in Deepwater Horizon oil spill, Destin Florida Beaches, Real Estate News

There are still no impacts to our beaches and shores.

This is the weather summary from the deep water horizon update, as of 5/18/2010

Weather Summary:

  • According to the NOAA oil plume model, the oil spill is 85 miles southwest of Pensacola, 135 miles from Port St. Joe, 185 miles from St. Petersburg, and 20 miles from the Loop Current.
  • The oil spill is currently 85 miles from Florida and very near the loop current. Oil impact is not expected across the Florida coastline within the next 72 hours. A weak cold front will slowly approach the northern-central gulf today and produce light westerly winds and 1-2 foot seas, which will provide favorable conditions for deepwater operations despite the possibility of a few passing showers across the region today. As the cold front crosses the region on Wednesday and lifts north on Thursday, winds will shift to the southeast, and pick up to 5-10 knots which will persist through the weekend. Seas of 1-3 feet are expected through Thursday and will increase to 2-4 feet on Friday and Saturday.
