The Sea Breeze Front is back

Posted: Updated:

Summer began on the 21st of June and that marked the beginning of an almost daily occurrence...the Sea Breeze Front.  It is a cooler air mass from the Gulf of Mexico that invades the south when temperatures along the coast become warmer than the adjacent sea air.  Thus, this air mass led by a cold front, moves inland wedging under the normally hot and humid atmosphere causing thunderstorms.  The gust fronts from the cool downpours of the storms help spread the Sea Breeze Front farther inland until about sundown.  Then, the ambient cools to the same temperature as the front halting it's inland advance.  Thus, the boundary dissipates and then the whole process begins again the following day.

It's direction of movement depends on the environmental winds.  Today, we had a light south to southeast breeze which moved the front well inland to Texas and Louisiana.  Southwest winds usually take the boundary more into Mississippi, Alabama and Florida.
