I have just checked the aviation met reports for Kent. Manston, to the north, has a light easterly whilst down on Romney Marsh Lydd has a South westerly. The latest weather analysis has a large complex (more than one centre) depression lying through UK. This is causing near Cyclonic (anticlockwise) wins around our County. Today would have been a good day for a tour de Kent with an option for tail wind for the whole circuit.
