Boourns! That high pressure system didn’t stay over Ontario as long as I’d hoped – quasistationary my ass!

In anycase the TAF for YKZ this morning:

TAF CYKZ 141143Z 141224 VRB03KT P6SM FEW100 SCT250 FM1500Z 17010KT P6SM FEW040 BKN150 BKN250 FM1700Z 21012G22KT P6SM BKN050 OVC120 TEMPO 1824 P6SM -SHRA BKN020 OVC050 PROB30 1924 2SM TSRA BR BKN020CB RMK NXT FCST BY 18Z=

My planned departure for the short x-country was 20:30UTC. For those of you that cant decode the TAF, among other things it says:

18:00 – 24:00 UTC: Light Rain Showers, Broken 2000′, Overcast 5000′.

30% Chance at 19:00 – 24:00 UTC: 2 miles visibility Thunderstorms, Mist, Broken at 2000′ with Cumulonumbus.

In other words… rain 😉

I have rescheduled my short x-country to Wednesday.
