Local forecast calls for west winds all day but only west @5 m.p.h. this morning. Will morning heating be enough to cause up slope flow for a few hours this morning?
Pressure gradient -.13″and NBR still showing light west winds.
I will meet students at 7:30AM for either ground handling or flights as conditions develop.
Inversion broke about 7:15AM and strong westerly winds came. Next week?
Pressure gradient -.12″ and barometric pressure dropping on front range so up slope flow could be limited. Local forecast calls for west winds all day but up slope flow may over power pressure gradient for a while. Mountain sites showing light westerly winds.
Yesterday’s down slope winds ate up much of the snow but it still persists and left much mud on trail to launch. Pressure gradient -.09″ and NBR still showing west winds. Local forecast showing change to up slope flow by noon. Winds aloft light today.
Thermal soaring forecast is fair today with thermals starting at 11AM and over development at 6PM. We will start at 10:30 AM today. Let me know if you need a wing.
Tomorrow should be drier but local forecast showing west winds all day.
Pressure gradient +.01″ and NBR showing easterly winds. Winds in mountains light. NOAA weather radio and local forecast calling for west winds this afternoon. Soaring forecast is good.
Will start with P1’s at 8AM to get them some flights before noon. Picked up some used wings so let me know if you want to try one.
Humidity is 60% and 40% chance of rain this afternoon. Cloudy over the state.
Thermal soaring forecast is poor. NBR showing light up slope flow. Expect this to increase but rain more likely in afternoon. Local forecast showing for up slope flow all day and strong westerly Sunday. Today is the day to fly this weekend.
Let me know when you want to start soft flights. Starting at 10:45!
Pressure gradient -.13″ and NBR showing easterly winds early. Local weather forecast shows easterly winds all day.Today looks like good flying—-snow & wind coming!
Will start with P1’s at 8AM, let me know if you need a wing.
Pressure gradient .04″ and NBR is down. Low passing over area right now. Strong northerly winds exist at DIA and Fort Collins early this AM. Expect these to decrease as low moves away and flying to be good and warmer by midday.
Weather is warming and north winds are not here. We will start at 11 AM.
Too cold and windy!
Jet stream continues to be over CO and winds aloft high again. Mountain winds strong westerly. Local winds expected to be down slope all day!
Next week look better.
Starting very cool with sunny skies will bring significant thermal action by mid day. Pressure gradient -.06″ and NBR already showing up slope flow.
Will start with P1’s at 8AM and only 10% chance of thunderstorms. Thermals no starting till noon & no over development—sounds like afternoon soaring.
Pressure gradient -.17″ and Sugar Loaf reporting west winds at 6 gusting to 11 m.p.h. Will up slope flow over power significant negative pressure gradient? NBR showing light and variable winds. 20% chance of thunderstorms this P.M.
I have no P1’s to let me know when you want to start.
