Winter Weather

January is upon us and inevitably the weather will become increasingly worse, including the wind conditions; (lots of sideways action to come).

I’m currently routing down to LEMG and experiencing 100kt+ on the nose which is a drift angle of roughly 9°!

What weather conditions are we all experiencing today?

I recommend using windy.com as it gives you all the winds at different altitudes.
Currently these are the winds at FL390 (you can’t select FL370 so FL390 is the closest)

I don’t think it was posed as a question, it was more of a statement and a general question to what winds everyone else is getting due to the colder weather.

For me it’s just gonna be depression. Rain, painfully strong winds, mud and the alien substance known as snow.

I was flying over the English Channel at 28.000 ft and had a head wind of over 100 kts

That’s a interesting way if naming headwind 🙃

For some reason in New York, it’s 70 degrees and sunny, even though it’s January. (???)

Canada is being weird. Usually here in toronto, we’d be in the middle of a snow storm. Not this year. This year in Toronto, it’s all rain. When we do get snow, it stays for a day or two and gets washed away from the rain.

Its called global warming, my friends :)

I’m in the UK and the weather here is suspiciously uneven.
Some mornings I have to put multiple layers on until I look like Ernest Shackleton and the other morning it’s 12°c which for England in January is positively tropical.
