With a primarily south and southwest synoptic (large scale) wind, we experience what the Canadians call “doming,” also known as “decoupling.” Doming is when warm winds don’t want to mix to the surface over cool waters.» —“SailFlow Predicts Southerly For Larchmont NOOD” by Matt Corey Sailing World (Palm Coast, Florida) Sept. 5, 2007.
