SOARING FORECAST JULY 27 – 30, 2012

THIS WEEK:
VERY CONSISTENT WEATHER THIS PERIOD. Pick any day and it’ll be like another. West to Southwest winds at about 10 knots or so with high surface temps nearing 100 degrees. Clear blue-sky conditions. Dr. Jacks lift forecast looks excellent for thermals (up to 600 feet per minute each day) but height of lift may not be as good as it was last week with our high cloudbases and puffy cumulus. Look for the classic convergence/shearline conditions that will push in Northward from the Cajon pass to our East and from Agua Dulce on the west side each day.

SYNOPSIS
HIGH PRESSURE WILL DOMINATE:
A high pressure system in SoCal will combine with a high pressure system in the midwest to form a large high pressure ridge east of our location. The anti-cyclonic rotation may pull up some moisture from the gulf area Monday or so. Say goodbye to the lovely cumulus that have been floating in our area. Clear, arid blue-sky conditions will be the norm with very hot temps this period. Chance of inversion and lift capping possible due to overlying upper level high pressure pushing over-the-top from the east.
