Extensive rain but clearing late this afternoon so we may bet a flight with the NE wind.
Low pressure in the south of Spain and an approaching warm from from the south. Not ideal! Rain forcast south of us and a lot of upper level cloud. Difficult conditions for decent flying.
Passage of cold front throught the Peninsula which should leave us by mid morning with a rapid drop off in wind speed and thermals to around 8500ft. If we fly it may be one of the few places in Europe that it is possible today. Tomorrow light E winds and more sunshine. What Happened? A […]
the passage of a cold front associated with the deep depression over the UK will make safe paragliding impossible today. Tomorrow looking OK at the moment.
A very difficult week ahead for decent paragliding as the low to the N of Spain depens and moves towards the UK but giving us persistent strong SW wins and unsettled weather. Today very little thermic activity with a strong inverstion aroun 2100m and cool temperatures (18ºC). If the wind goes west enough then we […]
With the depression in the Atlantic nearer and nearer the winds from the SW will be picking up by the end of the day and we will see more Cirruss. Perhpas less Cu today and the winds early on may be acceptable. Thermal tops at end of day around 10,000ft but an in version at […]
The depression to the West in the Atlantic is deepening and sending us upper level SW flow which will begin to come down over today and the weekend. More unstable than yesterday with upper level instability increasing over the day so we can imagine that Cbs are more likely (rather than the overgrown congestus of […]
Still a low pressure situation but pressure rising slowly and an inversion growing which should cap overdevelopement at the end of day. SW winds of 10-15km/hr and thermall tops and Cu around 10,000ft. Weak thermals at expected max of around 26ºC, though will improve at lot at 28ºC. Reasonalbe XC potential if we are flying […]
Low pressure (heat low formed over central Spain) and the passage of a cold front southwards (though mainly to the East of us) will complicate the day. Development of large cumulus clouds and possibly Cbs (though more likely to E of us). We should get reasonable soaring conditions with the possiblility of a modest XC […]
