Saturday looks like west winds!

NOAA weather radio calling for strong westerly winds this PM and local forecast shows the same.  Pressure gradient is big at negative -.27″!  Winds aloft are very high! NBR  still showing light and variable  winds but Sugar Loaf already showing strong westerly winds.

Good day to finish your Christmas shopping:  I just received a new order of Ozone Ozium pod harnesses and have Ozone flight suits to keep you warm for during this winters flying. Have Ascent H2 GPS varios  in a variety of colors for just $349!

Still some spots left if you really want to stay warm in Tapalpa, Mexico February 4—-11th.

The solstice is past so more sun is coming!

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

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.

Sunday’s strong west winds!

Sunday is looking very catabatic with west winds increasing during the day.

NBR already showing light west winds early with a pressure difference of -.24″!

NOAA weather radio calling for strong west winds this PM.

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.

Alphina 3 was released this week and already have 2 orders arriving end of  January 2018.

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.

Sunday starting west but ….

Sunday is starting out with strong west winds at NBR and a pressure difference of -.41″!  The local forecast calls for winds to switch by noon.  Winds aloft are much lower today.  Perhaps some afternoon flying?

Thermal soaring forecast is good—400’/min—starting at 12:30PM with no over development.

Winds have calmed! I will meet P2 pilots in park at 10:30AM.

West winds are back! Check NBR
