Default No booze for the weather forecasters

Wow. Did they really screw up the wind forecast from Miami to Jacksonville for today. It was supposed to be solid 15-25 knots every where along the coast. We were lucky if we got 10 knots. CHeck out the ikite graphs from all over.

What in the world happened. This is very unusual to get skunked when such a srong front pushes through.

Opposite problem here in the keys. Gusting to almost 40 in the morning but came down to a pretty good 20-25. Mostly 10, 12 and 13m kites.

Sorry about your dilemma. Gusting to almost 30 now. Gotta go!!

It happens sometimes, unfortunately. Despite that they made a good day of it at Crandon Park for Race Day, more to come on that. A good tip off is what the real time winds are doing up weather or where the system is coming from. You can sometimes get a preview of things to come to your area. More at:

Good news is there should be more strong fronts on the way from where that one came from!

Noel you have more than cold fronts going in the Keys for you. You also have that built in pressure gradient over the Keys that often enough that bumps the winds up. Enjoy it but don't be surprised to have more visitors between strong fronts from up this way.
