Thursday October 23rd Anna Maria Island 8:30am The dry front has passed and with it has brought in some cooler, fresher air. Absolutely flat on the beach, but the NE winds will be gusting for the next few days and the kiters will find plenty of ripe wind. Low pressure will persist down in the Carib, and hopefully later next week when the next front drops in, it will pull this ball of energy up into the Gulf. The chances are still there for further formation, but I'm going to pretend it doesn't exist. Have a great day. -- Tommy D. Gulf Temp 81°
