WEEKEND SOARING FORECAST, JANUARY 27 to 30, 2012

Sunny, warm, and dry conditions will dominate this period. Our airmass will arrive out of the Northeast as a stationary ridge of high pressure parks over SoCal through next week.

Gentle North component winds indicate bow wave and ridge lift opportunities for this period. Warm clear air should allow the sun to heat up some of our local thermal producers. The skew-T forecast indicates inversions typical of this type of weather pattern though limiting height of thermals to a few thousand feet AGL.




The National Weather Service is predicting the following local surface conditions for Friday through Monday:

FRIDAY:
Sunny. Temperature: 66 degrees
Wind: West 5 to 10 mph. Becoming Northeast at appx. noon.

SATURDAY:
Sunny, Temperature: 63 degrees
Wind: East 10 to 15 mph.

SUNDAY
Sunny, Temperature: 66 degrees
Wind: Northeast 5 mph.

MONDAY:
Sunny, Temperature: 64 degrees
Wind: West 10 mph. Becoming Northeast.
