Week beginning Monday, 3rd December

Postby Geoffm » Sun Dec 02, 2018 7:59 pm

Another lousy week, when it's either too wet, or too windy, or both.

Monday: there might be a (very) slim chance in the afternoon, if the rain stops, the fog clears, and it goes westerly for the Mynd.

Tuesday: mostly dry, and lighter winds. SE - too light for Corndon. If it's not clagged in, the Gyrn, or even the Wrekin, might be an option. Or Rushup in the Peaks.

Rest of the week looks like a write off at the moment.

I am thinking the Lawley could be possible on Monday afternoon.

I think Graeme is right about thinking of flying this afternoon, though it's clearing from the west slowly so Camlo or Llandinam I think are more promising to be dry enough - the wind is due to decrease this afternoon.

Tuesday, a lovely day but hardly any wind. Lapse charts look nice - no low cloud etc, thought that will be moving in from the west later. good for TTB's on some high hills, and there just might be enough to scratch around in the southerly peak district sites.

Tuesday had the warm front murk come in quite early and be virtually nil wind here anyway.
I'm probably being over-optimistic, but BBC indicated on telly just now the cold front should clear our area by Wednesday afternoon, so there might be some flying if not too windy - direction will be veering, so anywhere between SSE and West - not really sure about timing yet, but will monitor and post in the morning.

Wednesday not looking good - the frontal rain is still well out in the Irish sea so it's going to take a good while to clear here.

Wednesday was I think briefly flyable at Clatter, but no one there until it got too windy later in the afternoon.

No chance at all Friday - Sunday. Monday looks promising though
