Going to Soma Bay Thursday.
If I didn't have tendencies to depression before, I do after reading the long term forecast. I wonder..........
Here where I live, the prognosis can't be trusted many days ahead. But with the more consistent weather system in Egypt, I feat the forecasts are more accurate........

Are they????? Does anybody know ?????????

I don't know the answer to your question, but I share your pain! I am flying to Kenya for two weeks on Thursday, and the forecast looks terrible. I really hope the sea breezes aren't factored into the forecast, or something, and I get to kite!

Sorry for confusion!! ...I meant to say....The modified wind on Guru is pretty accurate.....so for the first few days of your trip it does not look good.

Just checked again and sat/sun now look good!!

I've been writing with a few kite schools down there today. They have lots of wind these days, so I guess there's hope.
If the wind is a unpredictable in Egypt as here in Denmark, there no reason to look a statistics more than 3 days ahead.

Anyway, if you say saturday/sunday now looks good it is definately improving. Thanks for improving my mood !
