Yes, I’ll be out today and
Wednesday. I’ll also see if I can get the new member out for a
couple of flights. Also, with all the rain we had the grass is
growing again, maybe we can get some mowing done as well. 16
flights on Sunday. It was a good practice and training day.
Patchy to areas of shallow fog at outlying airports early this morning will dissipate by 13Z-14Z. It's possible RFD has sharply fluctuating visibility before that time if some of the nearby fog seen on satellite expands slightly before dissipating. A backdoor cold front will push into far northeast Illinois by 14Z, turning winds northeast to east along with a quick uptick to around 10 kt. A few gusts to 15-16 kt are possible through the morning with this. Along this front will be scattered to broken stratus/stratocumulus clouds. Confidence has increased some in a period of broken MVFR this morning at ORD and MDW so have included in their TAFs. Winds this afternoon will remain easterly over Chicago with any stratus lifting to cumulus. Concentrated smoke from western North America fires is drifting high aloft over the area early this morning and likely will much of today. This is expected to remain at a high enough altitude to not impact any low-level aviation and it may not have impacts to aviators aloft either, but just wanted to note that. Winds will turn toward due south late tonight and be south- southwest increasing in speed fairly quickly Tuesday morning. MTF

Another nice day at the field. Only 6 flights but a productive day as the season counts down. Next scheduled day should be Wednesday.

I plan on starting Wednesday at 9 and should be there all day. Anyone else?

I plan to come out Wednesday and I might have a friend stop by for a ride.

I’ll be there as well as Thursday Friday and Saturday.
Weather permitting I’ll try to out fly Lincoln 😁 if my bladder can go that long.— Don

I’ll be out tomorrow by 12:00 or 12:30 if I could get a training flight in help out for a bit.
