A forecast of storms or their probability requires an alternate unless itís endorsed with tempo or inter.

Letís also think of it practically. Thereís a big cell at 8nm on the centreline of the most into wind runway. Itís affecting arrivals. The sequence slows. Youíre held until they can slot you in.

The only time youíd disregard this is on an ETOPS flight. As long as the wx conditions are above landing minima, youíre good.
