    Looks very nice, except as you near MKE, light to moderate possible.

    Thanks for the forecast! Here's how it went:

    Leaving Seattle was fairly smooth, there was some low-lying cloud, making takeoff just a tiny bit bumpy, nothing scary at all.

    Most of the first half of the flight was fairly smooth with occasional patches of very light turbulence-- something only the most anxious flyer would be nervous about.

    The last half had occasional periods where the pilot illuminated the seatbelt sign, but it never really got very rough at all. When we began descending, it started to get just a little bit of "chop" and the pilot came on to apologize and tell us that we would descend down to smoother air at 20,000 feet. The turbulence map didn't show too much turbulence (I had the internet on in-flight), but the high-level weather map showed that we were on the edge of a storm system. As we descended towards Milwaukee, there was cloud cover and it was lightly raining. Because of the thicker cloud cover, the descent was also mildly bumpy.

    So, the forecast was basically right-on. Thanks again for your work!
