Hi Gang,

If the model data is right it looks like we are transitioning into 7 days of a steadily enlarging eddy.

To put this in perspective... 20 years ago we saw an eddy once or twice a season.

The animation below shows some of the major surface players in creating this scenario over the next week.

I think I missed the whole eddy thing. What does it do to the wind?

Can locals from Pt. Isabel and from 3rd. Ave. And from the coast Tell. In polite language, him what the eddy does to the winds at these locations?

Or, spins off a great SW on the east side.

The Eddy formed off the bay area is caused by conflicting high-pressure areas to the NW and SE of the bay. When their resulting winds collide, they spin, but essentially the southerly winds from the SE cause the stronger NW winds to curve east into the bay versus to continue their NW trajectory.

NW winds favor the coast and peninsula sites, while NNW or W winds favor the central and east bay.
