Columbus Day Regatta
Posted by Vivian Gonzalez
The Columbus Day Regatta takes place this weekend and I know a lot of you want to know what conditions will be like out on the water. Take out your boats!!! Bay waters are going to be at a light chop with a NE wind heading into Monday between 6-11 knots. A quick moving sprinkle is possible, but overall looking great. However, for those of you planning to work on a nice South Florida tan... the UV index will be at a high range, so you want to make sure you soak up the sun responsibly, slather up the sunscreen and reapply often! Also, the weekend will be more Summer-Like than Fall and we want for everyone to stay hydrated, by drinking plenty of water.
Saturday: Our weather will be mostly dry much like Friday with high pressure in place. We will only see an occasional sprinkle and an inland thunderstorm.
Sunday: A few more showers could be possible with a weak front entering into North-Central Florida.
Columbus Day: The front fades over us not bringing any noticeable temperature differences. What it will do is bring drier, less humid air.
Tropics Update: All is quiet. There is only one minor disturbance over the Bahamas (not being followed by NHC) that is just bringing scattered showers to the Bahamas.
Have a wonderful weekend South Florida and make it a safe one!
