If the weather is foggy, and you can't see the impact berms, it is NOT SAFE to shoot. If you look at this weather station and the humidity level is about 90% or higher, the club is fogged in. We are working on getting a weather camera set up so you will be able to take a look at the current range conditions. We are making progress on getting our weather station back online, and are hopeful it will be back operational soon.
