NOA shows the low right off the central Florida coast now. So why do we see ankle to knee high conditions? How does that work?
I hear you SIsurfdog re the injury. I got another 6-8 weeks rehabbing the broken finger. No problem long boarding small ankle to thigh high stuff-- but any bigger would be risky. You and I might be responsible for all the flatness the past month
Got this off a meteorology site:
"As noted above, organization is much improved this morning with convection starting to consolidate around the center and banding beginning to develop on the west side of the center. All of the late-cycle models now bring the system either very close to or over east central Florida - probably as a modest tropical storm. Given the upswing in organization and the continued retrogression of the Gulf ridge, the model consensus certainly seems like a viable solution. Current motion is south, perhaps starting to lean toward south southwest at 5 or 6 knots, however, central pressure still remains high. Regarding intensification, the proximity to land is likely to be offset by the proximity to the Gulf Stream.
I'll eat my hat if anything materializes from this. Shaping a new board right now which all but guarantees a complete dissipation of any tropical wave. I'm so happy to see it go, I have yard work to do.
i'm not saying anything really but what kind of hat do you have?
