Florida Weather 4/5/16

Florida infrared satellite imagery and clear skies provide a unique opportunity to look at the temperature differences over land and water.  The darker shades of gray represent warmer land and water temperatures while the lighter shades of gray represent colder temperatures.  This is a morning image hence the water areas over the peninsula appear warmer than the land.  This trend reverses (normally) during the day as land areas become warmer than inland lakes, etc.  Also of note is the warm water currents of the Gulf Loop Current which includes areas of the Gulf of Mexico and Gulf Stream along the Florida Straits and up the east coast.  The only cloud of note is the line of cumulus clouds that migrated off the Gulf Stream.  By comparison this line can be seen more clearly in the visible satellite image.  As indicated by the images mainly clear skies can be expected today.
