The rainy season is approaching

It's getting showery in southern Namibia. As the season progresses, the Inertropical Convergence Zone advances southward. In this air mass, showers and thunderstorms are now announced again and again.

Although the cumuli are now showing up early over Bitterwasser and the base heights level off at 1700 meters above ground from midday – at least around 3000 meters MSL – the routes are modest compared to the main season. Who likes unpleasant surprises that block the way back in the form of showers? It's better not to go too far. So prepare for future good Central European gliding conditions. Today at least four tireless teams could be observed in the OGN.

Looking forward to the season
