What of today's activities. Well the light winds were from the NE at ground level and somewhat more easterly aloft. Regular readers will know that when the wind has east in it there is a possibility of wave at this airfield. There were definitely signs of this today. A cap cloud was pinned down across the higher Tors to the east. There was a line of cloud sitting more or less North - South over the west end of the airfield.
