Rain likely?
« on: October 19, 2018, 08:42:21 AM »
Well, planned to leave for BB Saturday and spend a week out there.
Multiple forecasts say rain rain rain. I don’t want to spend my time cold and wet, but also have a hard time trusting forecasts. What y’all say?

Forecast for the week after looks great, if you can postpone.

I wish, but vacation has already been put in the books. I may have to think about heading to Arkansas

It's not going to be real cold....lows in the 50s.

I'd go.

Arkansas is awful nice. Just ask dprather or Jalco. On the other hand, the cold wet weather is general all over south-central U.S. right now. Some of the nicer hiking areas in Arkansas involve a lot of water crossings and they might be tricky in light of all the rain.
