MORE CHARACTER BUILDING

It’s a recurring theme this time of year, more and more days of delicious autumn conditions as thermal intensity gradually declines.  We’ll have mostly light winds all week (except perhaps Saturday afternoon) and blue thermals up to around mountaintop height each day.  Not summer anymore, but still the finest weather you could ask for…

SEE YOU SOON!

HOW’S YOUR CHARACTER?

After a wind event Thursday, we’ll slip into a doldrum period of moderating easterlies and very flat temperature gradients. In other words, welcome back to soaring conditions of the “character building” variety. Like the prior week, it should be very pleasant, with light air and comfy temps. Perfect for flight training!

NO SURPRISE, REALLY

When I moved here from the northeast more than twenty years ago, weather was the main reason. Superior thermal conditions in summer were taken for granted, and did not disappoint, but the big surprise came this time of year. While the north country descends into one or another form of inclemency, and tropical storm season continues, our days here just get more and more pleasant. Expect another week of uninterrupted sun, light breezes and temps topping out around 80 degrees …with thermal conditions about like those other ‘normal’ places have all summer.

We’ll be closed this coming Monday, Oct. 7, to catch up on some maintenance issues.

SEE YOU THIS WEEKEND!

TIME FOR A COOL CHANGE

In keeping with the official start of autumn, this week will bring lowering temperatures and rising winds. Wave season may begin Friday, and if not, almost certainly on Saturday. Surface wind should subside on Sunday, but seasonable cooling will continue…

SEE YOU SOON!
