And to think that it's all just about to end from the next several months :cry:

But on the other hand perhaps this will be the summer of WIND :P

Yes, it was great last night. Here I had blown off the prospects earlier in the day and pretty much ignored what was blowing out the window at the office. I even left late looked around and said IT'S BLOWING and hit the beach.

Looking at the windgraph for yesterday it almost linearly went up from about 10 am to 7 pm, peaking with average winds of 17 mph gusting to 20 mph. Outstanding thermal winds!

It hit me last night that the drought we are in along with other conditions may be pretty good for late day thermals if not for our water situation. Normally we would also have those 10 mile high cumulonimbus clouds moving seaward from the everglades but that hasn't started yet either.

~Smiling~ that it was and looking at the Jupiter cam and the Boca "red reef" cam it looks as thought it's doing it's thing again :D


Here's to another afternoon session :cheers:

I kited a solo session last nite north of Lake Worth pier, I'm gonna have to try and make it down your way one day Rick and say hello in person :thumbsup:

Hope to see you there. Currently the windomatic has it at 15 kt. gusting from 14 to 17 kt. I think it might read a bit high and usually think of it in mph instead of kts. Still pretty good for this time of year. The good thermal winds keep coming through.

There are some clouds out west today but they don't look like much on color radar, yet!

Spoke too soon, looks like some heavy weather may be moving to the NE from the everglades. Have a care, the summer thermal cycle may have just started.

I squeezed in a session @ Hammock park in Boynton, from 5:15 till 7pm. I was keeping a close eye on those storms to the NW and when I saw that first bolt of lighting~ I called it quits.

Turns out to have been a good call all around, about 15 minutes after I hit the beach and wrapped it up. The wind died and switch NW as I drove home northward in the rain.

Glad to have caught it while it was there. This work **it really gets in the way sometimes~ LOL

Hope you were able to get U some :wink:

Glad you got some time in. I took all the stuff to the beach just in time for it to shift side offshore and drop off in speed. It looks like it came back in a while though somewhat. Still there were some pretty nasty squalls coming through with NWS warnings. The radar suggested that they might move to the north and south of the launch in Delray. I bagged it and headed home to do some work. Next time!

looking good outside as of 3:15pm 15-20 ENE and it looks as though it's going to hold all weekend 8)

RickI 04-28-2006 03:31 PM

Yes, the windomatic has it at 16 to 22 kts. average 18 kts. at 3:30 pm and it might be building. I feel what should be an excellent session coming on tonight! Have fun out there.
