Arizona Fun
A southern Arizona RC pilot has to endure hardships waiting for a window of good weather to fly. Here is the grim forecast I have to face most days...

This Afternoon: Mostly sunny, with a high near 90. West southwest wind around 6 mph.

Tonight: Partly cloudy, with a low around 57. West northwest wind at 8 mph becoming south.

Monday: Mostly sunny, with a high near 91. South wind around 5 mph becoming calm.

Monday Night: Mostly clear, with a low around 57. West northwest wind at 5 mph becoming south southwest.

Tuesday: Sunny, with a high near 90. South wind between 5 and 7 mph.

Arizonafun, how do you cope? Tomorrows forecast for where I am - Highs of 5c (41f), rain showers, turning to heavy rain later, with winds up to 25 mph on the high ground, and gusts up to 40 (Yep, where I am!).
Yet...A week ago I was sweating like a pig in 22c (71.6f) heat, with no wind...at the start of April. And everyone wonders why the british talk about the weather?

44* , cloudy and 15 mph wind out of the west, not too bad, but will get better. Tried 2 planes yesterday and it was definitely too windy for them.

,Well it's 65* plus and 20 to 30 mph winds here in NY. I flew my F-15 and Pitts with 6 packs between both. I'm glad I used my 65 cell count battery's because winds gusted over 40 a few times.

We finally are having good weather after around a month of severe wind and rain from what apparently is a passing cyclone centered in Northern Australia. Went to the field yesterday and ate 3 batteries before dusk...

Day started good. Weather Guesser said light wind. WRONG! Drove 35 minutes to the field, winged up my planes and waited. 3 of us sat and waited for nothing! I de-winged my planes, drove home and I'm now having a beverage that has olives in it. I feel better.
