2016 ORCV WINTER SERIES- GEELONG WEEKEND WEATHER OUTLOOK
The weather for Port Phillip this weekend is being driven by a broad high pressure system moving across the north of the state.
Around start time on Saturday, the BOM is forecasting 10-15 knot winds from the WSW, lightening by mid-morning and then freshening by early afternoon from the SW. Cloudy,16C with the possibility of some rain.
For the Women’s race back to Melbourne, winds are forecast to be up to 10 knots ( let’s hope so!) from the WNW around start time, going gradually lighter ( be particularly wary in the centre of Port Phillip!) and shifting to the north and even east. 17C, cloudy with a slight chance of rain. Let’s hope the wind gods cooperate so that we can get the race completed and in reasonable time.
