Description

Sun rising over South Beach on Friday, 2/5/2015. You can see the cloud bank offshore caused by the land breeze. That happens because the chilly air (in the 50s) over the land at night is heavy so it spreads offshore. When it hits the warm Gulf Stream, it's lifted and forms clouds. As the air over the land warms up and the overall flow in the atmosphere switches today so the winds blow in from the northeast, (they are north this morning, but you can see the change in the direction of the cloud motion), those clouds will blow in. So, we're not expecting a sunny day after this morning.
