16 =========== Todd Herzog *AT* ADG (Adrian, MI)
Can be a better predictor of severe wx than the national severe stroms forcast labs!
31 =========== ---------- *AT* Elbert, CO
Overdevelopment is about the biggest factor in Colorado soaring.
32 =========== ---------- *AT* Menomonie, WI
Is interesting, but usually other wx data confirm this.
38 =========== Martin Hellman *AT* Hayward, CA
Not used as much as the others checked, so not as sure of accuracy.
39 =========== Tom Saunders *AT* Blairstown, NJ 1N7
Have not keep records but think it is accurate.
40 =========== ---------- *AT* Boulder, CO
Use the CAPE map instead - it seems more intuitive to understand.
46 =========== Gale Winnett *AT* Marion Municipal Airport, Marion, OH
Had not seen reference to this info before.
53 =========== Terence Honikman *AT* Santa Barbara, CA
Sometimes go here when RH screen indicates the need.
56 =========== J Meier *AT* Mancos, CO
Use this to help with when I should launch--earlier or later
58 =========== ---------- *AT* Terry(TYQ) Indianapolis, IN
Some additional simple explanation as to the meaning of the number scale, or possible clarification as to what numbers mean what might help whereever the maps use pos/neg numbers. Just saying higher means XXX doesn't help if you don't know the practical effect.
59 =========== Frank Peel *AT* Fremont, CA
OD is very uncommon here except during stormy weather.
62 =========== Matt Gillis *AT* Hollister, CA; Truckee, CA
Particularily useful for the Great Basin where intrusions of sub tropical moisture can make or break the day. It is helpful for picking direction of flight.
88 =========== ---------- *AT* Crazy Creek, CA
Not really a factor at my home airport
101 =========== Tom Hubbard *AT* Hollister, CA
No real reason not to use.
102 =========== ---------- *AT* HDH (HI), TRK (CA), MEV (NV)
Next best thing to radar or center weather.
135 =========== Harry Fox *AT* Hollister, CA ; Truckee, NV
This seems pretty good, but I don't have a lot of experience with it.
167 =========== Walter Rogers *AT* California City, CA
I couldn't find the definition in your documentation. Is this the difference between the height of the BL and the LCL? I prefer to use CAPE, but that's because i'm a meteorologist.
169 =========== Chris Cioffi *AT* Manquin Flight Park, Richmond, VA
Since OD can occur in a relatively small geographical area it is probably more useful to pilots who are going to cover some distance and are more likely to care about this over the course of a long flight.
