Very interesting and it transpires that many of the charts are available under the national weather service meteorological development lab tabs which underlay the top level NWS graphic weather map, useful links for X country weather assessment or snapshot. I learn something every day

Todd - thanks for continuing to post these updates. We're coming in from the north-east and the movement of this weather system will leave us with a potential to get in by segmenting our trip, overnighting in Sault Ste Marie to let the worst of it pass Friday night.

Really appreciate you sharing these links, and, of course, Scott doing these videos.

I am missing my daily briefing fix!

This weather seems to be gonna put a major damper on my Saturday plans and at this point it does not look much better for Sunday.

I am a get there early and leave on Thursday or Friday morning kind of Airventure participant....

What's everyone else from the South East planning at this point?

I am . close to calling an audible and making the drive. Such a shame since the rest of the week is looking good along with the return trip period.

Over here in the Memphis area, I am flying up Sat morning and spending the night in Prairie Du Chien, WI and plan to fly into the show Sunday morning early. We'll see.

Wait what! No analysis today?

I have waited all day to watch the next installment only to login and see. . . Nada! Man real bummer. Well I guess I will go explore the WX maps on my own.

Live Long And Prosper! 🖖🏻

All I can tell you is that the forecast for Saturday is looking better, at least on

So, I'm on the VFR bob and weave plan.

Yeah, that. RV time equates to capability to go half way around the country to get where you want to go. Done that many times. "...3hr flight perfectly executed in 12hrs of flying... landing the destination.

Poke - prod - , stay safe, make wise decisions.
