This is the semi stationary area over the NE GOM.
To be honest a part of it is over Florida as well.
The area in the NE GOM has 20% chances.
Interestingly the area N of PR also has 20% chances.
Not high chances but something to look at indeed.
One thing Dave Schwartz used to point out often...
...is when air dives down somewhere....
..somewhere else the air bounces up.
Note the flow moving South into the GOM.
On the other side of Florida the weather bounces North.
He did a whole long segment on it once.
Maybe he sang or danced but he taught people about weather.
More than just pointing at the screen he brought the screen alive.
He made weather alive, real and understandable.
I hadn't planned on talking on Dave but I am.
Happens. Hard to believe he's gone.
Been raining a lot off and on the last few days.
Note that bright red line that formed on East Coast.
So it's late on a Saturday night and the rain in Miami finally stopped.
Haven't seen it rain so much like that in a long time.
Sat on the front porch watching it rain and rain.
My best friend Sharon said it seemed tropical.
Sort of between two systems.
See the upper level low between the two areas?
Looks like an old black hurricane symbol.
Anyway let's hope the rain in N Florida doesn't mess up the camping grounds.
Kids... hopefully architecture students would watch their weather apps right?
Systems close in sometimes surprise us..
So keep watching.
Nothing happening fast right now.
And waves keep rolling off of Africa.
Enjoying some quiet time with my kids..
.. my best friends.
