Wind is forecast on the way to the SE later on tomorrow, Wednesday and back again Friday. Maybe some squalls too so be sure to look for them in the forecast and on the water. Wind is back, soon.

Oh yeah. Its looking better now. Not what I saw yesterday. This is going to be a slow moving front thats going to give us the full spectrum of the wind with a closeout from the NE just in time for the weekend.

SE 23 kts. in Delray and no squalls in sight, yet. Expect to see some possibly dangerous ones today but for now it is clear ... and at the office. Next time.

Yes, maybe 8 tacks worth after 4:30 pm? Wasn't the shortest session ever but well on the way. I opted to use a 7 m as it has particularly light bar pressure for my messed up wrists. Don't need to wear all the obnoxious splints with this setup. When I checked the wind online it looked doable, at the lower end. Got there, the first few tacks went fine, with a moderate level of power. Had nice seas too around 6 to 8 ft. outside. Eventually though I was having trouble riding upwind, at least as far as I wanted to go. I finally headed in, wind waited a bit decided it was lulling further and called it a day. It was still good to get out, all be it for a short ride. Who else got some today? Starting early was the way to go.

Sounds like what they used to call NE 15 to 20 kts., maybe. Rain at 20% suggests not a lot of squalls left.

If you get over there tomorrow what we had here today, it will be a lot more that 15 to 20. It was smoking in the Tampa Clearwater area today. Close to 30 at times and steady 23 to 25 kts. Hope you get it tomorrow on the east coast, have fun.

Yes. May get ridable for Sunday. This week has been the most squirly forecast. Normaly, these frontal forecasts are pretty solid.

Plus, whens the last time you saw a forcast like the one below for Deerfield to Ocean Reef.....12-17 knots......13-18 knots. They are distinguishing between 1 knot????

.TONIGHT...NORTH WINDS 17 TO 22 KNOTS. SEAS 3 TO 5 FEET.
INTRACOASTAL WATERS A MODERATE CHOP. SLIGHT CHANCE OF SHOWERS.
.SUNDAY...NORTHEAST WINDS 13 TO 18 KNOTS. SEAS 2 TO 4 FEET.
INTRACOASTAL WATERS CHOPPY IN EXPOSED AREAS. CHANCE OF SHOWERS.
.SUNDAY NIGHT...EAST WINDS 12 TO 17 KNOTS. SEAS 2 TO 4 FEET
SUBSIDING TO 2 FEET OR LESS. EAST SWELL 2 FEET. INTRACOASTAL WATERS
A MODERATE CHOP. CHANCE OF SHOWERS.

Yes, mainly off SE Florida though, still doing 5 kt. increments elsewhere. No clue why? Maybe they're giving us what we've been asking for, more accurate forecasts?

Glad you guys in Tampa had a great wind day!
