Discussion
Currently - atlantic high pressure extends a ridge across florida
into the gulf of mexico, resulting in gentle to moderate east
breezes across the keys and surrounding waters. Ample dry air
aloft is keeping shower activity at a minimum despite little in
the way of inhibition.

Forecast - the ridge to our north will shift slightly southwards
over the next couple of days. This will allow for a gradual
further relaxing of the pressure gradient. Basically zonal flow
aloft with weak undulations will have little significance to local
weather. Rain chances will remain slim to none through this
period with temperatures remaining near seasonal norms.

Beginning around mid week, the surface high to our north will
slide southeastwards. Meanwhile, guidance is pointing to a
shortwave trough moving through the rockies, resulting in pressure
falls in the plains. Winds will gradually veer southeast and surge
and lull in the gentle to moderate range. Rain chances will remain
slim to none as low to mid level dry air and ridging will remain
in the area. The south of east trajectory will bring in somewhat
warmer and humid air.

Marine
Gentle to moderate east breezes will trend downwards over the next
couple of days as a ridge axis to our north shifts southwards.

Winds will turn more southeast on Thursday as the ridge axis
shifts southeastwards and pressures fall over the plains and
western gulf of mexico. Winds will oscillate in the gentle to
moderate range Thursday through Friday. Cautions or advisories are
not anticipated.

Aviation
Tonight,VFR conditions will prevail today at both the eyw and mth
int'l island terminals with winds from 070-090 AOA 8-11 knots.

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.
