Sunday looks good!

Today’s map shows clear skies and high pressure. Local forecast calls for easterly flow all day. Thermal soaring forecast is excellent—-800’/min—starting at 9:30AM and no over development.  Humidity is high—61%– so I question this and will arrive early. NBR is already showing up slope flow.

Had an exciting end to my flight yesterday as a helicopter passed right over me and I headed up wind to avoid the rotor!

 

Short Saturday?

Wednesday was a great day for the first flight on my Rush 5.  After 1 hour 5 minutes of flying I needed to hold big ears to get down!

Saturday: Post frontal and NE winds 10–15 mph this PM but short day as Thermal Soaring Forecast is poor—50’/min very cloudy—starting at 10:45AM with over development at 1PM!  National weather service calling for 40 % chance of thunderstorms this PM.

Start early!

Friday was a great day for flying here. I was lazy, launched late and made 2 attempts to XC to Boulder Reservior and only had 1hr 9 minutes. Misha who launched earlier has 3 hr 30 minutes and flew north and then south to the Flatirons.  See our Dorama View together.
