Discussion
Currently
After an active afternoon along the lower keys, the environment
has been worked over a bit. The are a few showers pulsing over the
keys area at this hour, while moving west-southwest near 10 knots.

Skies are clearing out with mostly high clouds lingering over the
area. Winds are generally out of the east at 10 knots or less as
observed at the marine stations surrounding the keys island
chain, and near 5 knots at the island terminals.

Forecast
High pressure will remain nearby the area with ample moisture in
the column, and light steering flow. Cloud lines are likely to
develop, and the evening sounding data shows little inhibition.

The forecast soundings show favorable conditions through the short
term as well. No changes are expected in the short term.

Marine
No advisory or cautionary statements are expected through the end
of the week. The atlantic high pressure axis will extend across
the florida peninsula through the weekend.

Aviation
Throughout the remainder of the TAF period,VFR conditions are
expected to prevail at the key west and marathon international
terminals. Sub-vfr conditions could occur to a brief passing shower
or storm. Amendments will be issued as necessary.

Climate
On this date in keys weather history, 1919, the low dropped to 70
degrees setting the daily record minimum temperature in key west.

Temperature records for key west date back to 1872.

Almost all of these also make simplifying assumptions so they are not totally accurate even if there are no errors. Please verify all results. 5) Weather information is from numerious of sources and is presented automatically. 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.
