September’s Arrival

Here She Comes
Here She Comes

It is better late than never. Last night the cold front pushed through in a quick, but scary looking mass of clouds that crossed over the Island like those alien spaceships in the film Independence Day, right at sundown. In an instant, a dry Northwest wind followed that ushered in Tru September (TM). It appears that the era of Floridian September is ending, and this morning we are treated to something more reminiscent of Autumn. We have some clouds, but they will slowly be giving way to pure sun and cooler Autumn air over the next few days. The waves are the nicest they’ve been during this heavy swell period so get out and treat yourself. The big blowoff that was supposed to occur in the next 48 hours is slowly dying with a max of 4 footers (down from 9!) forecast tomorrow during so-so winds. So don’t save your energy. Get out there when it is good.
