WEEKEND SOARING FORECAST, MAY 18 to 21, 2012


Quite nice thermal conditions are forecast throughout the weekend. Temps will be on the increase as a warm high pressure system builds in through Monday. Gentle winds out of the west through Saturday then winds will be almost calm Sunday and Monday. Those days might be even better for the thermal lift forecast as the ground will heat up with only moderately low temps overnight.

The thermal updraft velocity forecast for Saturday looks especially enticing as the entire Antelope Valley cooks off….
