Go for Rocket Fest 2015 May 16-17!|
Despite a very tricky weather forecast, we've found the conditions good enough for a launch this weekend, especially with Sunday looking well clear of any bad weather or high winds giving for some great rocketry conditions.
For Saturday we are expecting a varying altitude ceiling given cloud cover is expected, with a slight risk of rain around lunch time and a bit of an increase in wind speeds. Conditions should improve in the evening. For Sunday we are expecting excellent conditions all day.
