Ok, so the chance of rain seems to be dropping rapidly for tomorrow and then Sunday. What're we looking at for location? Anyone wanna carpool from aurora or I can pick up along the way... Michigan City or da Have?

Just for any one who will go out tomorrow. Be safe! These are not the weather conditions for any beginners! Lake is getting colder plus the windchill will not help either.
NOAA still says 90% of rain, weather.com 82%. Create an average and pull your conclusion from there. When in doubt stay at home and wax your snowboard or skies for the coming season. For who is going out please share some wind pictures!!!! :D

NOAA forecast:
Showers and thunderstorms, mainly after 7am. Some of the storms could produce heavy rainfall. High near 65. Breezy, with a south wind 15 to 20 mph, with gusts as high as 30 mph. Chance of precipitation is 90%. New rainfall amounts between a half and three quarters of an inch possible.

Man, wind dropped from the 20s to single digits at both waukegan and kenosha reading 8-10kts now...was hoping for some overnight sustainable winds for a nice DP session....so much for that.
