However, to form good wave there are a few other factors that need to be in place. Winds with a lot of east in it. Good. There should be increasing wind speeds with height. Today’s atmospheric soundings indicated that that the airspeeds would be high at flying heights but would be more or less constant with height. Ok I’ve seen some good wave with this wind profile. The killer blow though was the temperature profile. There needs to be an inversion fairly low down indicating the presence of alternating layers of stable and unstable air. There was a weak inversion but it was relatively high ( 4000+ feet ).
