Flyable Lenticular sky

A flyable day today, though if you took a snapshot of the sky you would have thought not. A classic wave forecast day with an inversion sitting around the tops of the higher mountains (2400m) and a SW flow at all altitudes, though very weak below the convective layer. Although the sky was covered in cirrus, there was enought sunlight to bring the wind onto Peña Negra. As the sunshine came out more the thermals became reasonably strong and some of the wind started to come down. I was late off as we had the President of the Provincial Government at launch with one of the local radio stations. Being a little later allowed me to get the best of it as the sun came through. Later Cristoph flew once again but conditions deteriorated with stronger winds.
