Happy Pi Day - 3.14 (10)

Pi Day is a holiday held to celebrate the mathematical constant π (pi) (in the mm/dd date notation: 3/14); since 3, 1 and 4 are the first three digits of π. March 14 is also the birthday of Albert Einstein .

Another blustery, clear, not cool but not warm day in store for Central Florida on this famous Pi Day (and maybe not so coincidentally Albert Einstein's birth date). Can it get any better? You bet! Let's add on about 10 degrees and reduce the wind by 10 mph and we'd have a perfect day, but such will not be the case. Instead, we have to contend with cool mornings dag-nab-it, and that nasty wind. Complain, complain (I know). In reality, nothing to complain about today unless one is trying to read the newspaper by an 'unsheltered from the wind' pool. "Hey, there goes the sports section into the water." Heck if I'd go in after it with the water as cold as it is.

TODAY: Another negligible impact day in store for the second half of the weekend. Sounding data from the Space Meteorological Group (SMG) and KSC profilers are all indicating that the wind just above the surface is still blowing at an approximately healthy 27kts. So, despite the light wind that we have at the time of this writing, once the sun starts glaring full bore and breaks the minuscule inversion those winds will mix to the surface and create yet another breezy day under mainly clear skies. High temperature of 70 degrees plus or minus a degree or two.

TONIGHT: Same as last night with a low in the mid-upper 50s depending on one's locale.

TOMORROW: Let's just take a print out and run it through the copy machine. More of the same although the wind might be just a smidgen lighter. High of 70.

REST OF THE WEEK: Not too often one can sum up an entire week in one sentence, but here goes. Slight increase in clouds late Tuesday through Wednesday, decreasing wind, and temperatures possibly dropping (yes, dropping) a notch with a high of 69 and lows in the low-mid 50s. There. Did it.

Rain you ask? Highly unlikely but we're going to go with the infamous silent 10 percent chance of a barely detectable sprinkle on Wednesday just to make things interesting. For the most part, if not all of it...none.

WHEN IS THERE AN APPRECIABLE CHANGE?: Seemingly never but let's shoot for next weekend. We might warm to temperatures that are what would be considered right at normal.

So I've managed to write a couple of paragraphs for you after all. Have a Happy Pi Day in recognition to your favorite mathematician. What? You don't have one?!
