Any prognosticators out there want to take a crack at it? Sounds like pretty heavy rain overnight Friday and possible flooding and cloudy early Saturday with low wind. Cliffs pretty wet / drippy? OK late morning or early afternoon?

These guys have been doing very well these past few seasons getting their Hudson Valley forecasts spot on.

Do you request a second opinion on a weather forecast? Why? Don\'t you think the one on this website is as good as any?

Thanks for the link Rickster.

Oenophore, sorry to bother you. Was my question drowning out all of the other discussions here?

Yes, I can look at a forecast. No, I haven\'t looked at the one on this site actually since I go straight to the forums here. At any rate I wasn\'t asking for a forecast, but opinions on the expected impact of the forecast on the cliffs. I live hours away and don\'t have the regular experience with how the weather turns out that locals would.

It\'s not going to be an outbreak of sunshine once the rain stops. I think the cliffs will be wet Saturday for sure, especially if you\'re looking at sub 5.8 routes. But maybe wet holds don\'t bother you.

FWIW, it turned out way better than I expected! I opted for a later drive up but it was pretty nice conditions and I probably could have kept to my original plan. A little wetness in places but plenty easy to find open, dry rock or routes where the seeping wasn\'t a big deal.
