WEATHER

This is the NEXRAD regional radar shot from 07:00 Wednesday morning.  It’s amazing how close mixed and frozen precipitation was to the Florida Sea Base.  Our temperatures have dropped a few degrees, but comparatively, we are still toasty.

Miami and the northern Keys experienced a foggy morning yesterday.  Fog is a rare experience in the area of operations usually visited by Florida Sea Base crews.  Captains Rich and Carol Beliveau can tell you a funny story about our first experience with fog on the bay near base.

We had some heavy fog/rain bands south of us yesterday afternoon.

The wind has continued to blow from the West.  It has increased to 17 knots this morning.  Rain is likely coming to the Keys.  How much and whether we will see any is, of course, the question.  We have a 50% chance today, 70% chance tonight and 50% chance again tomorrow.  I am going to move my car out from under the funeral home awning that serves as my garage and hope we get a down-pour.  We refer to that as a Key’s car wash.  Our resident ospreys have new chicks and they like to sit atop the mast on Escape while they eat their fish. The deck could also use a good washing to remove some of the fish gusts and osprey poop.  So rain or no rain, there are good points either way.

The 06:10 radar image from Weather Underground shows a thin, but intense line of showers is rapidly approaching.
