So far nothing. Supposed to blow this afternoon - 1pm - ?

Here's a good link for fairly accurate real-time wind at Dyke 8 - http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/mesowest/getobe ... banner=off

I'm confident it will be blowing but I don't know if it will be enough...

After reading the NOAA Sacramento Forcase Disscussion

http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/sto/versprod.ph ... to&pil=afd

It appears it might very well blow some time in the next few days but it may be in the mountains..

We will all have to wait see because it's not blowing here at all (currently)

Cross your fingers and call me if you like as I live pretty close to Folsom and can just look out the window and see if the trees are moving..

From what I can tell, NOAA is indicating winds up to 14mph near the Afterbay! = Big Kites!

It's blowin' good right now here in Sac.

Folsom is forecasted for Moderate winds (13-18mph) this afternoon (2-3pm - dusk). I'm planning on going out around 2pm.

Anyone want to join me for a possible session? The winds are from the N so Dyke 8/Folsom Point is the spot!
