E winds and approaching warm front

September 27th, 2012 - Posted by Steve

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.

Clearing skies and dropping winds with c8500ft thermal tops. Excellent conditions

September 26th, 2012 - Posted by Steve

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 […]

Too strong from SW and some frontal rain.

September 25th, 2012 - Posted by Steve

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.

Post Cold frontal

September 24th, 2012 - Posted by Steve

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 […]

Increasing SW wind. Inversion at 8000ft and max thermal tops at c3000ft

September 22nd, 2012 - Posted by Steve

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 […]

Stronger SW and more tense times at Lastra expected

September 21st, 2012 - Posted by Steve

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  […]

Cu´s around 3000m, SW winds.PB for Peter

September 20th, 2012 - Posted by Steve

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 […]

Light winds (S-SE). Reasonable thermals to c9000ft

September 19th, 2012 - Posted by Steve

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 […]
