Operational Status Messages

Post by John Brake » Tue Jul 16, 2019 5:35 pm

I'm leaving Friday morning for a trip, returning at the end of the month.

Anyone with access to soaring weather info care to take over the posting of the Operational Status messages? I normally post before mid-evening each day about the flying for the next day. I think it will be challenging for me to do the postings while I'm away. The messages appear in the forum and also on our main website.

So... any volunteers?
John

Where do you get "soaring weather info"?

The standard 'consumer' weather forecasts, windy.com, Dr Jack, Frank's forecast, and Skysight seems to be popular these days, but it's subscription only and I don't have one :(

The fireplace computer in the clubhouse has a working Skysight using my subscription. All the weather sites including this can be found when using the Chrome browser on any of the club computers, under the Folder 'Weather' on the favorites line near the top of the window.

You make a good point Jim and so I have sent to your email address a presentation and some links to sites you can use.
