Weekend Weather Prospects

So, if I was thinking of going flying one day this weekend, (and I am), that day would be… Saturday.

Enough headroom to actually take a launch, that’s a good start, and 15WSW means the ridge should work. There is a shower risk, but I judge that risk to be small.

Most of this information comes from the Tephi/SkewT diagrams for the day. I realise for some that these are a bit of an acquired taste, but they are well worth getting grips with. If there’s time and any demand, I’ll give a little Numpties Briefing on the subject (one that concentrates on the line patterns and keeps dew points, environmental and unsaturated adiabatic lapse rates firmly out of the conversation!)

Maybe we’ll see you there!
