Weekend Kiteboarding Forecast July 19th and 20th

Last Week:  Close.  Friday looked right on, but Saturday ended up being a little windier than I thought and it was rideable for a few hours close to 20 knots.  Sunday, I don’t think anywhere was windy enough.

Tally So Far: Nailed It! – 5, Close –8 , Way Off – 0

Today: Looks likes it has the ingredients for a summer thermal at Little Sable Point and Pt Betsie.  I’d say around 15 to 20 knots coming up late morning through the afternoon.

Saturday:  Looks very calm in the southern half of lake Michigan, but there will be a little flow in the northern half of lake Michigan.  This should allow for a thermal wind to develop at Pt Betsie.  15 to 20 knots.

Sunday: Looks like there could be a thermal wind at Pt Betsie, but it’s tough to say for sure.  It could easily change by Sunday.

It’s looking like a pretty calm weekend unless you willing to hit the road and take a chance on one of the points, today looking the best.  Otherwise, the weather looks nice for the weekend.  Have a good one!
