    until it be

    Which one is correct and why?
    1. I won't travel until it will be warm enough.
    2. I won't travel until it be warm enough.
    3. I won't travel until it is warm enough.
    1 is incorrect because we don't use future structure in a time clause.
    However I couldn't find any reason for rejecting either 2 or 3.
    Thanks,

    Re: until it be

    3 is correct. We use the simple present there, not some sort of subjunctive "be."
