Florida’s Weather
Strong sea breeze storms happen often in Florida during
the summer. These storms frequently form over the
center of the peninsula.
A. Explain how a sea breeze forms.
\$100
Part A
During the day, the air over water is cooler
than the air over land. The hot air over the
land is pushed upward by the cool air over
the water as it moves inland. This causes a
sea breeze.
Scores

Florida’s Weather
Strong sea breeze storms happen often in Florida during
the summer. These storms frequently form over the
center of the peninsula.
B. Explain why you think these storms form over
the center of Florida.
\$200
Part B
Florida is surrounded by water on three
sides. Sea breezes can come in from the
east and from the west. When these
breezes meet, the air becomes very
unstable. If the air masses have a lot of
water vapor, a very strong sea breeze storm
could form over the center of the peninsula.
