Ironman Florida forecast links

Right now, conditions for race day look great…here are a few links for easy reference over the next few days

…I’ll update them to more detail as it becomes available…still a few days out of course…so _could_ change as we get closer

Surf conditions on the right…high tide is 7:16am, so slack current just before and after…will build a bit though as the swim progresses.. wind can also create current

…a good way to check the actual current direction is to look down at the anchor line of a buoy as you go by it…the line in the direction from the buoy to the bottom anchor, points in the direction that the current is coming from :)
- now shows 0/flat conditions on Saturday morning :)

Weather:

48F first thing in the morning…73F high for the day…wind ENE 10MPH…the ‘wunderground’ forecast is a little cooler at 70F
- the forecast for temperature has come down a bit…the wind up a bit…still pretty perfect

    Thanks for all the good info. If I ‘swim’ tomorrow, it will just be to paddle out a little and make sure my goggles don’t leak and get a feel for the wetsuit, etc.. Probably a total of 15 minutes max. If I joined a swim with other folks I’d probably get en even worse feeling of how bad I am!

    All looks great!!

      Anne, hope that you had a great swim this morning…we were out with the group at 7am…this was as rough as it’s been this week, and I still found that I was moving forward so happy with that
      …and Saturday forecast to be a lot smoother…so all looks good
      …my last ‘training’ …next up Ironman :)
