Boomershoot 2008 weather update

Last night I talked to a couple people that live within two miles of the Boomershoot site. They said that over the last few days the temperature got up to 70F and the wind was blowing. The snow just disappeared and the ground dried out enough that a few farmers were out in their fields on Sunday.

Then there was a 40 degree drop in temperature between Sunday and Monday and it snowed.

The weather and conditions for Boomershoot still could be anything. Current forecasts for Friday, Saturday, and Sunday of the event are for cloudy, rain, and rainy. I have no idea what the difference is between “rain” and “rainy” but that is what the website says.

I won’t have much faith in the forecasts until we get within about three or four days of the event. In the mean time participants should be prepared for any type of weather except tornadoes (extremely rare but not unheard of in this part of the country) and hurricanes.

  1. I deal with weather quite a bit as a trained and active spotter, and can tell you from experience that any forecast over 48 hours out is SWAG mode (sorta wild azz guess) and anything over 72 hours is just a plain WAG.
