Breezy does it! I am loving the weather here. Like I said in another thread, if I was back in the Tampa Bay area, I'm sure I'd have the AC on by now. Seems like it's only four months of miserable heat here as opposed to six months. What a difference a hundred miles makes!

Yes, it has been great weather so far this year. The breezes have been most welcome, but it is the lower humidity that makes it glorious. My house has been opened up all week. I do hope we get some of that rain. I prepped the yard, laid down a bit of Milorganite, and my plants are beginning to recover from the harsh freezes this past winter.

Absolutely, the lower humidity, which is fantastic. Is this normal for the area at this time of year, or unusual? I understand the government is cutting back on its weather modification programs. Hoping for a bit of that rain myself, but the pattern seems a little tricky.

It took me years to accept that forecasting Central Florida weather was a crapshoot. As someone who used to depend on accurate and precise information, it drove me bonkers. Those colliding sea breezes make a mockery of predictions.

LOL, so true, I got a good lesson on that a few days ago, when it looked as if we were going to get hammered and then it fizzled out.

Come to think of it, that sea breeze collision would explain the violence of the thunderstorms.

Yes, how does this happen? I was watching a Youtube channel out of the Tampa Bay area, and they were complaining of the heat a couple of days ago. Such a relief to be out of there. It's like heaven here weather-wise, but shhhh! Don't tell anyone.

It's 9 degrees hotter in Miami right now, probably because Miami is closer to hell.

Even Miami is cooler in the summer than the Tampa Bay area, believe it or not. The Gulf concentrates the heat in its water and then the "breeze" blows onto the area like a moist blast from a hair dryer. The bay is even worse. Yuck.
