week beginning Monday 11th November

Nothing doing until maybe Wednesday, if we are lucky - west to SW ish and dry. After that maybe the weekend.

Wednesday looking promising still but maybe more likely SSE to SW, but at least flyable by the look of things so far. Weekend also looking ok.

Previous request for support with weather and sites advice:

I am very pleased to report that fellow obsessed pilot Jon Tatton has offered to help with our regular weather advice on the forum. I am especially pleased because Jon will be able to bring to the forum experience of many of our less well used sites and also those of the Mid Wales club as he lives over that way. I have been a member of Mid Wales on and off for many years, but have only ever flown Constitution hill once, so have not been able to advise on those options. Please note that our 'less well used sites' are in fact quite often used, but not by the majority of LMSC only members, so most people don't know what they are missing, apart from the wonderful scenery they can be great sites to ridge soar and sometimes thermal from.

Wednesday now looks less hopeful for our area, due to rain more likely coming through from the west in the afternoon. Avon or Thames Valley sites maybe less likely to be got by rain. Having said that, the wind is due to be SW backing S so our sites may work, especially early on.

Changed again a bit, I think maybe Wrekin on Wednesday from lunchtime after the wind has backed to South or SSE, rain not due there until after dark.

Today, early on any if our SW facing hills, then after lunch its due to back SE with rain approaching from the SW and W Therefore on the basis that its furthest from rain I'm still going for Wrekin as the option later on.

On Wednesday I think it was too windy at the Wrekin by the time the wind was perfect direction. Not sure if anyone flew there before it got that windy.
This weekend looks pretty dismal, though wind speeds are maybe ok, the hills will most likely by in mist much of the time, especially with occluded front's in close proximity to our area.
