Bubba hereby admits to a strange,vivid and at times overbearing fascination with said Gulfstream.That stated,however,Bubba points out that said waters surrounding the Dry Tortuga's and at same Latitude as venerable Key West but in the Midst of said Gulfstream register 84F. as compared and contrasted to Key West at 71F.Correspondingly,Bubba use this example to point out effect of said Gulfstream to argue microclimate,microclimate.Bubba say warm water nearby make things warmer.Gulfstream,Gulfstream,Gulfstream!

When ONE starts  talking about ONESELF  in the THIRD person,it is time to step away from the computer for at least a short amount of time!  It probably means ONE is overheating being to NEAR the  hot ,torrid, GULF STREAM! That or your computer is radiating GAMMA rays!:laugh:

Bubba-

Whwre are you getting the Dry Tortugas reading?  I periodically check that buoy and its been out of commission since 2005.  The replacement station is Pulaski Shoal Light, PLSF1.

Heres another one I can never figure out----

Why is the water temperature in the middle of the Gulf of Mexico so much warmer than nearer the coast?  The warmest water temp reading (79F) of all the marine buoys I can find in or near FL is 262 miles south of Panama City (East Gulf of Mexico Buoy).

Larry,My information comes from Weather Underground under Key West Surf.I also have trouble understanding the Buoy system in South Florida.I have read studies showing that the Eastern edge of the Florida Current is substantially warmer than the Western edge.Buoy's in the Current seem problematic because of the fast moving water and tendency for heavy seas.I am trying with rather limited success to get more information on the Florida Current,particularly near Palm Beach,and would appreciate any help.

OK...this might explain things.

The "surf" temps are probably not comparable to the buoy temps. The buoys measure actual water temp at a certain depth, while I believe the "surf" temps are the temps in the very shallow waters (probably literally where it meets the sand)?

Heres a decent (albeit generalized) chart of FL water temps as of today.

One can see rather clearly on this map that the water is warmer on the east coast compared to the west coast at the same lattitude as the gradient lines are at about 45 degree angles.

Many times the Buoy readings I see are air temperature. I do not understand "the Buoy System".

Thats because some read both water and air temperature.  Some also seem to only report air temperature sometimes.

But, the water temperature is clearly labelled as such when its reported.

Larry,Did some more research on the Gulfstream and Buoys.The Lake Worth Buoy is located on the Lake Worth Pier,which is not in the Gulfstream or Florida Current.Found out that the average Temperature in the Gulfstream for approximate timeframe of Jan.1-10,2008 was 83F.Our water temperature during this timeframe was 73-75F.Coldest air temperature was 40+F.on Jan 4,2008.

At the moment as we enter winter we have 24C (75F)water temps off of the coast. It's still 28C (84F) down to the 26th parralel. This is much warmer than normal. Winter may get rather weird this year. :wacko::blink::unsure:

Well I'm at 32S and 75F is real warm then.

Supposedly we are meant to have a drier and warmer winter than normal, according to yesterdays long range forecast. I would imagine that the Leeuwin current which travels from the Indonesian islands to South Australia would be really strong this year. The warmer ocean temps can be a two edged sword though. When cold fronts come up from the Antarctic, the extra warm water produces more rain per front, due to the temp difference between ocean and the cold air mass. However when a high pressure zone comes over us, coastal areas will stay warmer at night than normal due to higher ocean temps, whereas inland will remain largely unchanged. I'd imagine day temps would be slightly higher than average in coastal areas too.

So, I'll come back in three months and tell you if my predictions are right. :unsure:

Best regards

It's after midnight, one day out from winter and it's 20C(68F) outside. I can't recall it ever being so warm this close to winter ever before. The coconut is going to love it. It's still growing for me at about 10mm of spear growth a night.

Well, we had a minimum of 19C in the end, which happens to be today's forecast maximum. I've never known it to be this warm so close to winter. This winter may end up being a warm one, or totally chaotic and unpredictable.

Bubba-

As far as I can tell (Ive only been watching the ocean temps with regularity for a few years) its normal to be in the lower 90's in summer. Of course, the temperature fluctuates but it seems to stay +/- 5F of 90F this time of year.

At this very instant (aitn the internet and real time readings cool?) 90.3F off the coast in Tarpon Springs, which is only 1F cooler than the air at my house (1.5 miles inland).

The ocean temps off the coast are still above average at 20, 21C. Further out they are below average. We have had above average rainfall for the year so far. Our dam levels have not been so high this time in the year, for many years. The watertable has had a lot of water pumped into it. The lakes are full and the drainage basins that normally fill up after heavy rain and dissipate quickly are staying full so far.

aloha from the Hawaiian Islands. The ocean does not get real warm here, today 81f. At many beaches there is underground fresh water entering the ocean and the water comes from high in the mountains where it rains often. Very chilly spots when swimming. In the winter I have seen the ocean as cold as 76f. Don Sanders

The ocean temp is 55F (13C), the air temp in my garden is 55F (13C) at a distance of 1 mile (1.6km) inland from the beach. The sky is completely overcast with fog so dense and dark that there are no shadows. July and August feature the worst weather here, no direct sunshine for days or weeks at a time; I refer to this as "deep summer" ! Pity the poor tourists in their sleeveless tops and shorts. :lol:

Darold, What are your average air temps, max ,min, for summer/winter? Just wondering.
