Discussion
Currently
Skies are partly cloudy with east winds of 10 to 15 mph which are
keeping temperatures in the lower to mid 70 along the island
chain. Meanwhile, local radars are only detecting a few showers on
the florida straits, beyond 40 nm southeast of the extreme upper
keys. Surface wise, a two prong western atlantic ridge axis
extends across the southeast united states and the northern half
of the sunshine state. On our marine district, winds are mostly
east ranging from 12 knots at long key light to 18 knots at sand
key light.

Short term (rest of tonight)
given considerable dry air combined with a decelerating low level
flow, only isolated dime pops will be retained. Under partly
cloudy skies and a light to gentle east wind, low temperatures
will should hold in the lower 70s along most keys communities.

Marine
A small craft advisory will be extended for the florida straits
and an exercise caution headline will be maintained for hawk
channel until winds decrease toward morning. Elsewhere, east winds
near 15 knots will decrease north of the island chain.

These are not intended to be fact, they are my opinions. 4) Small programs that generate result presented on a web page. Like any computer program, these may and in some cases do have errors. 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.
