I appreciate your input. Intellicast and National Weather call for clear Wednesday night. But, now I'm concerned about all the smoke pouring in from our local mountains and Santa Rosa Area. The air quality has taken a significant "turn" for the worse this afternoon. I checked Soledad this morning and it was good ... now it's unhealthy with high particulate rating. I will check all in the morning and cancel my intentions if necessary.
Thanks!

yeah, its incredibly hazy and overcast here in santa cruz today, from the new Bear Fire that busted out last night above Boulder Creek.

looks like my rain forecast has both been downgraded and delayed some.   there likely WILL be some rain, but not as much as originally expected and a day or so later too.
