Discussion
Echoes on kbyx doppler radar have waxed and waned over the past
few hours, favoring the gulf waters north of the lower keys and
the atlantic waters well offshore from the upper keys. But these
have been isolated at best over the past hour or so, with only a
few lightning pockets. Otherwise, under partly cloudy skies with a
gentle to moderate east southeasterly breeze, temperatures along
the island chain are in the middle 80s.

The evening local sounding shows a lighter east to southeasterly
flow extending into the mid layers when compared to 24 hours ago.

Moisture has ticked up by a few tenths of an inch during that time
and there is less convective low level resistance. Although the
present echoes on radar are not impressive strength-wise or with
areal coverage, we expect at least a noticeable uptick through the
overnight period. The zone forecast issuance from the afternoon
has the expected conditions covered and there is no reason to
update it late this evening.

Marine
Expect gentle to briefly moderate east to southeast breezes across
all waters surrounding the florida keys overnight. Showers should
become scattered through the bulk of the waters, accompanied by at
least a few thunderstorms. The upcoming coastal water forecast
update will have only minor adjustments to the wind speed in a
couple of the marine groupings, trimmed by only a couple of knots
based on the latest observations. Certainly nothing large.

Aviation
Overnight,VFR conditions will prevail at both the keyw and kmth
island terminals. Surface winds will average between 6 and 10
knots from 100-120 degrees. Any MVFR ifr CIGS and or vis will be
very brief.

It is not checked for accuracy either by anyone at L-36.com or by the source which is typically the US Government. See the NOAA web site for their disclaimer. Finally, tide and current data on this site is from 2007 and 2008 data bases, which may contain even older data. Changes in harbors due to building or dredging change tides and currents and for that reason many of the locations presented are no longer supported by newer data bases. For example, there is very little tidal current data in newer data bases so current data is likely wrong to some extent. This data is NOT FOR NAVIGATION. See the XTide disclaimer for details. In addition, tide and current are influenced by storms, river flow, and other factors beyond the ability of any predictive program.
