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 and the jet stream moving south

On Friday several of us wanted to get a flight in before Saturdays west winds.  It was good: Thermalling on Friday.

Saturdays strong west winds show that jet stream has moved south and strong westerly winds are closer. I believe to fly  this time of year without checking winds aloft at 9K and 12K is irresponsible.  See yet stream.  See winds aloft.

Sunday’s weather map shows clear skies with High to west and Low to east negative pressure gradient of -.35″!   Local forecast shows light west winds till noon but sunny skies should start up slope flow earlier. NBR showing light and variable winds early. Thermal soaring forecast is fair—300’/min starting at 1:45 with no over development but remember it was also fair on Friday when I climbed at 600’/min.  Winds aloft have not been updated yet but Sugar Loaf is reporting light winds.

Saturday

Monday’s cold front made for some exciting flying as I was blown southward to North Boulder Park.

Saturday looks partly cloudy.  Local weather forecast shows easterly winds most of the day. Thermal soaring forecast is excellent—1,200’/min—starting at 11:30AM  and over development by 3PM!  NBR is not operating.

Any pilots with large Buzz Z that wants to upgrade to a new wing, please let me know as I need one.

Saturday looks hot & dry!

Last Sunday was fantastic.  I flew nearly out to Boulder Reservoir and back!

Here is my short XC flight.

Saturday’s forecast is dry & hot.  Regional map shows clear skies and high pressure over area. Local forecast show NE winds all day.  Thermal soaring forecast is excellent starting at 11:45AM with no over development forecast! Thermals to 957’/min. NBR   showing humidity at only 36% and light winds early.
