Clouds and Wind

Thursday was looking pretty bad early on. Sea was calm, wind was light and from every direction, and it was cloudy. Still, by about 2:00pm the wind had come in and we were kiting. More importantly, the forecast is looking good for a whole week. No nuking days, but good enough to kite. Water temp is still ridiculously warm, 70 degrees or more.

We've had some good days and some disappointing days and the forecasts haven't been too good at predicting which days will be best. Today looks good and the next week looks weak.

You Never Know

Here in town, San  Carlos, it can be calm or even blowing out of the south and yet it still may be blowing out at the beach. Most of this week has been like that. Yesterday looked terrible just five minutes away from the beach but we all had a good day, although a bit gusty. I am writing this at 11:30am and the sea is calm, the sky is cloudy, almost no wind, and the boats in the bay are pointing in all different directions, but I am still expecting to see wind when I go out there in a couple of hours.

Saturday was okay but the wind started to turn to the north and got a bit gusty and weird. Sunday should be strong and nasty, really bad near shore.

North Winds

This weekend forecast is looking mixed. Saturday will be light but should be enough. Sunday and Monday will have more wind but the forecast says it will be from too northerly direction. We've had days lately that have been better than the forecasts, so let's hope that continues.

Update: They are predicting clouds for Saturday so it may not blow as much as I thought.

Cold Water is Coming

Sunday we're going to have light winds, kitable but not much power. Monday and Tuesday look more promising. The water is cooling off quickly. It is already down to 77 Fahrenheit or 25 Celsius. Not cold but the wind chill can be uncomfortable.
