There is an acronym index at the bottom of the report for those not understanding some of the weather jargon. ;)

3 March 2024

Good morning all you amazing Wild2Fly people! :)) And a great day of flying yesterday - PR seemed to take the site of the day prize. But plenty of flying along the CP/Hotel, Serps and Sedge areas. A few were hopeful to go XC from Serps but it never got as good as what was forecasted. Oh well... ;) Today the SAH pushing in fresh SE winds and loads of moisture. Low clouds out to sea that will move in later on with the rain but for the morning it does look like we could be getting a gap with some good flying at Map! :)) But get there early because it is going to be blown out by 10/11ish. Of course Gerrickes and Buffs could work but it blows out at least an hour earlier at these spots. Rain moving in from after lunch more or less... Lots of on off rain over the next few days but lets hope with some luck we get a gap between the rains to fly! Lekker! ;) Reminder of Lets'Fly SIV 15-20th of this month and as always, dont forget to make a move in getting closer to God - thats what life is all about. :)) (Gal 5:13-26, Rom 5:12) :)
