    Friday night outlook.

    Best soaring fcst in a long time.

    We are going to have a good race day.

    Surface winds not a factor, total cloud cover has decreased to nil in the fcst, bases of the cu are very workable, and take look at this convergence line....

    Best to keep an eye on the clock and the cloud cover tomorrow afternoon.

    Sounding at WSC shows that after after 4 PM it may be heading towards a solid overcast at 8,000 ft by 5 PM, with wind shear at a few hundred feet up if you land after 6 PM.
    Not a problem if you plan ahead.

    Thank you Peter!
    You're welcome.

    I always find it interesting to see all the tracks on one page.

    Each Race day is found on the menu as a sub-menu to Race and then Race 2015

    Race Day # 2 is also available, see ... http://www.valleysoaring.net/?page_id=2657
