How much difference does weather make to F5B legs?

Out practicing on the weekend with some of the boys and the scores were a good 5-10% higher on Sunday afternoon when the thermals were about than they were early this morning when it was cooler. Also do thumbs have something to do with it? Maybe some of us just aren't morning people?

Just wondering how many legs a thermal or better weather is actually worth?

On the other side of the coin how far down will the scores be and how much more run time will you need if its cold and windy and or wet?

I've seen up to 4 legs. If you compare scores of the best pilots(with actual rules), you'll see they rarely go under 43-44, and almost never over 48...
