No sense waiting for 4:00 PM to state the obvious...
Weather forecasts are all indicating the conditions tonight
to be cloudy, windy, cold and wet. Once again, the event scheduled
for tonight has been
CANCELLED due to weather conditions.

My goodness, we certainly tried this year. All we can hope for is
that the weather will be more cooperative in 2016.

Jet Stream (updates automatically to latest available image)
    The Jet Stream affects astronomical "seeing" (steadiness of the air)
    If we're in a gray area, seeing will not be as good as in a white area.
    If we're in a white area, the shorter the arrows, the better.
