Sea Breeze Front

Science / Weather / Sea Breeze Front: A coastal phenomena, it is restricted to large bodies of water and their immediate coast lines. This is usually the landward extent of the sea breeze. Due to the imbalance of heating between land and water, a region of maximum upward motion or convergence occurs by mid-afternoon in the summer some 10 to 15 miles inland. Air mass thunderstorms or a line of towering cumulus clouds with showers can form along the front. At the beach, there are blue skies and a light breeze. This often occurs along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico and Florida's east coast.
