Weather forecast for Saturday is looking like rain.

Like very strong likelihood of rain.

This match will NOT be fired in the rain.

I will wait until 0845 to call it off for certain. That call will be made on the firing line at the range.

If the weather looks "iffy" at 0845, I will drive to the top of the hill to get cell-signal, and review the Doppler radar.

If it appears that rain is imminent, I will call off the match, even if it is not actively raining at the firing line.

That's the best I can do ya.

At the risk of jinxing...

It looks like the rain forecast is dwindling.

If it looks like the rain is ABOUT TO STOP, or about to pass, I may delay the actual start-time of the match by an hour or so.

Ideally, it won't rain at all.
But we won't know that until we're on the firing line at 0845.
