Chance of rain isn't stopping me. I'm traveling clear across the country for this one. I'm there rain or shine. Heck, let snow for all I care, I've had enough of it the last few weeks it won't even phase me.
I think also that if it sprinkle, or a couple short showers will help. When I went in Oct. I was in heaven, it was about 9:00 at night, after waiting an hour in line, I got in the back seat, almost pitch black and it had been sprinkinling for a couple minutes and this was the morphing of the kick butt Ghostrider in the day to the insane GhostRider, it seemed to fling your around so much more, the Airtime was so much better and the speed was insane.
I hope we do get a light sprinkle or quick shower. Keeps the crowds away and greases up ghostrider. For that I can sacrifice perfect weather. Besides which, everything is booked and paid for so i'm going even with a downpour.

Let's hope it doesn't rain too much. Knott's has a very annoying policy requiring shut down of all coasters in the rain. If it rains too hard, say good bye to ERT until it stops. Rain did shut down a previous Solace Ghostrider ERT much to everyone's dismay.
If we get anything more than a light drizzle, you can kiss Xcelerator goodbye. However, anyone familiar with So-Cal weather can attest to the fact that a rainy forecast can often mean gray skies and 65 degress temperatures in most areas.

Now if you had signed up for the weekend package at the Radisson you wouldn't have to worry about this. From what I've gathered we'll hit just about everything Friday night and then some. By the way it's raining like you know what here in San Diego now. Should clear up by tomorrow, though.GregLeg, seeing as that both Belmont Babe and myself are former Pittsbughers, we'll have to get together (we didn't connect at KennyKon in 2000, unfortunately).
You're right Moosh, Accuweather can be pretty darn, well, accurate. Let's hope that this time they are right on the money! I'd hate to have evening ERT cancelled or postponed because of rain. What would happen in that instance? Anyone know? Would they simply postpone and wait until the rain stopped, or would they cancel all-together?

Ghostrider ERT at the first Winter Solace ended early due to rain. The park handed out complimentary tickets good for a day at the park valid until Dec 31st of that year. Whether they do the same this year remains to be seen.
To be honest with you I'm more worried about Xcelerator ERT on Friday and Saturday. The ride has a nasty habit of going down in the late afternoon.
