Looking at the weather pattern for NOOD St. Pete 2007, we appear to be in a much better position for winds. The progressive frontal pattern has returned, and long range models indicate a secondary front on Sunday, which may offer quite the contrast in winds to last year's drifter. Unseasonably cold and gusty, this cool air will tend to keep the winds from first the northwest then gradually shifting to the north-northeast as they slacken off. If we see the synoptic winds slacken enough, we may begin to see slight undercuts of southerlies. But timing of the fronts looks to keep the chilly northerlies lingering.
