Weather forecast is for cold but dry through the weekend. After a rainy Thursday, rain should end by Friday morning. Temperatures will drop to near freezing at night. Friday's high could reach 60 (16C), but Sat will be cooler and Sun likely won't get above the mid 40's (7 or 8 C). Of course this is southwest Ohio, and the forecast can change quickly (and reality even more rapidly!) but for now we are hoping for a dry weekend.

Probably safe to expect some mud.

Is it known whether sprint maps will be 1:4000 or 1:5000? Thanks.

Sprint maps will be printed at 1:5000.

The latest forecast has the rain slipping later into the week - 50% chance through Friday. Be prepared for the possibility of wet conditions.
