Just got back from Merritt Island and had the opportunity to see an attempt at an attempted act. I took more pix while crossing the rivers but accidentally reformatted the Memory Stick while in the process of shooting these, so those pix are lost. In any case, I wasn't hoping for anything more than a small funnel. Mostly just putting these pix up to show those from not around here what this initial seabreeze stuff looks like. The pictures I lost definitely showed better structure though from a slightly greater distance.
As a forecast update, things are starting to look a tad flaky. This early onset of coastal convection combined with activity that has already worked half way across the state might spread anvil debris this way by 4:30pm. At time, though, it looks like that won't be an issue. The other fly in the ointment is that a bounary from SE Florida seems to be racing fairly rapidly NW toward the west coast seabreeze. When the collision occurs it could be as early as 4:00pm...however, if it collides far enough to the west and southwest it may be of little impact to the immediate east coast. Actually, it could set off an outflow boundary back to the coast late..like after 6:00pm. Gotta love the evoluation of the chaos.
