Rain chances for Saturday -- are we ready?

Postby DanBackslide » Thu Apr 12, 2012 5:05 pm

The forecast for Saturday has changed again. Rain chances are running 40-60%.

Is everything ready for us to move indoors? How many people will need to be on hand Fri night/Sat morning to move things around?

The Art Shanty & The Yurt Stay.

Food becomes a bit of a problem but I can adapt at least the Hot dogs.

It definitely gets tighter but everything should fit (just).

I'm running the options now.

Late Friday after the show and early sat as many as I can get of course. But 5 or 6 should be enough.

Looks like we might be okay being outdoors for the afternoon. The evening might be a little more exciting, with severe weather possible.

From the NWS forecast discussion:

...WEAK RIDGING WILL MOVE IN OVERNIGHT
AND FOR PART OF SATURDAY. DRY WEATHER IS FORECAST ALONG WITH A
DECREASE IN CLOUDS. THIS WILL LEAD TO A WARM SATURDAY AFTERNOON
WITH HIGHS NOW FORECAST TO EACH THE UPPER 60S TO LOWER 70S. THIS MAY
STILL BE TOO LOW IF THE INCREASE IN CLOUDINESS DURING THE
AFTERNOON HOLDS OFF LONGER THAN FORECAST.
[...]
SOME SHOWERS AND
THUNDERSTORMS WILL LIKELY PUSH INTO SOUTHERN MN DURING THE LATE
AFTERNOON HOURS. AS THE WARM FRONT MOVES INTO THE CWA SATURDAY
NIGHT...SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS WILL BECOME MORE WIDESPREAD.
THERE SEEMS TO BE A CREDIBLE THREAT FOR SEVERE STORMS DURING THE
NIGHT FROM THE TWIN CITIES ON WEST AND SOUTH...WITH HIGH EMPHASIS
ACROSS SOUTHWEST AND SOUTH CENTRAL MN.

But I'm still moving more inside then the optimal plan.
