Wash out!

Post by Wanderlust » Sun Sep 18, 2016 4:29 pm

Anyone else planning to be on the island week of the 25th? 2-3 inches of rain forecast Sat-Mon! I'm going to wait till Tuesday and if the forecast holds probably hit the eject button on this trip and head to Kentucky or Missouri. Don't mind a bit of rain, but...

Not sure I'd worry about a forecast one week out. The weather guys are pretty good for the next day or so, but more than a week they're relying on models 100%.

Well considering they already walked back all of it except a 1/4in of potential rain on Sunday, yeah I'd say you're right heheh.

Usually I feel ok planning around the forecast 6-7 days out, but that's a pretty huge change in the forecast within 12 hours. Haven't seem them go that wild before.
