Catching the next cold front!

Thursday afternoon saw a cold front passage with excellent ridge soaring potential. Unmentioned in weather forecast it passed by about 11AM with strong NE flow.  I watched several pilots effortlessly soar around before I caught a ride to the drop off site. My launch and climb was easy but it took about 10 minutes to reach the North end of ridge in a strong head wind but climbing continuously to 4oo’ over. I then boated around for 1/2 hour.

Friday shows not cold front passage either.  Local forecast shows light easterly flow.

Thermal soaring forecast is poor but I see sunshine and a clear sky!  NBR is light early but watch my Sunday flight while waiting to catch the next cold front!
