Is the wind good at Kagel?

Or more like weather education. I've posted information I use to help figure out the day. Often I'll also post graphics with explanations of "why" the weather guessers think the day is good.

Is the wind good at Kagel?

There's a new image we update every 5 minutes between 6am - 30m after sunset. It will be here all the time as long as the WhackCam is operational. From 6am to 2pm, the camera will normally be pointed at the windsock. After 8am, the camera becomes available to users for control until 1:58pm, so the camera may not be always pointed at the windsock between those hours. If it is not pointed at the windsock, you can control the camera by logging into the camera. User name and password is in the members only section of SHGA.COM.

At 2pm, the camera should automatically slew to the LZ and begin recording landings until 5:30pm. PTZ control is not available to users after 2pm.


You can see if the wind in the LZ is good by looking here

Other mountain top wind can be seen here
