Abstract : A 14 July 1961 TIROS photograph of the Florida Peninsula suggests that by early afternoon thunderstorm activity was concentrated along all coasts. There were indications that this peculiar distribution was related to the formation of convergence or activity lines along the coasts caused by surface heating over the interior and the development of weak sea breeze circulations along all coasts. This picture also shows the stabilizing influence of the larger lakes over the Peninsula, for example, Lake Okeechobee. (Author)
