Upslope delayed on Friday

Thursday was weak then west: No one after you got a long  flight with weak up slope flow. I observed that barometric pressure was dropping at local airports and the winds at 7,000′ were light west so I encourage all to launch soon if they want to fly safely.
I scratched around for 14 minutes but only 200′ above launch in light lift—400’/min—before landing.
About 1/2 later it turned west.

Friday:

Weather map shows High to west and Low to east. Negative pressure gradients  of -.2 will delay easterly flow.   NBR showing light easterly.  Keep an eye on it.

Barometric pressure rising at front range airportsNBR showing easterly winds.  Thermal soaring forecast excellent!

We will start at 8AM.
