More wind and stronger. Some chance this evening.

High pressure n the Azores and a heat low over Spain and more instability today at high levels with a trough forming right across the centre of Spain which could lead to some storms in some areas.

A cold front will pass through on Saturday which will give us good conditions from Perhaps Sunday evening and Monday.

The local forecast is showing a significant drop in low level winds this evening, so perhaps we will be able to fly at Lastra West take off .  Yesterday the drop of was quite sudden and we arrive late and took off from the S rather than the W launch, so we should go earlier and walk to the W launch.

so, we should leave at 6pm from the house to go to Lastra.

Something to do for today.  A trip to Salamanca perhaps.  Or elsewhere.  Vans are available and also driver if necessary (vans are insured for any driver).  If you want to go to Salamanca, best go early before it gets really hot, also Nigel wanted to go to the art deco museum which closes at 2.

Give me your desires/comments in the shout box below.

    Definitely in favour of early evening flight. Not enough information to comment on Salamanca trip.
