hi all,

looks like one of those sneaky really lifty south wind days may happen this afternoon. I will be heading to Mitchells Bay about 4pm if the l.st.clair buoy hits 15kts, but metro could be good as well. Depends if we get any sunny breaks, if we do it should go off. Also the hit today is forecast around 60F.

Here is the link for the St.Clair Buoy

Here is the pressure gradient for the great lakes updated every hour (this is the type of setup that normally brings a good thermal to Metro and Mitchell's Bay if we get some sunshine).

Ok Boys and Girls,

3:45PM, checked the St. Clair buoy, 13mph, good enough for me, Tim said to go if it hit 15mph, 99.9% of the time he's right, I kited solo til 6:45PM, it was blowing south at the beginning, I was powered on my 16M and smaller board, wind changed directions and it got crazy, I got in just in time before it got super gusty, I landed my blimp and pumped up my new 04 Broco 14M, it filled in solid and it was a sick afternoon, "Metro Thermal Alert"!
