Hi Guys,

Anyone up for some IMC flying this evening. Conditions are perfect!

TAF CYKZ 031738Z 0318/0406 11008KT P6SM OVC020 TEMPO 0318/0321 OVC025
 FM032100 10010KT 3SM -SHRA BR BKN006 OVC012 TEMPO 0321/0403 6SM
 -SHRA BR SCT006 OVC012
 BECMG 0401/0403 23006KT
 FM040300 25008KT P6SM BKN015

The FPV guys would be in heaven with their head-up displays and virtual avionics displays!  8)

IMC, are you kidding?
Ceiling is 600ft, plenty high for flying and visibility is 3 miles - further then our radios work.

 You're so right Marc.  I should have scaled the TAF proportionate to most of the RC aircraft at TEMAC, say 1:6.  That would give us:

TAF CYKZ 031738Z 0318/0406 11008KT 1SM OVC003 TEMPO 0318/0321 OVC004
 FM032100 10010KT 0.5SM -SHRA BR BKN001 OVC002 TEMPO 0321/0403 1SM
 -SHRA BR SCT001 OVC002
 BECMG 0401/0403 23006KT
 FM040300 25008KT 1SM BKN002

And with a little silicone (5-minute epoxy for @Frank v B ) to pot the electronics I'm sure the -SHRA would be no problem at all!!   8)

I'm okay with the alphabet soup, except "IMC"...what's that?...AND, Andy, why is your last message emoticon wearing sunglasses? TAF says sunglasses are unlikely to be needed!
