Messac 2010 - Saturday 22nd May 2010
Saturday Morning (22nd May 2010)
Good news the birds at Messac were liberated at 0645 hrs in a very light East North East wind. I will update this site with the early times and provisional result as soon as possible this evening. Good luck."
Steve Appleby's Weather for Pigeon Fanciers
UPDATED SATURDAY 22nd MAY AT 09:00 HOURS.
A large high pressure system centred over northern Europe will be responsible for fine dry conditions today. A cool start before temperatures rise, probably to a maximum of 25C which is quite warm. Using the NOAA satellite looking down from the sky just the southeast is affected by cloud cover. The remainder of England and northern France is under clear blue skies. Several areas inland and over the channel are affected by early morning fog which will soon burn off. Having spoken to the Met Office forecaster early this morning I have been informed that fortunately this fog in the channel is only shallow in nature, reaching a maximum height of about 300 feet. Any fog that does persist will not be an obstruction to the pigeons as they will be racing well above it. Winds will come from the east or north east and will be light in strength over land. Over the open sea they will reach force 3 possibly force 4. So to sum up, conditions today are good for racing and good luck to all my visitors.
