    Also my experience. I had reasonably high hopes, and decided to spend
    the night alone at Malma.
    All in all, maybe 90% clouds before midnight. I went out to
    inspect the weather roughly every 30 minutes, and often found
    enough clear sky to make a prediction.
    Each time, I found all prepared points hidden by clouds,
    and more coming.
    A fine chance to recover USA 116, the stars were crisp at
    11 deg altitude (eta+pi Her) where it was to pass.
    3 min before the predicted pass they were covered in clouds,from the N.
    
    I had the telescope out in case I could find KH 9-16 on a
    near-zenith pass around 05:05 local time, but found the scope
    covered with 1 cm snow, and the sky with 100% clouds.
    
    Today, we had 4 cm more, and 100% clouds. -5 degrees C.
