NE wind and trips to Barco
The upper level trough has moved through leaving high pressure at lower levels and a N to NE flow in the convective layer. around 15km/hr at take off level and 30km/hr at 3000m. A marked inversion at 2600m. Probable climbs later in the afternoon to c3000m.
A reasonable XC day flying towards Barco/Plasencia with all the excitements of the Cherry Tree Valley and the Tornavacas Pass.
Easterly winds if strong can be a problem here. See https://vimeo.com/64294975 for my explanation. Forecast today is light so it should not be a problem
Not an atypical day for a E component. Many in Barco, a few beyond towards the Tornavacas pass, but base not so high and the wind a bit to strong.
