SATURDAY - Partly Cloudy, 50 high, 37 low

SUNDAY - Rainy - 47 high, 36 low


TUESDAY'S UPDATED FORECAST FOR THIS WEEKEND:

FRIDAY - Rainy, 52 high, 48 low

SATURDAY - Cloudy, 56 high, 39 low

SUNDAY - Cloudy - 47 high, 37 low

Seems about right Themudduck, wait 24 hours, it may change again. You all have a great time. I wish I could be there. Just can't afford it.

Fly a flight for me.

has the same feeling, the weather will certainly effect the speed, and also may bring some bad things.
