Fog Cancels Flight Lesson…

Well once again my 9.00 am flight lesson was cancelled due to poor weather conditions. Jeremy called me this morning on 03/24/2012 at 8.26 am and said that he had seen the weather and it was foggy with low cloud ceiling. Of course I knew this as I had already checked the weather soon after I awoke at 2.45 am to go to the gym. I’m assuming the weather is going to be the same tomorrow also and the class will be cancelled again. Here’s today’s weather though:

METAR text:

KMIC 241253Z 35004KT 1/4SM FG VV002 10/09 A2993 RMK AO2 SLP137 T01000094

Conditions at:

KMIC (MNPLS/CRYSTAL , MN, US) observed 1253 UTC 24 March 2012


10.0°C (50°F)


9.4°C (49°F) [RH = 96%]

Pressure (altimeter):

29.93 inches Hg (1013.6 mb)
[Sea-level pressure: 1013.7 mb]

0.25 miles (0.40 km)


indefinite ceiling with vertical visibility of 200 feet AGL

FG (fog)

From the above information it can be seen that the weather conditions are a considerably worse than they were yesterday; clearly well below the minimum VFR requirements. Today, there’s also low visibility along with low cloud ceiling and fog. Let’s see what happens tomorrow, even though I’m expecting the same, but there’s always hope. 😀
