It's a Beautiful TGIF Morning in Cape Canaveral

Photos are from the beach this morning.That's somebody's home in the center
Today: I should just say "read yesterdays" because the thinking for what today will be like hasn't changed. Nor has the thinking changed for Saturday and Sunday. But I'll will be much like yesterday with less chance of local activitiy in the morning...but still a small chance of something before 2pm. Steering winds at the Space Center are 5 knots or less the whole way up toe 30,000 ft...and there's plenty of moisture. Problem is that with such light winds and no apparent trigging mechanism I'm not sure how things will get started too early. So that does pose a small problem..but for the most part even if something does go up locally between Ft Pierce and Oak Hill east of US will be weak and small. Not sure why there isn't a spout potential this morning advertised... LOTS to learn.

By this afternoon in the 3-5pm time frame the seabreezes on both coasts will have become active. With the ridge axis oriented over us that way it is..the bulk of the activity will be right along "lightning alley " (the I-4 corridor). Have a hard time rationalizing how anything will make it back to the coast South of Oak Hill, but there is that remote chance we could see another Fish Camp scenario set up after dark which would be great for lightning shots.

Tomorrow: the influence of Bill will be pulling away (subsidence) and the upper level trough will begin to penetrate North Florida..allowing for a SW flow to become established. For now, I'll leave tomorrow and Sunday both at typical afternoon and early evening stuff only as good ops, and not in the morning. ..and will vary that thought based on how things evolve. There are several possiblites as to what they might be...but I'm leaving out the ifs, ands, or buts and prefer just to provide that much of a heads up for now.
