Week beginning Monday 4th February

Postby Dave Thomas » Sun Feb 03, 2019 5:18 pm

Forecasts vary a bit for Monday, but there looks like being a chance in the afternoon - not sure, either the Mynd or our NW sites. It might be on the windy side so if it's windy and NW, the low part of Lawley or Long Mountain. Some thermic activity and a decent lapse rate up to cloudbase at maybe 3000ft.

Rest of the week at present either wet or on the edge of too windy.

It is still due to drop windspeed this afternoon and go more NW direction, but the cloudbase isn't going to be as good as forecast yesterday. Still, it does look like it might be flyable from mid-afternoon.

Webcams showed it worked as expected, though stayed more West, with quite a few PG's boating about on the Mynd this afternoon.

There were 9 pg's in attendance - some getting to over 1000ft ATO in the very smooth conditions.

I did for a moment think our SW sites might be ok today for HG's, but the lapse rate charts look awful, so it's a no from me now.
