.....able to give us an update on weather? Does it look set to rain:scared: ???

Sep 6th, 2008, 01:16 PM
I live 20 mins from Flushing, it's incredibly cloudy and humid but at the moment there's no rain. I suspect they may get part of the first ATP match in, but anything else... :nervous:

I live about a half hour away and it POURED last night. It's wet and windy right now, and basically cloudy right now though the sun keeps trying to peak through. The first men's match will def start.

Sep 6th, 2008, 02:47 PM
:woohoo: at least thats a start :D

I'm not from New York but from all of the forecasts I've seen, I would guess that some of the Nadal-Murray match will go ahead before the rain hits, and the worst of the weather is set to arrive at about 6pm NY time :(

I've seen that wind will be in the 70s as well :o

Sep 6th, 2008, 02:53 PM
its not that bad but still damp and gross

Sep 6th, 2008, 02:55 PM
will the rain be worse today or tonight?? i'm preparing for the final to be played tomorrow

Sep 6th, 2008, 02:57 PM
I'm only 20 mins away too, and so far no rain...just cloudy with the sun trying to come out. Hopefully the matches go thru.

i'm looking outside right now and it's not looking so good.

Sep 6th, 2008, 03:58 PM
so far its just muggy and cloudy..Not raining though

Its weird that Hanna hit North and South Carolina but it sooo nice outside. The sun is out, but its not too hot, hardly any wind at all. :lol:

I live on Long island and the sun is trying to come out. Rafa V Murray has been moved to armstrong!

Sep 6th, 2008, 04:41 PM
Well its cloudy and humid right now, but rain is probably less than 1 hour away. And then its pretty much supposed to rain hard the rest of the day and evening. So I suspect that they might finish the Federer/Djokovic match, though I even doubt that. Nadal and Murray will not finish and they will be pushed till tomorrow as will the Women's Final.

it DID pour last night.. right now its like soup outside. disgusting really. the air is so thick and humid. its completely overcast in brooklyn, like ten mins from the tennis stadium. its still pretty bright out, but it feels like rain is imminent. im praying for tonight's final.

Sep 6th, 2008, 05:33 PM

Sep 6th, 2008, 05:38 PM

are you saying that god is a man? or perhaps a smitten woman?

Sep 6th, 2008, 06:54 PM
i guess the rain has finally come??

Sep 6th, 2008, 07:26 PM
It is pouring right now and will not stop until midnight.

The Mets (who play right across from the USTA BJK Tennis Center) postponed their game this morning knowing the rain was going to come.

its raining and pretty windy. im sitting right next to my window and my monitor is all wet from the rain blowing in. it actually feels so nice after such a muggy few days. and the screen looks like a rainbow, with all the little rain spatters illuminated.

Sep 6th, 2008, 07:59 PM
pouring...I am glad feds match got through..Anyways the match has been cancelled already right?

Sep 6th, 2008, 10:09 PM
the rain just stopped, im in queens now. hmm... maybe they jumped the gun?

Sep 6th, 2008, 10:34 PM
The wind is still pretty strong, not impossible, definetly playable right now.

But theres a very good chance for it to rain again.
