Rain forecast for Monday.....

Been watching the weather forecasts for next week. Looks like rain for the rifle opener. I hope things change between now and then, as I am looking forward to taking the flintlock hunting. I hunt special regs so may be forced to take the shotgun if it does rain. I don't like deer hunting with a shotgun, but also don't like subjecting my flintlock to rain either. I'll have to make a choice I guess. Either way I'm not missing out on the opener.

I've been watching that forecast also. It has changed almost daily between mostly cloudy, snow, rain and rain/snow mix for the last 6 days. And will likely change again over the next couple days. Watch the forecast Sunday evening and you'll know what will happen...

Oh I don't doubt the forecast will change between now and Monday. I'm just hoping it just doesn't change for the worst. Its always a let down when you wait all year for a certain day, only to have the weather take a dump on you.

I too am hoping for some positive change in the forecast. I'll be hunting SWPA on Monday, but I'm planning to return home(central PA) after the hunt. I can handle a little rain when I'm out hunting, but I'm more concerned with having to drive 3 hrs home in possible ice/snow.

Why should Monday be any different than the rest of this year. I was talking today with my niece who is a meteorologist for the National Weather Service in Moon, near Pittsburgh. According to her, this year could possibly set a record here in Western Pa. as the wettest year ever.

Iím sick of it.

Long range for Monday along the Delaware River in NE PA indicates a day of rain. After many years of opening days of rain, this seasoned citizen will most likely stay inside with a good book or work on a powder horn and stir the soup from time to time.


Be safe, keep your powder as dry as you can, and aim small to miss small. Best of luck to all flintlockers!

Checked Wx forecast again this morning. Forecast now is chance of rain, percentage down to 40% from 80% last night.

They need to resurrect Jim Obrien from the dead. For those who don't know he was a local weather guy from channel 6 in Philly back in the late 70's early 80's (got killed sky diving ). That guy had a grainy satellite photo and a cartoon drawing of the united states and yet his forecasts were something like 96% accurate....These people today have all this technology yet couldn't predict where their arse will be an hour from now.....Go figure.
