Discussion
Kbyx doppler radar shows a few patches of very light echoes,
oriented in thin elongated lines ene wsw, pushing northwestward
from the nearshore atlantic waters toward the gulf waters adjacent
to the keys island chain. Otherwise, skies are partly cloudy with
temperatures in the upper 80s, and dewpoints between 75 and 80
along the island chain.

The early morning local sounding indicates a deepening easterly
breezes. However, there is persistent mid to upper level ridging,
and total precipitable water has diminished by about a quarter of
an inch in the last 24 hours. A few showers are not out of the
question through the afternoon, but it appears they should remain
relatively weak and transient. One might argue for a reduction in
pop based on the resident parameters, but since we are advertising
a slight chance of measurable rain, no zone update is planned for
this afternoon.

Marine
Winds continue to moderate from the east southeast. No advisories
or cautionary headlines are expected for small craft in any of the
coastal waters surrounding the florida keys over the next few
periods. Only very minor directional changes will be made to the
initial winds on the upcoming coastal waters update.

Aviation
Expect east to southeast winds less than 10 knots with potential for
cloud lines but these will be challenged due to high pressure aloft.

With this in mind, expectingVFR conditions to prevail at both the
key west and marathon international terminals through 30 12z.

Climate
On this date in keys weather history, may 29th, 1960, 2.04 inches of
rain fell at the key west airport. This set the daily record for
rainfall in key west which stands after 57 years. Rainfall records
for key west date back to 1871.

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.
