Week Beginning Monday 21st September

Postby Dave Thomas » Mon Sep 21, 2020 8:04 am

Monday sees Wales with a light westerly wind which should reach the Mynd, but it's only due to be light and whether actually soarable is not clear. Cloudbase or inversion only 2000ft or a bit above in the afternoon assuming the low mist clears quickly enough which it seems to be doing.

Tuesday has moderate to fresh SW winds but the inversion level is even lower.

Weekend promising at present.

Well Monday was briefly flyable, but the mornings west wind died at the Mynd then picked up and went south east, I don't know if anyone flew at The Wrekin or Corndon in that wind.
I think Saturday is blown out, but Sunday might be ok at Long Mountain or just maybe Lawley.

Sunday I get mixed messages. Certainly the nearer to the north wales coast looks like the least wind in the UK but just how much lighter and at what point around by us is it flyable is hard to determine. The windspeed at cloudbase or inversion level remains high all day but low level winds should drop off a lot into the evening. Wind direction should be NW to NNW with inversion up around 3000 ft. I still think long mountain or lawley for pg and maybe llangollen for hg, but if the reduction in wind in north Wales maybe llangollen for pg but its difficult to launch there when windy.
