HAPPY MEMORIAL DAY !

Last week our weather swung around to high and hot in perfect time for the weekend…   And Peter Kovari made the season’s first cross-country soaring flight from Crystal, 200 miles to Bishop.

This time the cold front will arrive today (Thursday), after which temps will resume climbing again through Monday.  So we’ll probably see wave on Friday with thermal conditions starting to improve by Saturday, temps rising and wind toning down to lite northerly by Sunday and Monday.

SEE YOU SOON!

TIME TO CLIMB

Somehow we failed to announce Heinz Bringentoff’s successful private pilot checkride a couple weeks back.  Congratulations Heinz!

So far this spring, the natural cycles of weather have left us with cool and windy in time for weekend after weekend, but this time that will finally be reversed.  We’ll see warmer temps each day for a while, lighter winds and thermal potential going up and UP.

SEE YOU SOON!

 

HAPPY MOTHERS DAY !

Or is it Ground Hog Day?  We ask that because, just like last week, temperatures will be dropping through the weekend.  It should remain sunny before, during and after passage of a front, with moderate thermal activity leading to unseasonable WAVE on Sunday.

SEE YOU SOON

AGAIN?

All midweek we’ve seen the best thermal conditions this year so far, with clusters of teensy cumulus above 14,000 feet. Yes but that’s scheduled to change, with a definite cooling trend through the weekend. Look for wave on Saturday and possible showers Sunday (don’t hold your breath for that part). Worst case, somebody will have a chance for some legitimate crosswind practice!
