Week beginning Monday 11th March

Postby Dave Thomas » Sun Mar 10, 2019 8:12 am

On the face of it, it looks like another completely blown out week ahead.
However, on Monday and Tuesday the winds on some forecasts show being lighter the further west you go, with England blown out, but Wales might stand a chance. Against that England's due to have a decent lapse rate and cloudlbase but poor the further west you go. Direction somewhere between West and SW.

So if it turns out as light as the best forecasts, then the Mynd might be ok for HG's and speed wings, coastal sites ideal for PG's and if a bit windy then the dunes on the coast. If it's as windy as other forecasts, then the coast will be totally blown out.
Wednesday onwards looks even windier!

It's due to be a lovely day, thermic with a good cloudbase but I'm now pretty certain it will be too windy. There is a faint chance just before dark it might drop off enough to launch at the Mynd, but probably too strong most of the day for HG's. And there's too much snow on the roads at present.

Looks like it might be flyable on Sunday, and then next week gets much better. Real flying weather hopefully.

Sunday now looks too windy for even HG's to launch. I thought maybe the coast, but with forecast ground level winds of over 20mph on the coast, even dune soaring looks doubtful, though the weather is due to be quite nice for a visit to the seaside. I would guess the sailplanes will find it nice at the Mynd though there is due to be poor air coming in quite early in the day.
