booming radio signal - as usual for Chris.
Q for the wx-wizard - Has there been any change to the convection area SE of New Cal on Sat/Sun? I intend to pass East of it on the way to Suva. Hoping for the windshift SE - E to get some easting to clear East of the convection from my current position on the way to Suva. My gribs indicate that it is changing daily.
