    Monday 25 soaring

    Monday looks like a quite nice foothills thermal day. See 3sisters sounding.

    I have been watching this too and I bet it will be a good day. Unfortunately I have a work commitment.

    Re: Monday 25 soaring

    Monday looks like a fine winter post frontal soaring day with thermals in the foothills with the possibility of a convergence line running North-South-ish along the Cortina - Berryessa Ridges.

    The wrinkles I see for the day are the strong post frontal winds which will tear up the thermals a bit. I would expect some showers to be coming off the Mendos late in the afternoon.



    If I did not have a prior commitment on Monday afternoon, you would see me at WSC assuming the forecast holds up.


    Look at all of the unstable air behind the front:

    I'm only seeing 20 kt wind in the thermal layer after noon. That might be sporty in ground based thermals, but there will be plenty of cloud, so I would expect the several thousand feet below cloud to be pretty nice.
