11/5/21: Socorro, NM, to Atlanta, GA, to Boston, MA

Yesterday was pleasant, though I spent the whole day inside.

This morning has been cold, partly cloudy and still.

Today, I will catch a morning flight from Albuquerque, NM, to Atlanta, GA, to Boston, MA, to attend a conference.

The NWS in Albuquerque, NM, forecasts (for Socorro, NM) a sunny day, with a high temperature of 76 F.  Winds will be from the northwest at 5 mph.

The NWS in Peachtree City, GA, forecasts (for Atlanta, GA) a partly sunny afternoon, with a high temperature of 55 F.  Winds will be from the east at 5-10 mph, gusting to 20 mph.

The NWS in Norton, MA, forecasts (for Boston, MA) a clear night, with a low temperature of 35 F.  The winds will be from the west at 3-6 mph.

The HRRR simulated reflectivity shows all of the showers and thunderstorms will remain to our south as we approach Atlanta. It should be clear skies the whole way.

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, which will likely not affect us on our flight.

I will post from Boston tomorrow.

Thank you for reading my post.
