Good desert flyin Wednesday?

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.

The chatter is already starting for this Wednesday May 17th. :wink:

From an early look BlipMap ETA model it looks like 15k in the desert. Pine Mtn looks inviting as does Garlock, and BlackHawk. Winds light out of the SE, with Thermal velocites through 800'/min. :o

Here at Sylmar, we'll be right on the edge of it. I'm charging my equipment just in case the conditions improve. 8)

Maybe too good, err too unstable

Reports from pilots that went to Pine today. :o Wonder what tomorrow will bring?

From the looks of it, conditions will likely blow-up in the desert once again tomorrow with the southerly tropical flow. Here at Sylmar the inversion is still a major influence. :evil:
