Sunday as good as Saturday?

Saturday started very slow and I had the first soaring flight launching at 12:40 PM!

The lift was scattered and I could only climb to 500′ above launch in 21 minutes!

Here is my track log.

I should have been more patient as several pilots launching later made it to Lyons!

Sunday looks cloudier.  Weather map shows cloudy conditionsEasterly winds this AM but strong westerly winds late afternoon! Reporting 10% chance of thunderstorms.

Thermal soaring forecast is good—700’/min— but short today not starting until 12AM and thunderstorms by 3PM!

Winds aloft are low.

NBR is showing light winds.
