Marine Weather and Tides
Cudjoe Key, FL

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Discussion
Currently
A few rounds of thunderstorms sparked along the western fl land
breeze and entered our offshore gulf waters this evening(adjacent
to mainland monroe). The first round weakened drastically, but
the second round was more robust and still lingers 10 miles south
of d tower. Otherwise, elevated precip echos were sampled along a
boundary in the southeastern gulf (produced by the surface trough
in the west- central gulf of mexico) and few showers are beginning
to appear in the outer straits. A weak pressure gradient exists
across the island chain as surface ridging continues off the
carolina coast, with the ridge axis extending through the florida
peninsula. Mimic imagery shows a wedge of low-level dry air
extending through cuba and the southeastern gulf, but also shows
high moisture increasing across S florida and the eastern bahamas
out of the east. The 00z sounding sampled this deepening moisture
pool, revealing a pwat just shy of 2 inches, which increased from
the 12z sounding and is near the 90th percentile for this time of
year.

Current temperatures linger in the low to mid 80s with dew points
near 75. Cman stations report winds out of the east near 10 knots
or less.

Short term
With the presence of showers and storms, along with the 00z
sounding sampling a moister environment, we feel the forecast
remains on track for scattered showers and isolated tstrms
tonight. Recent fcst soundings and model guidance does continue
to indicate the peak of shower activity to be Monday, and that is
also reflected in the afternoon forecast package. Therefore, no
updates are planned.

Marine
Gentle breezes, becoming light to gentle breezes after tomorrow
will prevail through the next several days across the coastal
waters surrounding the florida keys as a high pressure ridge
remains within the vicinity through the week. No watches,
warnings, or advisories are in effect or are anticipated.

Aviation
Vfr conditions will prevail at eyw and mth tonight into Monday
morning. MVFR or lower conditions are conceivable at eyw and mth
late Monday morning through Monday afternoon. This possibility is
not great enough to place in the terminal forecasts at this time.

Sustained east winds near 15 knots from just off the surface to
about 3,000 feet will decrease to near 10 knots after midnight.

Climate
On this date in florida keys weather history, in 1908, 1.85 inches
of rain fell in key west. This set the daily record for maximum
rainfall measured in key west on june 17th, a record which still
stands 110 years later. Rainfall records at key west date back to
1871.

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.
