Rig for the forecast or for the conditions?

Nuclear session today at Wolf. The forecast predicted 30s from the SSW, perfect Wolf, but when I got there the wind was mere 15 mph, enough for the 6.5 but not for the 5.2. What would you have done? Rig for the wind in front of you or for the forecast wind? Re-rigging is not an option here, we are too lazy for that...
This time I rigged for the forecast, and it paid off. The wind picked up to the point that I could not even hold my 5.2. Once in a while I get it right...
By the way my mast exploded, my gear is disintegrating... Thanks Steve for letting me borrow yours.
