We now have more influence of the Azores high and the upper level instability has moved Eastwards. Winds still may be a little strong mid afternoon, but we should get some decent flying out of the day. thermal tops around 2600m. What Happened: Not so bad. Nice early soaring and then […]
Temperatures continue to be low, with snow level around 1800m level. The moderate NW will make it unlikely to be safely flyable during much of the day. Perhaps at the end of the day. Brighter and lighter tomorrow.
A cold front going through this morning, hence the rain falling, and if we could see through that dense rain, then there is likely to be snow on the top 100m at take off. It should clear by the end of the day and the winds may moderate sufficiently for an evening flight. What […]
We had a reasonable day with 3 flights and good thermal climbs. A bit breezy at the end of the day but with an interesting convergence setting up in the valley at the end of the day.
All looks good, though we need to go above 18 ºC to get climbs and an inversion around 3000m. Estimated top temperature not so high and indicates stability, though yesterdays top of 30ºC in the afternoon went well above the estimated 16ºC. So, it should be good and if the wind direction is correct […]
What Happened. A warmer day than anticipated and strongish, though rough thermals and light N wind. Most of the group fizzled out after about an hour around Santiago de Collado. Decent evening flying as well.
Lighter winds which have come a little more to the West. A bit inverted at 2500mm but we should see higher climbs by the end of the afternoon. Probably worth trying for Avila.
A sunny day in general, though the instability is less so that early morning XC will not be so easy. Perhaps a little top end with the NW wind. What happened. some decent thermalling around the valley during the early afternoon and a big restitution flight in the evening.
The instability is moving south and today should be a little better though a good deal of Stratus later in the day perhaps.
