No Solo Today

I got a call from my CFI a few minutes ago.  Manassas is currently under IFR conditions, as are neighbouring airports, though it should clear up later today:

KHEF 161035Z AUTO 00000KT 1SM OVC011 21/20 A2996 RMK AO1
KHWY 161040Z AUTO 00000KT 1/4SM FG VV002 20/19 A2995 RMK AO2
KCJR 161040Z AUTO 00000KT M1/4SM FG OVC002 17/16 A2996 RMK AO2
KIAD 160952Z 00000KT 10SM BKN006 OVC012 22/22 A2995 RMK AO2 
I opted to fly tomorrow morning rather than try to wait it out.  I have 10 hours of dual time and 26 takeoffs/landings to date, not counting the demo flight.  If I can do 4 solid landings in one hour tomorrow (reaching 30), I will be at my school's minimums to solo.  My CFI said that if everything looked good on the dual flight, he would endorse my logbook, hop out of the airplane, and I would then do 3 takeoffs/landings on my own.
