Um, we learned this in grade school, maybe I am old and they just do not teach this anymore.
The TROPIC of CANCER delineates the Northernmost latitude where the trade winds go to.
The trade winds are a Product of the so-called Bermuda High which is stationed between the US and Europe ( as evidenced in the dark blue circle in Billies great wind map site ). Never been to Cuba, I missed out being born there by 3 years, but I know our weather in FL well after kiting here 17 years. And yes, It is obvious any front making it down to FL will impact your weather.
As a side note, The jet stream almost always stays at the Canadian border, If it dips , and it can dip towards either AZ TX FL or NC, and if it makes it there , are all totally different weather patterns for us.
If it dips AZ TX = no wind for FL. If it dips FL = NW N or maybe NE wind for FL. If it dips NC then
a good chance of NE wind as long as high pressure stays far enough north and doesn't sit on top of us.
I still think that those weak NE winds in Florida are Trade Winds just weak.
No, when we do get NE winds they are NOT
weak. We only get them from Nov to May after a frontal passage.
Come on over and try our Summer time trade winds, even in the keys.............
I am sure you won't be overly excited about them once you have experienced
South Florida's summer time trade winds..........
Sticking with the Gorge or PR for my summers, thanks
Feliz Navidad y Ano Nuevo!
