WEEKEND SOARING FORECAST, JANUARY 20 to 23, 2012

I am looking forward to flying wave tomorrow (Friday) in my HP-18 (22HY). Winds aloft look good at the 10,000 foot level for most of the day. Good enough for wave but not remarkable in velocity. Unusual weekend of weather in store. We’ll have two separate pulses of cool low pressure weather pass through quickly from the Northwest. Starting Saturday it will be wet on the coast but as usual we’ll likely be dry here in our high desert with only a slight chance of clouds. Again wave is forecast for Saturday with winds aloft at 180 degrees it should happen. Sunday it will be sunny and clear as a ridge of high pressure builds in. I expect there may be another day of wave Sunday and even Monday (pre-frontal and post-frontal) as late Monday afternoon the second albeit weaker weather system makes its arrival from the West.

My suggestion for the weekend, come out and fly wave with us!
