    Sat/Sun Sept 6-7

    Both days similar thermal height of 12-13K, but drier Saturday. The best news is the offshore low:

    not only boosts the lift height but also brings the SW flow to get the smoke out of the area. Sunday looks good with cu in the Yolla/Black Butte area in the mid-afternoon:

    There is still a fire in the Happy Camp area, so a TFR is in effect W of Scott Valley & north. Task wise, it's a late summer run to Shasta and back or so….

    FNX plans to fly Sunday.

    Monday is looking like the better of the two days.

    FNX is on the cal model, committed to Sunday. Monday is definitely better in terms of cu density, but Sunday's lift height still looks good at 12K or so at Yolla

    A super day. Blue thermals to 12.5K, with cu @Hayfork & Scott Valley to 15.5K! OLC here:

    Out at 12:30p, back by 6p. I'll let Kevin Ash comment further, he seemed to enjoy it. A good, fast flight for this time of year.

    Ginny put together a fantastic steak dinner with Ray as BBQ master, with Noelle creating a fantastic cobbler. Monday should be even better.
