- Usual forecaster
- David Masson
- Depending on workload, will try to do outlook and soaring foreacast for most XC-able days
THIS IS A TEMPORARY FORMAT FOR NOW
Times now GMT! Waving front went through Saturday night and then we have high pressure and a polar airmass (cooler and drier). 27/10/2019 UPDATE SINCE LAST NIGHT : the forecast winds have changed (since yesterday's model run) so it is more of a case of weak thermals.
Sun : Now the winds are too light for the ridge. AM wind N/15kts aloft and only 8-10kts on the ridge. In the afternoon weak blue thermals to 2000-2500ft ASL and it it mixes up wind N/8-10kts.
Mon : AM Wind 060/10-12kts. PM Weak thermals to 2500ft+. The Southdowns might just work with wind 040-050/12-14kts helping bump thermals off.
Tue : Wind 070/18-20kts. Weak thermals AM, but in the afternoon a change of air might bring better thermals with cu base 3000ft+, but tending overdevelop with rather a lot of CuSc 3000-3500/5000ft
if there are XC-able/ridge days
