The clouds right now

This is the cloud situation around TP5 Lermoos-Tiroler Zugspitz Arena right now. Those clouds don't look like good clouds for flying – they are ragged and not well-formed. Race watched Tom Payne explains: "These broken clouds show that there is some rising air – but not very much at all. It will make for very hard decisions for the athletes - do they climb to launch and risk a disappointing flight, or hike in the heat?" The overall flying situation out there towards TP5 is known as 'stable' – for athletes that means tricky, hard flying conditions.
