BLIPMAP FORECASTS
Czech Republic

(Kliněte zde pro českou verzi)

BLIPMAP stands for "Boundary Layer Information Prediction MAP" -- soaring weather forecast model. It has been developed by Dr. John W. (Jack) Glendening ("DrJack"), meteorologist and sailplane pilot. Data for maps on this webpage, are calculated by the RASP model locally on my server. In case you encounter any technical problems, please mail me at mkrupicka@volny.cz. More information on the meteorological model can be found on DrJack's RASP website. There you also find a discussion forum for questions about the model or problems with the forecast.

Maps for the current and for the next days are generated over night. Please check the time imprinted on the maps.

Please note that all maps are experimental and the underlying model is under development. I take no liability for anything and these maps cannot substitute for a real meteorological pre-flight preparation. The pilot is always responsible himself for everything he does.

For de-briefing after your flight, yesterday's maps are here.
