Where is the wind?
Will be down in the Keys from Nov. 23 to Nov. 29 and it seems like the wind season has been slow to start?

Actually this is pretty normal. Winds usually start @ middle to end of November. Been kind of dead for a week or two but a few morning sessions if you are ready for it. We're waiting for you to bring the wind with you.

Actually, last year we had our first big wind front the 3rd day of September. 3more back to back 20 knot fronts through September and 3 more in October followed. That was sweet. This sucks.

I'm only saying that on average, this is normal. Last year was probably the exception. Of course when was the last time you remember (hurricanes don't count) a high pressure system giving us 30-40 mph winds for 4-5 days so early in the season?

How many days out do you guys generally look at the forecast? As of now, doesn't look like any wind within the next week.

This time of year (frontal season) if you see a blip on the long term forecast (usually a week out) that means something is coming. The day it comes may be delayed a day or move up a day. Look for the blips that start with a wind shift with light variable winds the day before then a 15-20 knot forecast usually E to NE starting the following day. Forecasyt are usually solid 3 days and earlier.

Last year was an exception but we can only hope. This seasons frequency really does suck so far. I think it all got packed into that 30+ system.

Interesting that we have had more seabreezes this season in sarasota than usual so far.Rideable at 15+many days of the week.Supposedly this is a strong el nino year and from what I'm told that means more west winds-maybe thats shutting down the prevailing east wind you guys in the keys get? Hope your season gets going!

I come down every year and there is usually wind, what happened didn't you guys do your wind dance lol ? I will start my dance maybe if we all do it together haha...:p

And all of a sudden, BAM! The forecast changes and there's 20 knots for tuesday afternoon and wednesday and more for friday.

troubleshooter 11-21-2009 06:32 PM
