    Fri nov 13 wave?

    Fri 13th showing west wind wave at Williams. Some clouds pick up PM, but possibly just enough to be Lennies with a gap without closing up the sky

    I'm having similar thoughts about Friday. Staying tuned to the wx...

    I was not having similar thoughts, but then I read this string.

    The issue will be cloud cover. Williams RASP now shows more overcast. But skysight disagrees. It does look like bands of wetter air push through, so it may come and go during the day.

    I agree with John's comments. It looks to me like the wave will work. The only question is the amount of clouds/moisture which might be just about right to provide some good markers.

    I'm planning on flying on Friday assuming the forecast does not change significantly over night.

    Im going to bet on the clouds and stay home, but I have a lot to do here. (I.e. look at webcam all day to regret not flying!) The 7 am webcam looks pretty cloudy, but if you want encouragement go look at the 3 sisters sounding.It's humid but shows no clouds, possible foehn gap effect.

    There was a nice wave setting up with all of the trimmings from Nut Tree all the way north to the I-5/505 highway junction:

    North of the junction it was overcast all the way to Williams and farther north as far as you could see.

    The wave gap trying to form near 3 Sisters, but not gap just a bunch of moisture and a few rotor clouds at 4 pm:

    I knew it was a 50-50 chance that it would dry up enough to create a fine wave day, but it did not. I gave up at 3:30 pm...

    Condolences. But people who don't go to the airport don't fly! Sunday now looking possible. Good wind at ridge top, and dry. Not very strong wave, but wave.

    So true John... Sunday looks pretty good. I'm planning on giving it a try if the wx holds together overnight.
