High humidity and clouds are present again. This really limited the amount of heating and thermal development yesterday and gave us over development concerns.
Thursday looks very similar to Wednesday where we had good flights all day with light thermals. Several flights were possible.
Thursday’s thermal forecast is better with lift to 500’/min starting at 11AM. Winds aloft are light and pressure gradient is only -.05″! NBR is already showing up slope flow.
Let me know when you want to start.
Forecast continue to call for significant snow staring Friday afternoon.
Yesterday afternoon was fantastic for soaring. My P1’s launched at 4PM and Dave’s first flight was 10 minutes from the lower launch in smooth and buoyant air! About I watched Lex and another P3 pilot float around for 1 1/2 hours! Passing weak Canadian Cold Front have caused post frontal conditions. Check NBR and consider an evening flight again today.
Pressure gradient -.06″ and high pressure dominating area. West winds at NBR and Sugar Loaf. I will start with P1’s at 3pm.
Weak cold front passed over area early this morning so post frontal flying looks good today with mostly clear skies. Local forecast shows NE flow all day and pressure gradient -.07″.
NBR is already showing up slope flow. Will start with P1’s at 7:30 AM.
