Winds of Change...
Locally a very weak front has fallen apart of our area, most of the rain this morning affected the Keys.Once the front crawled through the are it took most of the cloud cover with it. By the afternoon this front will be lingering over the Florida Straits so we are keeping a slight chance for afternoon showers in the forecast. Looking ahead the winds of change will start to occur later tonight and by tomorrow as our winds tonight will be in from the north and by tomorrow we anticipate a northeast to east wind. The ocean breeze is all due to an area of high pressure that is building in from the Mid-Atlantic states toward the Western Atlantic bringing us an ocean breeze in the forecast from the middle to the end of the week.
In the tropics:
We have newly formed Tropical Depression Fourteen located 1210 miles East of the Lesser Antilles. This system has winds sustained at 35mph and is moving to the west at 10mph. This system will NOT be a threat to land. Some strengthening is possible with this system in the next 48 hours and it could become a tropical storm later today or tonight.
Tropical Storm Michael is continuing to weaken and is forecasted to become a remnant low later today.
And as of 11 am Leslie becomes a Post-Tropical Cyclone as it begins to move away from Newfoundland. Leslie has winds sustained at 70mph and is moving N/NE at 45mph. The 11 am advisory is the last advisory on Leslie.
Today is September 11th 2012 and is a day of honoring and remembering those we lost 11 years ago. Thoughts and prayers go out to you all.
Have a great day!
