GPSL forecast update

Mark Conner N9XTN

​The tracks have moved about 90 degrees since yesterday, from southwest to southeast, so still lots of uncertainty still at 6 days out.  The ridge seems to be slowing its approach and a trough expected near the Great Lakes is trying to put Kansas into northwesterly flow aloft.  As before, timing of this transition will define our direction of flight.  Surface conditions remain about the same, except somewhat lighter winds are expected.​  Temps at launch should be in the low 70s, rising to 90 in the afternoon.  Dewpoints will be in the upper 50s.
