Down to Barco with Marcella
We have high pressure centred over the Azores which extends across to western Europe. There is a heat low in the south of Spain and an isolated depression over the peninsula which will move east. This will make the atmosphere more unstable but only cause problems with storms to the south east and later in the week in the Pyrenees. In our area conditions will be reasonably stable.
Today a light to moderate e N.NE, lightening this evening and going more East. Cloud base at 9am is forming below take off height, but later in the day should rise to approx 3000m.
Nice morning XC with a low and slow flight to just past Barco with Marcella on her first XC outside of Brasil. Great clouds but just a bit to low early in the day to commit beyond Tornavacas.
