I was getting ready to pack up, but from the west side of Phoenix the 
sky does not look promising. Last night I thought was going to be 
good and it was clear until sunset when clouds can in from the east 
not west. Many times I have seen winds change and while clear to the 
west the winds swirled around and came from the east bringing lots of 
clouds. These present clouds are not big solid types but more spread 
out and flimsy. My gut feeling is they will be around after dark and 
even increase.

I'll check again in a couple of hours before making a final decision.
