Matthew, I like your approach to gliding and especially the thorough preparation ahead of planned flights.

I also have videos on how I use SkySight.io to plan a task around the weather, see below:

Default SkySight forecast available for SW USA

I have had a number of queries offlist about SkySight's coverage - we cover almost all of the US now, barring an area around North Dakota/Minnesota.
Coverage will be extended there too if demand exists.

Today in Moriarty the GFS forecast was the most accurate

One of the features from Dr. Jack that I like but is missing from XCSkies is CU Potential.

Does Skysight have that?

I find it useful because just having "yes / no" to cumulus isn't nearly as informative as the likelihood of them.

Kurt et al:
Skysight has the following regarding cloud potential.
Boundary Layer Cloud Cover
Low Level Cloud Cover (up to FL130)
Mid Level Cloud Cover (FL130 - 330)
High Level Cloud Cover (FL330 up)

Hi Kurt,
Yes it does, and SkySight calls this "Cu Depth". The concept is identical.
Cheers,
Matthew

I would like to add that the convergence forecast on skysight is very good. Certainly helped in my last flight.

Thanks Matthew.

Best Regards,
Daniel
