Flying Weekend 5th/6th September 2020

After a very windy day on Thursday 3rd, the weather for the weekend is looking more promising.

Flying is scheduled to take place on both Saturday and Sunday.

Saturday is forecast to be fine with light to moderate SW winds which are conditions usually quite good for thermalling if it is sunny as well.

Sunday is forecast to be a little cooler with light to moderate E/NE winds, cloud increasing in the afternoon, with a possibility of light shower or two. (Note: Often, forecsts for showers in these conditions of light Easterlies do not reach Mangrove).
