KEAT location on DrJack's BLIPMAPs:

DrJack's Forecast Method

DrJack: Upward velocity of air within the thermal. Glider descent rate must be subtracted to give the expected variometer reading.

DrJack: Maximum thermalling height over flat terrain under cloudless conditions at which the updraft velocity drops below 225 fpm.

DrJack: Cloudbase for small, non-extensive cumulus clouds in the BL, if such exist.

DrJack: Cloudbase for extensive BL clouds (OvercastDevelopment), if such exist.

DrJack: Speed and direction of the vector-averaged wind in the BL.
