Hi, new request.

jetBlue leaving La Guardia Thursday AM at 7:30 AM to get into Palm Beach at 10:30.

Front is supposed to weaken as it hits the coast on Thursday, but you know, I am definitely a bit nervous on this. as always any insight is appreciated.

Hey, just bumping it up hopefully you can do a forecast tonight. Not sure how to read it. Looks like it can be smooth or not.

Weird, it does seem contradictory, doesn't it?

I'm leaning towards saying there might be some bumps (light, maybe moderate, but I think just light) for a while out of LGA, but smoothing out in general towards PBI. I think it's good though you are on the early flight, before the weather heads over. On second glance, I feel pretty good about that guess. I would almost say you have even a chance of a mostly smooth flight, but I'm leaning towards a few bumps just for a little while.

Enjoy the warm weather in PBI, and a report back would be helpful.

Great, thanks. I will post how the flight did, and of course request a forecast for my return trip.

Pretty smooth on take off, consistent light chop from about Philly to NC until we went over water. Probably a bit more chop than expected, but the pilots were taken by surprise too ;-). The flight crew said it would be smooth but they kept apologizing fr the bumpy ride!

Well you'll get my request for the return flight on Tuesday soon.

Thanks.

Sounds like a bad commercial. 4 out of 5 airline pilots agree with Turbulence Forecast.

but the pilots were taken by surprise too ;-). The flight crew said it would be smooth but they kept apologizing fr the bumpy ride!
