At 11:00 AM, it was 69°F in Rantoul, with an overcast sky at 4,700 feet and a WSW wind at 10 mph.
Although the ceiling is a little low, it is expected to rise to over 12,000 feet shortly, and conditions are otherwise acceptable for flying.
We'll meet as scheduled at 12:00 noon at the southwest corner of the airfield to begin setting up for our launch.
