That's the earliest I've ever seen the thermal kick in!

Not likely a thermal at 4 am (no sun). More likely pressure push trying to disguise itself as thermal (graph shape).

It doesn't take sun for a thermal, just temperature. It just took the coast to cool down enough during the night while Lillooet stayed at 25 degrees to cause it to kick in.

Definitely the Thermal kicking in from the Gradient like Slappy Said.
Its a mixed thermal/frontal which is why it is so gusty and strong.
Should see some BIG woo numbers today! Wish I could go :(
Who ever does make it, have fun!! :D 8-) :mrgreen:

Two nights in a row now it hasn't shut off. Going strong 51 hours now and will go at least until tonight.
