Abstract

A grid resolution model was used to study the physical processes associated with the sea breeze. The fifth generation PSU/NCAR non-hydrostatic mesoscale model (MM50 with multinested grids were used to simulate the surface winds and rainfall in South Florida. The model imitations were evaluated and validated using surface observations and NEXARD ground based radar rainfall estimates. The analysis results show a stronger sea breeze on the east coast of Florida as opposed to the west coast. The results indicate towards the key role played by sea breezes in rainfall in South Florida.
