Inversion Wave

Filed under: Weather Stuff — Murray Hay @ 12:01 pm

Ending the day getting some solo, then tandem flying up at the ‘Cairn’ with Susan up visiting Ali from ‘doon south’, we were treated to the clearest example of late evening lee wave acting on pollution trapped lying along the boundary layers generated by inversions that I have ever seen, unfortunatly the pictures do not do it full justice as the sun was just too low by the time I had my work camera. Worth posting none the less 🙂

Looking lower the smoke which had been rising to just below the inversion half an hour before is now ‘up side down’ in appearance showing just how low the warm air from above had dropped on sun down, not good for the last bit of flying of the day but intresting to see!
