SOARING FORECAST JUNE 29 – JULY 1, 2012

THIS WEEK
Hot and sunny throughout this period with temps consistently in the 90’s. Overnight low temps will remain relatively high so our ground should heat soak nicely without much overnight cooling -helping the thermals develop early in the day. Thermal updraft velocity is forecast to be over 600 feet per minute over a wide area over the next several days.

Synoptically we are under a high pressure influence that is keeping our temperatures above normal for the next few days. A low pressure system is moving in from the West and will push Northwest winds into the Antelope Valley throughout the period but will not make landfall this weekend. This push will likely cover the coastal areas with a marine layer but our high desert will be clear, hot and sunny with nice soaring conditions.
