A cold front came in from the North today, bringing with it a full day (Saturday) of clouds and cool weather. I doubt that it was above 67 degrees all day.

It's nice to see a bit of the next season in the Bay Area. Given how similar our seasons tend to be, this is a good change of pace.

It shouldn't be too long before the first snow falls in the mountains.

A couple days ago I was trying decide if I should head up to Air Sailing to fly this weekend or next. On Friday decided on next weekend. There probably would have been good wave lift, but any thermal activity would have been capped for sure. Winds aloft were in the neighborhood of 30-40 knots at the ridge tops along the Sierra.

Now I'm hoping that we'll have a bit of decent post-frontal soaring in Hollister tomorrow. And, if luck is with me, we'll see a warming trend late next week and into the weekend. I'd like one last weekend of Nevada thermals before I take my glider for an annual inspection and transponder installation.

Yeah, that's the great thing about the weather here. We'll have some 70 degree days in December and January if recent history is any guide. :-)

It's raining this morning.
That means it's winter already.
I'm still wearing a hawaiian shirt, just to protest.

(oh, and arrr!)
