Situation Anticyclone well installed giving us nice weather through to Tuesday with a bit of a heat low forming over the Peninsula. Generally light NE today. A bit more stable with a lower inversion to start with at around 2600m, with blue thermal tops reaching 3000m later in the afternoon. What Happened Super condiitons, but […]
The trough moves further to the Med and a ridge of high pressure setting up over Cantabria. Blue thermal tops over 3000m. Should be a good day! What Happened Once again excellent conditions and a flight to the Tornavacas Pass (30km) and back (part way for some). Just love these end of August and […]
Situation Thankfully the greater instability aloft remains to our south so we may get away with another day without large build ups in our flying area. The protagonist maybe the Easterly wind. There is a SE blowing since early this morning, though it should come on to the main site. We can consider going to […]
An upper level cold front moved through overnight and has bought marked instability aloft which is going to cause us a few problems for decent XC paragliding. This morning we have extended Cirrus which is cutting out the heating of the Valley and hillside, giving us a gentle SE catabatic at Peña Negra. Trigger temperature […]
Situation High pressure to our West with a heat low centralised further south. A ridge of high pressure over the NW of the Peninsula. Slow arrival of upper level instability. There is an inversion around 3000m in the flatlands so that should keep the build up down. Generally a day similar to yesterday with the […]
Situation High pressure to the west and low pressure to our south. Over the next few days we will have low pressure in altitude moving in which will make things more unstable aloft and could lead to some bigger cloud build ups. Today looks pretty good with a thermal top well above 3000m, though the […]
High pressure giving us nice weather for the weekend with generally NE flow at flying levels though more W at the boundry layer. Inverted around 2600m, but likely to go +3000m with the chance of some sparce Cu. I nice day for out and returns or an out to the W.
here is a photo from last week. Phil on his way to Barco before turning back. We are off the same direction tomorrow according to the forecast.
High level ridge and WSW at lower levels moving North late in the day. A base higher than the airspace after Avila, but not uncomfortably so. Inversion around 3000m , but likely blue climbs to 3200m. Looking good for open XC 100km+. Trigger temp 30ºC and likely to get going well in valley around […]
Situation the upper level stability has been displaced by a weak trough. Today a fair amount of upper level cloud which will reduce heating and the thermals will be weaker. Also the air quality seems very low as there seems to have been a fire upwind of us during the night. Moderate W winds moving […]
