Kendall's Call

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.

Kendall's Call

Post by Greg Kendall » Fri Mar 08, 2019 9:28 am

Just for anyone who's not stuck at work, I'm going to go out on a limb and say it's not blowing down today (Friday 3/8/19). It might be kind of West, but not down.

I think it could blow in as well. Van Nuys calls for west southwest around 1:00pm then back to northwest at 4:00pm. It will be cold at altitude!

Update 1:00pm Paraglider just landed at 12:50 pm local time and had a awesome flight in light cloud suck conditions. Highest altitude was 5,000' msl with lift everywhere. A little cold but he was dressed properly for the chill. flight time was around an hour. I hope the conditions are this good tomorrow !
