Breeze holding, plus king tides

Local Weather:

Look for a mix of sun and clouds this Thursday with scattered sprinkles/light showers on the breeze. Unfortunately the wind is causing high seas and it is not advised to be out on the waters. Advisories remain in effect for swimmers and boaters. The wind will start to calm down over the weekend as a week front approaches north Florida. This front will slightly increase out moisture levels, even though rain chances will be around 30%. However, models are indicating that we could receive a minor cooldown early next week. Nothing significant, but wake up temperatures will feel just right in the upper 60’s. Fall weather South Florida style!

King tides will be an issue over the next few days. There is a celestial cause behind them. It happens with the sun, moon and earth align. This means that the moon is at it’s closest point to the earth creating an extra pull on the ocean. Therefore, during times of high tide we see minor coastal flooding. Next high tides:

Tropical Update:
The eye of Hurricane Nicole is passing over Bermuda. There are reports of sustained hurricane-force winds of 92 mph. It should be moving away from the area this afternoon gradually weakening. Hopefully it will fall apart this weekend not bothering anyone else.

The rest of the tropics are quiet.

Have a wonderful day South Florida and make it a safe one!
