1003 am edt Wed jun 19 2019

Discussion
The morning sounding at key west remained moisture-rich with lapse
rates slightly steeper than 24 hours ago, in spite of 500 mb
heights remaining steady near 593 dm. Morning goes-16 estimates
of total column moisture were down to 1.7 inches across the
straits. Meanwhile, a weak southerly flow from 4k feet down to the
surface continues.

Numerical guidance holds onto the idea that some of the drier air
works in from the southwest beginning 18z, and with warm ridging
aloft likely to reduce mixed layer potential buoyancy. Even
mesoscale guidance confirms the risk of deep convection over the
keys diminishes significantly by noon with scattered convection
over cuba not likely to propagate far northward during the today
period.

Therefore, today's late morning public forecast update is most
likely a reduction of rain chance and removal of thunder for the
afternoon.

Marine
No watches, warnings or advisories are in effect for the coastal
waters of the florida keys. The dominant weather feature is the
subtropical high pressure ridge across south florida and the keys,
which will continue light to gentle east to southeast breezes
through Friday, and a brief, slight surge up to near 15 knots
possible Friday night offshore the reef.

Aviation
Vfr conditions will prevail at both the key west and marathon
terminals through this afternoon and evening. Near surface winds
will out of the southeast between 5 and 10 knots.

Climate
On this date in 1919, the daily record low temperature of 71 degrees
was recorded in key west. Temperature records date back to 1872.

Key watches warnings advisories

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.
