The news just said afternoon he will arrive. Although, at that time there will be a winter storm hitting the area. So I don't know if that will effect his plans or not. Winds are supposed to be 18 mph NNE and gusts up to 30mph with snow and sleet. Not a very good day for flying into CLT, but I am sure if he is indeed coming, the airport will be ready. The news did say he plans to leave after 7pm.

The TFR (Temporary Flight Restriction) imposed on the Charlotte-Douglas County area, which is 30 mile radius, by the FAA is from 2:00 PM until 7:40 PM. I guess Bush will land about 2:30 or so.
