10am-8pm tomorrow is heavy rain!
Wow. Lots of panic about some rain.
I've got a pakamac
@blueh_w tells me the FA have confirmed that rain means the tie ends after leg one.
Well I did see Max Crotchmar down 'The Octagon' earlier. He was in Mike Keen Sports buying some Sondico boots with long studs .... So reckon we'll be ok
I doubt we would cover the pitch, if it gets called off thats another 24 or 48 hours for our players to get fit.
Is there any lighting planned, just in case we go behind?
Given that it's at night, lighting may be required I feel. As for the rain, I'm planning to wear something waterproof.
I'm taking a brolly, so don't stand behind me
Not sure you guys are taking the possibility of the match being postponed or abandoned too seriously! As one who was accused last year of being a latterday Michael Fish, I hesitate to comment but there is certainly a risk if the forecast turns out to be accurate. Compacted dry soil is not the most absorbent substance. However, I understand that the pitch has been spiked (or whatever the term is for making lots of holes in it - aerated??)
I was that accuser micra but you proved to be correct at the time ...I agree with you , there is one hell of a lot of rain forecast and our pitch ain't in the best shape anyway
Hire one of those machines they use on cricket to clear water off pitch. Think it is called a blotter or something like that.
@AttitudeEra I have spoke to a FA insider too, who can also confirms that the tie has ended after one leg, due to the WeatherClause.
Don't worry guys. Forecasters have started to play down very significantly the amount of rain we are likely to get. The offending low pressure system now looks to be slipping in a more southeasterly direction towards northern France. Fingers crossed but it looks much less of a threat.
I work a 5 minute drive from Adams Park. Drizzled for much of the morning but nothing heavy like forecast. Looking like the pitch should hold up....touch wood.
Pouring down now.
Soft in the town centre, pubs filling up
Best to stay in the pub! don't wanna be getting wet
Next 3-4 hours look a bit dodgy but we were expecting something like 10 hours of heavy rain in the original forecast so it could have been much worse. Let's all keep everything crossed!
Heavy rain nothing special
Light drizzle - kids stuff. man up @micra
@kiscokid : "man up" ! Bloody cheek - I'm the one who has been trying to put a positive spin on the situation.
'@wwfcofficial: We have no concerns at all about the pitch - the rainfall at this rate is helping the pitch with no signs of waterlogging at all. #WYCvPLY' - From the official twitter account. Dont worry people.
Sounds good to me. Everything now uncrossed.
Now let's go and win it. COYB
Rain affected m25 though. Sat nav eta currently 7:20, running shoes ready
Only a drizzle...bet its persistenting down in the cars heading South west
