Weather for Pigeon Fanciers.
The main concern for this last race for the BBC from Fougeres was the development of fog over night. After contacting the duty forecaster at the Met Office I was reliably informed that some localised fog was affecting some north French coastal areas. Checking the various weather cameras in northern France no fog or mist was detected. Any fog that had developed was forecast to soon burn off as the sun gained height in the sky. On the main land fog that was affecting the West Midlands and the West Country would also disperse by mid morning. Generally visibility in the channel was 5 miles plus outside any shallow fog banks. Otherwise broken cloud and sunshine was the order of the day over the complete race area. Winds direction difficult to determine and can only be described as light and variable. Any influence at all over north western France was from the southeast. After a successful season for the BBC good luck today to all competitors completing.
