WHAT'S WRONG WITH THE WEATHER?

Postby Flooi » Sat Nov 03, 2012 6:17 pm

On the Highveld wind has been gusting daily from sunrise to sunset more or less
on a daily basis for the last 2 months. Do you fly your microlight or are you grounded? ($$) ($$) ($$)

It really is a bad situation! I got in a quick 90mins this morning and landed comfortably but conditions deteriorated badly after 8am!

I have just pinged the Aeroden weather station now an it is gusting to 16 knots on the ground!! ##

The cherry on the top is that the weather prediction for Aeroden for this weekend coming, well actually from Thursday, is cloud, rain and wind!!! ## ##

Alan Bundy, is this the lead up to 21 Dec 2012?? :wink:
