I was planning on just going out and flying around with no particular destination this afternoon (its currently 5PM) but the current radar in my area looks a little iffy. I'm curious to see what others thoughts are about it. I'm located at the black dot due east of Tyler on the attached radar image. The prig chart shows a low pressure passing right over us with the associated squall line. When I look at the radar loop it does appear to be building but mostly building away from my airport. Current condition are VFR with only a 9 knot wind. I contemplated departing and flying around north of the airport but have ultimately decided to wait it out and see how it develops. My concerns are twofold. One, there is some substantial convective activity <20 miles from my airport and I'm a concerned about wind shear and turbulence. Two, I am concerned that while I'm out flying the convective activity may envelope my airport making it impossible to get back in. What are your thoughts? Am I wimping out or does this seem like a sound decision? I know ultimately I have to feel comfortable about flying but I want to see what some more experienced minds think about my reasoning.
