Anybody Recognize that Glowing Fireball in the Sky?

KPWT sits up on a hill and in a slight valley, so even a sunny morning downtown can turn into a scud-loving mess by the time I get to the airport. Today though looks like a summer day in Seattle.

We’ll see how the winds develop. As the sun heats up the surrounding terrain, the winds (theoretically) could start whipping through here, making it too gusty and turbulent to fly by mid-afternoon.

  1. Well, those bumpy winds never did materialize. Our other CFI had a pre-solo student come in for a much-deserved run at practicing autos, but for me the day was a complete bust…no students on the books meant I had to idly sit by watching the fixed wingers pollute the pattern.
