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.
We will start at 8AM.
