Rio Rancho, NM, to Pittsburgh, PA

Yesterday was hot, and we received none of the storms that the southeastern part of the state received.

This morning has been warm, hazy and still.

Today, we will catch an afternoon flight from Albuquerque, NM, to Milwaukee, WI, to Pittsburgh, PA.

The NWS in Albuquerque, NM, forecasts (for Rio Rancho, NM) a cloudy day, with a 90% chance of showers and thunderstorms, and a high temperature of 57 F.  The winds will be from the east at 5-10 mph.

The NWS in Milwaukee, WI, forecasts (for Milwaukee, WI) a mostly clear night, with a  low temperature of 35 F.  Winds will be from the north at 5 mph.

The NWS in Pittsburgh, PA, forecasts (for Pittsburgh, PA) a mostly cloudy night, with a low temperature of 35 F.  Winds will be from the northwest at 7-11 mph.

The HRRR simulated reflectivity shows that we will be attempting to take off just ahead of heavy precipitation.  I bet we get our flight delayed…

The Aviation Weather Center shows some turbulence here in New Mexico due to the convection we have had all morning.

I will post from Pittsburgh tomorrow.

Thank you for reading my post.
