Spring Series 2006 Race 3 preparation Stage 3 (Update)

Winds are starting to back to South. Wide view of weather system shows south winds coming in From Buffalo across the lake. It is amazing to have all this data available at a glance. I will however need to get wireless connection at the boat so I can track this data on race days.

The bluffs are very protected and I can barely get a phone signal. The club however does offer a wireless connection.

Looking at this larger system I can see why now that when the winds are forecast from the South that sometimes they end up as West Southwest. Looks like a South wind can channel along the lake and the shoreline landscape seems to effect the wind and cause it to turn direction.

Wunderground stationmaps are a wonderful thing.
