    Thanks Kempton. I am Following the thread to see if anyone else is planning to fly. My glider is at Byron so not sure I can make it.

    FYI, for pilots who haven't used Tracker too much, here is the url for tracker at Byron:

    http://glidertracker.org/#lat=37.830...1.625&z=12&id=

    I see Ramy is in the air. I see it on the SSA Tracker:

    Wind over Mt Diablo, looking at Windy.com shows:
    - wind arrows, 8 Am to 5 PM today, surface to FL 300
    The wind at 24,000 (400h) looking at 11 AM, the top wind arrow is approximately 005 degrees at 65 kts (that's in degrees true, not magnetic).
    Next one down is 500 mb - FL180 - about the same direction at 55 kts.
