Discussion
There are a few widely spaced light showers pushing westward
acrossthe keys service area early this morning. Otherwise, it is
partly cloudy with a gentle to moderate easterly breeze in place.

Temperatures along the island chain are in the lower to mid 70s.

A relatively deep cyclone will be progressing northeastward
through the great lakes region today through early Monday,
followed by a another through the ohio valley through early
Tuesday. Broad high surface pressure will extend from the western
atlantic across northern florida, but weakening today and Monday.

The center of this high re-positions east of the florida peninsula
through the middle of the week, then is reinforced from the north
through the end of the work week. Aside from easterly breezes
steadily moderating through early Monday, the local profile does
not change significantly over the next 4 to 5 days. The only minor
change made to the gridded elements was to linger the small
probability of light rains early today... That based entirely on
the latest loop of the kbyx doppler radar. We are expecting these
to diminish and rain out by mid morning or so.

By the end of the week, a front stalls across the southeast, but
the local profile veers above a more southerly trajectory. A small
chance for light showers will be maintained from Friday into the
upcoming weekend. Temperatures will be slightly above the seasonal
average through the middle of the week, and a few degrees higher
later this week thanks to the lower level southerlies.

Marine
The moderating winds will allow for the cancellation of the small
craft advisory over the straits. Small craft will need to exercise
caution there over the next couple of periods though. Relatively
pleasant recreational boating is expected through the middle of
the work week with the continuation of gentle to moderate mainly
easterly breezes.

Aviation
Vfr conditions will prevail today at the eyw and mth terminals with
easterly winds of 5 to 10 knots.

Climate
On this date in 1958, 1.45 inches of rain was measured in key
west. This set the daily rainfall record for march 26th in the
city. 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.
