Club Class National - Tuesday Weather

Synoptics

The fourth (or is it fifth?) straight day of generally NWerly flow in our area brings another nice soaring day.   High pressure ridges out of Canada and keeps a complex series of systems at bay.   

Instability

Boundary layer generally at around 5000-6000 feet.   Expect 3-5kts lift to 5000 and occasionally 6000 over the hills and mountains.

Clouds

Dewpoints have dropped into the low/mid 40s throughout the task area, so expect the day to be primarily blue.   Can’t rule out the isolated Cu field to the north, but they should be short-lived.

Winds

Winds continue NWerly (310-320) from about 5-10kts near the surface and around 15-20kts near the top of the boundary layer.  Average winds about 10-15kts in the working band.

Cautions

 Wear lots of sunscreen.
