About the only things I am confident about are that it will be hot and blue. As for lift, SkySight seems pessimistic, the HRRR model seems optimistic. I’ll hedge my bets and go with climbs to about 5,000 ft msl. Wind SW, <10 kts.
Yesterday was not as good as I hoped (and forecast!) Local (PGC) conditions were in fact quite good and close to forecast -however you did not have to go very far to find much weaker conditions. I’m guessing that the storm to the north had something to do with it.
