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.

Sunday looks sunnier and stronger!

Saturday was short with clouds and over development coming quickly.  I was only able to get my Delta 3 600′ over but Larry got his Delta 3 higher and was able to fly over to Mount Sanitas. Ty showed us acrobatics to get down quickly as the skies darkened.

Regional map shows clearer skies for Sunday.  Humidity is 43% and 20% chance of thunderstorms. Thermal soaring forecast is excellent—1,100’/min—starting at 10:45AM  and no over development forecast—nor sure I believe this with so much humidity.

 

Slow Saturday?

Regional weather map shows cloudy skies moving away from area. Looks like clear skies to west.   Thermal soaring forecast is only good—400’/min—because of high level clouds?  No over development forecast so perhaps conditions will improve later.

Posted my flight at the Cove in Utah—wish we had a 2,000′ vertical drive up site for mornings like today.http://parasoftparagliding.com/parashop/parasoft-used-wings/

Also have a Ozone Rush and Swift 4 on my used paraglider page. Let me know if you want to demo them.

Sunday looks better!

Saturday was good but short: I saw a pilot soaring around for 1/2 hour before it clouded up. It was very humid. I got a first short early flight on my Delta 3!

Sunday looks better. Humidity is lower and no over development is forecast!  Thermals will start at 9:45AM and increase up to 1,000’/min!  Regional weather map shows High pressure and clear skies over CO. Winds aloft are again light but pressure difference is -0.2″ so easterly flow may take longer to start. NBR is light and variable now.

Here is my ridge soaring flight at Muscle Rock in San Francisco. I don’t think it will be as cool or soft here today!
