SOARING FORECAST JULY 13-16, 2012

THIS WEEK:
Quite hot weather will continue through approximately Saturday. Fantastic lift should be had with the caveat to be on the lookout for overdevelopment and downdrafts (early Thursday am the NWS issued a warning as a huge gust front w/lightning blew out the Antelope Valley). Height of lift throughout the period over 12,000 feet. Winds will be light. Development of CU’s marking lift very likely. Killer soaring weather!

 

SYNOPSIS:
High pressure is still parked over eastern Nevada. This last weeks weather pattern has been unusual in its tendency to park in one place. The anti-cyclonic flow of this parked high pressure system will pull up moisture from the southeast and create the highest potential for T-storms in a two week period in our area on Friday. Expect to see quite of bit of CU’s. Saturday onwards the high pressure will finally be pushed out eastward and we’ll return to normal conditions by Sunday ie. temps in the 90’s. A gradual cooling trend will set in as low pressure parks off our west coast.
