Rio Rancho, NM, to Orlando, FL.

Yesterday was cool and sunny in Socorro, but then became foggy and cold at night in Rio Rancho.

This morning has been cold, partly cloudy and still.

Today, I will catch a morning flight from Albuquerque, NM, to Houston, TX, to Orlando, FL.

The NWS in Albuquerque, NM, forecasts (for Albuquerque, NM) a sunny day, with a high temperature of 62 F.  Winds will be from the west at 5 mph.

The NWS in Houston, TX, forecasts (for Houston, TX) a cloudy afternoon, with a 50% chance of showers, and a high temperature of 53 F.  Winds will be from the north at 10 mph.

The NWS in Melbourne, FL, forecasts (for Orlando, FL) a cloudy night, with a 50% chance of showers, and a low temperature of 64 F.  The winds will be from the north at 10-15 mph, gusting to 20 mph.

The HRRR simulated reflectivity shows that we may see some showers as we approach Houston.

… and then a few more as we approach Orlando.

The Aviation Weather Center shows several areas along our route that require the use of Instrument Flight Rules (IFR), likely because of the fog and low clouds.  Near Orlando, there is some convection (CONV), though that might clear up by this evening.

I will post from Florida tomorrow.

Thank you for reading my post.
