next week\'s weather improvement

Probable improvement hinted, for the South at least, by the middle of next week. Even got a mention on this morning's Today (BBC R4)
ECMWF centre charts are suggesting it, too.
Keep you fingers, toes and anything else you can think of crossed.

Can't be .... I was thinking of taking a week off, starting in the middle of next week. But I'll keep fingers and toes crossed just in the off chance.

Re: next week\'s weather improvement

OK if the Azores high stabillises what is going to be the best option for a passage to the Azores. Convevtion says stick to the rhumb line or the west of it but what about taking the N or NE winds across the bay and the Trades down the Spanish and Portugesse coasts and then taking the optimum time to make the Westing to the islands. Any thoughts?

Re: next week\'s weather improvement

We are in Madeira at the moment waiting for lighter NE winds and lower swell condition between here and Santa Maria.

The problem is that the low over NW Africa is predicted to deepen towards the end of the week and produce a strong NE airflow all the way between here and the Azores, and even stronger up off the Portuguese coast. I would stay well offshore and waffle down the middle of the high if I was coming from the UK to the Azores just now.
