Oh Muy Gawd!!!!
NAM says :
6k agl top of useable lift!
Throw in wide spread 500-600fpm lift averages.
Ground winds light from the west.
Winds aloft light from the west.
Bouyance/Shear at a 10 out of 10 (thermals NOT blown apart)
Surface temps near 70F

But if you wanna be pessimistic, GFS says:

Top of lift may be 3k.
Average lift of 400-500fpm
Ground winds a little stonger, but still light and from a SW direction.
Winds aloft could be double or triple what NAM reports (15-20). (Record XC day?)
GFS also has the temps about 5 cooler.

If I can find away to get in the air, I'm thinking of trying to fly to Zanesville, maybe Cambridge if I have time!
