A note to participants, the weather conditions are forecast to be IFR. Here is a snippet of the 103 PM EST, Thursday Forecast Discussion referencing Saturday’s weather:

Quote
.SHORT TERM /FRIDAY NIGHT THROUGH SATURDAY NIGHT/...
An Arctic high will combine with light winds to produce very
chilly temperatures Friday night into Saturday morning. We went
3-5 degrees below the already cold NBM guidance, which appears
underdone. The fly in the ointment is temperatures may begin to
rise prior to sunrise when winds shift to the south ahead of an
approaching storm.

A cyclone moving through the northern portion of the Great Lakes
will spread snow into NY and PA on Saturday. The snow will mix
with sleet at times over the central and southern forecast area.
To the north, enhanced lift and ice crystal production suggests
snow will be moderate to heavy, especially over Northern Oneida
County.

Snow will continue Saturday night with a general 2 to 5 inches
forecast across NY and PA. Amounts will be much higher over
Oneida County, where totals could exceed 6-8 inches near Rome
and 10-15 inches along the northern border.

In light of this, pilots may fly VFR in their sim if they prefer it, as long as they acknowledge that there will likely be pilots flying with real weather. If you’re flying with real weather, you do not have to do anything different; however, if you are flying in different weather, please add the following note in your remarks so controllers can apply appropriate separation: SIM WX VFR
