The latest Metar at 11:50 local time

2013/09/25 10:50 EGVN 251050Z 09002KT 1200 BR BKN002 16/15 Q1011 AMB BECMG 3000 BR SCT006 YLO1

AMB and YLO1 indicate the cloud state. I would say 13:30 local time would be a goer (just!). The TAF previously suggests that might be ok.

The wind (what there is of it) is still from the East.

A lot of milling about going on! 18:00 is the latest arrival time allowed, 14:00-14:30 seems to be favourite at the mo
