A wet day with waves of mist, drizzle, and rain throughout the radar area.

Predictions:
National Weather Service says, "Snow. High near 33. Breezy, with a
northwest wind around 22 mph, with gusts as high as 38 mph. Chance of
precipitation is 100%. New snow accumulation of 1 to 3 inches possible."
This sounds less than ideal for a flight.
