Roy, As a regular visitor to the area, I would strongly recommend not putting faith in the long (or even too much in the short) term forecast. Because the area is backed by mountains, the normal weather (coming from the west) comes in and rises up over the mountains. So south of the mountains, is normally different to the main forecast (even in terms of cloud cover). The same, but different, with weather from other directions.

My suggestion ... don't worry too much about the forecast ... unless it's really bad.

Hi Lino..

I never worry bout the weather
I just bite the bullet, come hell
or high water, I'll be there in all
My glory..
As Michael Murphy said, there is
loads to do should the weather not
be on our side..

Cheers Roy

If the worst comes to the worst, it will be great to get together with people who love astronomy, even if we are unlucky enough to get no observing, it will still be a great weekend.

Programming today is a race between software engineers striving to build bigger and better programs, and the universe trying to produce bigger and better idiots. So far, the universe is winning.
