Saturday looks hot & dry!

Last Sunday was fantastic.  I flew nearly out to Boulder Reservoir and back!

Here is my short XC flight.

Saturday’s forecast is dry & hot.  Regional map shows clear skies and high pressure over area. Local forecast show NE winds all day.  Thermal soaring forecast is excellent starting at 11:45AM with no over development forecast! Thermals to 957’/min. NBR   showing humidity at only 36% and light winds early.

Sunday looks cloudy!

Sunday looks partly cloud as a result of of cool front that passed by last night and seen on regional weather map Local forecast calls for light winds until noon.  Thermal soaring forecast is good but not starting till 12:45PM and only 590’/min!  No over development forecast! NBR showing light and variable winds and partly cloudy skies.

What will come first—rain or thermals? Yesterday no over development was forecast but it rained twice.

Sunny Sunday

Saturday was short and we got west winds by about 1PM.  Sunday looks longer.

Regional weather map shows clear skies and high pressure.  Local forecast shows easterly winds until late afternoon.  NBR showing light and variable winds early. Thermal soaring forecast   is excellent today—-1,400’/min—starting at 11:30AM but over development by 3PM! 20% chance of rain.

 

Sunday looks drier!

Regional Weather map shows high pressure dominating area.   Local weather forecast  shows  southeasterly winds in area.  Humidity is lower than yesterday but still very high at 70%.  Thermal soaring forecast is excellent—1,300’/min starting at 11:30 AM! Again they are calling for no over development but yesterday it did over develop. 20% chance of precipitation. I recommend you start early.

If you have a used entry level Ozone wing that you would like to upgrade, please contact me as I need them and production time for your new wing is only about 1 month.

Sunny Saturday

Regional Weather map shows high pressure and clear skies.  Local forecast is for easterly winds all day.  Humidity is 94% so thermals will be soft and slow to develop. Thermal soaring forecast is good—700’/min starting at 11:30AM and calling for no over development!  I find this suspicious with such high humidity!

20% chance of thunderstorms this PM.

Cold Front Saturday?

Regional weather map show passage of Canadian Cold Front. Already early—5AM– NE winds are consistent at NBR.

At 6AM no wind!  NBR showing cold front has already passed. Waiting till later.

Thermal Soaring forecast is excellent—-1,200’/min—-starting at 10:30 with over development at 3:00PM. Cloud cover will determine thermal development.

30% chance of thunderstorms this PM.
