This was pretty typical for summertime wave . There was too much thermal
activity for a weak wave to set up properly. Sometimes late in the
afternoon as thermal activity dies a nice wave can set up and run right
into the evening. I have always wondered what it would be like to be up
there with sunset lenticulars . From the ground they look awesome !!!

That's indeed what I got today. I think I hit marginal wave once or twice
but it was so patchy and the winds were too southerly so I couldn't keep it
long enough to get well above the clouds and into consistent laminar wave.
Ridges were working nicely though later in the afternoon. I'm tied down for
the night, so I'll give it a go tomorrow.

SkySight is showing weak wave for Saturday and expect some rotor and
broken thermals. I think it the wave will be disorganized.
Sunday the winds calm down but a mediocre blue day expected.

So tomorrow my guess is we should get weak to moderate wave, I'm seeing
30-35 knot SW winds at 18k throughout the entire region. Not sure if it'll
blue or lenny wave. The convective lift will only go to the low teens in
our area, so I don't think the convection will interfere much with the
wave, especially early. Some chance of rain just W of us early around noon.
The winds will remain throughout the day so with a late landing, a nice
long distance flight is a real possibility.
Sunday looks like a weak thermal day. Probably blue, again lift going
into the low teens. 15 knots or so of SW winds aloft, enough to make the
thermals harder to work but most likely not enough for wave.
I plan on giving it a go both days as usual.

It looks like we have a front moving through. The RASP and NAM show high
southwest winds in the boundary layer and relatively low max attainable
There is indication from the RASP 500 mb vertical velocity that there
could be wave. What are you all seeing and who is planning to fly this
