The weather and safety outlook for Thursday 26 May 2022 (Freedom day 22!)

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

Day 22 of freedom! (Zero SOD Cov rules in play!)

Good morning all you amazing Wild2Fly people! A sweet day of flying along the Wilderness coast yesterday but today looking a tad slower. ;) The SAH pushing in the cool maritime air form the SW onto the entire WC today with a chance of light rain along the southern mountains. Winds are southerly around CT with lots of clouds around. Perhaps a wind-shadow day on the cards today. PV looking doable with weak climbs to Mnt top height SW winds here. The GR with an initial SW push but then dropping to lighter stuff from late morning onwards it seems. PE and EL with W to WSW winds and more chance of rain. The winds remain WSW all the way to the Tropopause for a 120lt finish up there. Freezing level around 10 - 11k. For Wilderness sunrise is at 7:23, setting at 17:31 – 10 hours and 8 min day light hours. High at 13:30. Wilderness expected max at 17 degrees C. Have a lekker day and don’t forget to get closer to God! :))

Hint today: Learn to fly with one hand - it is an important skill. :)
