I think the effect will be that no one will be affected as there does not appear to be much chance that the weather during that period is going to be conducive flying.

I affect complete indifference.

Last time it looked as though we would be affected I rang the phone number on the NOTAM and spoke to a squaddie who told me they had packed up for the week and all gone home.

It was a Tuesday morning.

Heh old fella, don't you know the word number has been superseded in this context. The correct word to use, by popular demand, is amount!

Not that I'll be becoming fashionable at my time of life after years of not being. :wink:

Easy to remember from my schooldays.
'You can't count an amount'. When referring to people etc.

A large amount of people attended. About 35 tons.
It may have been less' but was probably fewer. :)
