NE low and SW high
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 changing winds will make open XC a difficult option.
Excellent conditions to the Pass with a climb of 3300 to cloud base there and a good tailwind towards Avila, However, below 2300m the wind was N to NE, stopping us before Muñogalindo. Only Pete went past and made it back to Amavida.
