Welcome to the X-Pyr weather and soaring forecast application. XC Skies and X-Pyr have teamed up to provide real-time weather and forecasts along the race course. Use this application to review forecasts and conditions at turnpoints and athlete locations.
Click a turnpoint, route segment or anywhere on the map to review detailed weather and soaring conditions for today and the next upcoming days. The forecast data used in this application is updated 4 times a day at roughly 04, 10, 16, and 22 UTC.
Athlete positions will update every few minutes when selected, courtesy of Flymaster LiveTrack.

All times are shown in local Central European Summer Time (CEST). The selected forecast times are highlighted in yellow.
This application uses forecast data from the ICON European nested model, run by DWD. XC Skies then initializes parameterization and downscaling techniques to arrive at detailed forecasts for every 1km within the domain. Other forecsat models are available as xcskies.com, including Arome 2.5 km and the ICON 2.2 km, among many others.
