Default NOAA soaring forecast web page gone!

The NOAA web site used to have a "Soaring and winds aloft" page for various
locations. We used the one from San Diego, which included forecasts for many
sites in Southern California. I know they had similar pages for other parts
of the country. They just reorganized their web site and it's gone! I looked
around for a few minutes this morning (before hitting the road to the
gliderport) but could not find a new one.

Does anyone have any information about these pages? I emailed their
webmaster and if I get a reply I'll post it here.

I noticed that also about the NOAA Soaring information for Las Vegas, I had
worked with them to set that up.. it seems the "parent" URL has changed and
they don't have everything set up yet.. I sent an email to the local
WebMaster..

They did have a link to the new page... hopefully yours does too..

After a bit more hunting I found the Southern California soaring forecast at
http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/sgx/data/aviation/soar.htm

Unfortunately, the information is accurate... lift was dismal at Hemet
today, blown out by the wind. Next time...

There is a link at http://www.wrh.noaa.gov/vef/srg.php but it results in the
message "Sorry, no records are available". Maybe they'll get it fixed soon.
