Tuesfay 20th September

Tuesfay 20th September

Postby Dave Thomas » Mon Sep 19, 2022 10:26 pm

Due to be very light winds roughly west but not ridge soarable. Afternoon is supposed to be thermic but with the high pressure builing so much it may be dissapointing as its getting late in the year now, but a chance is better than no chance!

Still supposed to be thermic early on but some forecasts say east or south winds but never enough for any chance of ridge soaring.

Clatter looks on today, for HG and maybe PG early on as due to get windier during the afternoon. Descent air quality.

Friday sees some subtle but important variations in forecasts. Some say a nice NW soaring wind while others say more likely N or even NNE at times. Some suggest really quite windy especially near cloudbase while other charts show it oj. Does look like further into Wales may be a bit lighter. Should be nucely thermic with base around 4000ft. Generally conditions look best lunchtime rather than later on but still ok to soar. Options i think lawley, long mountain clunbury or maybe little london which takes more north than the usual llandinam launch and due to be better thermic air over that way. If any element of east in wind then will have to be corndon. If it does not turn out too windy it looks a really nice day.

Saturday looks like we're in about the best plave for soaring and thermalling xc. However direction is not ideal for most. Its currently nnw but due to veer n and probably nne during the day. Early option i think will be long mountain but corndon by the afternoon. Winds likely to be ok to soar or at times on the high side.

Sunday looks a nice Mynd day, certainly to start with. The wind is due to gradually increase and become more variable in speed when the clouds develop at lunchtime. Some mid layer cloud may limit thermal activity and cumulus spreadout kill it in the afternoon at times. By mid afternoon it maybe a bit windy for PG launching. Enjoy it while you can.
