It is similar again today just south in Delray. The thermal cloud stack is well inland, moving NE and hopefully will stay there. The wind might build, fingers crossed.

Caution is the way to go for sure. If you haven't already been out in conditions like this, a few times handing things well, it would be a good few days to sit out, especially in the waves. There are supposed to be some squalls coming through the SE later on today as well. The waves must have boosted some more overnight. Hope we don't have any guys rigging too big, doing inadequate preflighting or anything else ill advised and slamming into stuff along the shore.

Did anyone get messed up today? Hope not! It may have been gusting over 40 kts. offshore from Delray tonight based on the wind record. The waves seemed to range from about 6 to 12 ft.. Hazardous winds and waves to be sure. Conditions may be larger and the wind perhaps stronger tomorrow especially if there are squalls. We didn't have any for most of the evening. Looked liked they were hammering ashore further south and north though.

Key West went off nicely, I was out on 8-10 meter kites. Really nice smooth winds and warm too. The Sun was out all day.

Wind is coming, maybe, is already going off Jupiter and points north. Been watching it creep south since this morning. I guess it may be on the Delray area within an hour or so? Fingers crossed, could be around 20 mph from the NE, hope not from the N. Then again, it may stall as happens at times.
