Comment

Got a late start, but weather was beautiful. Much better than the GFS forcast and pretty close to the NAM forecast on XC Skies. Was watching it the last couple of days of OD and the NAM was making more sense this week so I went with it and it was right on. It seems if I call and or observe the actual as complared to the forcast models the preceeding few days then I can get a better idea as to which forecast model is going to be better for that particular week or day. This summers Southwest forecast models have been all over the place with very unusually bad soaring...today worked! Probably more luck than good management! Nothing replaces Doug Armstrongs forecasting in the Sierras and Nevada deserts though :-)
