Saturday is light and variable?

Regional weather map shows much clouds over area.  Despite local forecast calling for light west winds, NBR has been showing some easterly flow.

Winds aloft are a bit high but Sugar Loaf is showing easterly winds.

A few spots are still available for our Tapalpa, Mexico trip next month February 4—11th. This looks to be much better flying.

 

Saturday looks like the day to fly!

Last Wednesday was great: Johannes flight was ~ 2 hours and I had to engage big ears and speed bar to get out of the cold.

Saturday looks like the day to fly this weekend—-snow this evening!

Regional weather map shows cloudy skies.  Local weather forecast shows NE flow all day.

Thermal soaring forecast is poor due to clouds? Winds aloft are light.

NBR is showing light and variable winds early.

 

Saturday not looking good!

NBR is showing significant west winds early and local forecast calling for this to continue all day.  Winds aloft are strong from west.  Morning sunshine may temporarily give us up slope flow but with strong winds aloft watch for inversion to break and strong west winds.

Sunday looks better as local forecast shows up slope winds.

Saturday December flying possible?

Regional  weather map shows clear skies over CO.   Local forecast shows light winds over area turning easterly this PM.  Winds aloft are a bit high but  Sugar Loaf is showing light and variable winds. Thermal soaring forecast is good—500’/min—starting at 11:45AM with no over development. Pressure difference -.25″! NBR is showing light and variable early.

Still have a few spots open for Tapalpa, Mexico February 4—11th.

Saturday’s west winds but Sunday’s up slope?

The jet stream and strong winds aloft are over area.  Local forecast calls for strong westerly winds on Saturday but turning northerly on Sunday.  This would give a NE flow at NBR on Sunday if sunny,

The jet stream and strong westerly winds are a part of winter here so consider our trips to Tapalpa, Mexico in January & February. There are still a few spots left.

Tuesday looks good!

Strong NW winds aloft persist. Not worth the risk.
