SOARING FORECAST, SEPTEMBER 9 THROUGH 12, 2011

WEEKEND SOARING FORECAST, SEPTEMBER 9 THROUGH 12, 2011



This weekend will be dominated by an easterly wind flow albeit very gentle through the period. High temps should remain through Saturday then it will begin to cool starting Sunday.
The thermal forecast looks good – up to 600 FPM to over 10,000 feet for most days. The lift will likely be east of us. The marine inflow will be held back on the coast by the east and southeast breezes so don’t expect our usual convergences to appear.

There will be some moist tropical air arriving but I do not expect any local over-development. Good amount of puffy CU are in the forecast. Do not see any extensive cloud cover forecast for our area. East and South towards big bear and Joshua tree will likely over-develop as usual. But you were not going there anyways.

Dr. Jacks Soaring Predictions indicate we will have lift of 550 feet per minute to 11,000 feet at the field both Friday and Saturday.
