Weather Update for 2/17 as of 5PM Saturday

Looking at the forecasts, TAF's and METAR's for the area it's not looking good for Sunday. I was hoping for some sun and breeze for Saturday afternoon so the field could dry a bit. That didn't happen so it's still a soggy situation out there. 

The TAF for tomorrow has the day starting under a 1,200' ceiling with that dropping to 800' by early afternoon. Rain is prediocted to crank up by 1 PM. Just doesn't look like a rocket flyin' kind of a day. 

Looking ahead to next week it's kind of a rain fest all week, save maybe Monday. At least a 50% chance on each day and some significant accumulation by Thursday, so next weekend is probably not going to be possible either (but we can live in hope of the weather folks being wrong). 

Sorry folks but weather is the one thing we can't fight.
