Florida Weather 4/3/16

Florida visible satellite imagery shows a much drier airmass over the state.  The northern half of the state is cloud free.  Jet stream level winds shown by the high level cirrus clouds stretching across the Gulf of Mexico, Florida, and western Atlantic Ocean.  Another feature of note is the surface cold front now located along the Florida Straits.  Note the rope cloud south of the Florida Keys marking the front.



Florida Weather 4/2/16

Florida visible satellite imagery shows a line of strong to severe thunderstorms across the eastern Gulf of Mexico and Florida.  This line will travel eastward throughout the day as a cold front moves in from the northwest.  Due to the early morning sun angle a cloud shadow (higher cloud shadow on lower cloud) can be seen just to the left of the line of storms over the Gulf of Mexico.
