Guys

If you are having your fireworks this weekend please be aware of the potentially extreme weather conditions. If you do decide to proceed please take all precautions.

Rain

Ensure your fireworks are covered until the very last minute to prevent water damage which could result in misfire. If you are firing one by one then only have the firework out being used. If you are setting your display out for quick fire then simply user bin liners or plastic bags to cover your fireworks and take them off as you light them.

Wind

Check the wind direction and strength. Consider your spectators, buildings, trees etc as aerial fireworks in particular can be pushed off course. If there are erratic strong gusts as apposed to consistent wind speed I world strongly suggest you reschedule.
Gusts are unpredictable changing direction and speed without warning.

Most of all take care and have a great night.

I find that if you set up your fireworks with the audience's backs facing the prevailing wind then displaying in very windy weather isn't a problem;it's the fallout dropping on people, to me at least, that would be the main concern. Anyway a bit of wind blowing towards the fireworks is good;it carries fallout safely away and clears any smoke;)
