Sunday, 9/29, 8 am perception

The day looks post frontal with early season 50 or 60 mile potential, but there is some early wind on the west end of the course that could hinder the start. Expect the ridge line wind to back off some as the day progress, but the draw will increase so the onshore ocean flow may increase.

The lapse rate looks good up to about ridge line behind SB early but then better later in the day. Expect higher altitudes (6 or 7 K late in the day) and less wind in Ojai. Fillmore looks good midday, but less so late.

I mostly concur with Chris Heckman’s assessment (posted to SBSA Chat).
