HI ALL

We’re moving into the time of year when weather doesn’t have to be ideal to provide excellent soaring at Crystal — especially if you like your thermals blue.  Though ten degrees cooler than these last few days, the next spell will bring more uninterrupted sun and the westerly wind will gradually moderate.  Sometime very soon, we’ll be due for a rash of those teensy little cumulus that form a full mile above the highest mountaintops…  Maybe next week.  

HI ALL

This week, Friday will be the warmest day of the year so far, with light wind and likely some fine blue thermals.  Saturday is scheduled for mostly cloudy, so look for the best lift at the downwind edge of sunny areas.  And on Sunday expect clear again but five degrees cooler, and windier due to the lowest pressure of the cycle.   A wild card, you could say…  

 

SEE YOU SOON!

HI ALL!

This won’t be the greatest weekend of the year for thermal conditions, but Friday and Saturday might still turn out fine.  Expect ample sun of course, with temps and wind moderate, and the Work Camp booming all day.  Sunday will bring increasing cloudiness, noticeable cooling, and who knows, if the wind swings more southerly, perhaps conventional wave…  

SEE YOU SOON

HI ALL!

Cool weather will continue throughout the coming week, despite ample sunshine.  Friday might offer the best thermal potential, with very low pressure and light wind.  Saturday, about the same but different of course, and then on Sunday rising pressure will bring a strengthening northeast wind and the potential of an enigmatic local favorite, bow wave.
