Discussion
The florida keys enjoyed a mostly sunny Friday as high clouds from
earlier moved out of our area by early afternoon. After another
chilly night and morning, temperatures went up to the mid 70s
across the islands this afternoon. Winds ranged from the north to
northeast at around 5 mph, while the marine stations ranged 5 to
10 knots.

Forecast
The the local area is forecast to remain mostly rain free most of
this weekend with the slight chance of a few showers over the
atlantic side waters. A high pressure will move east over the
southeast united states tonight and tomorrow, increasing the
pressure gradient over the florida peninsula. Consequently, winds
will increase tomorrow through Sunday. By Monday morning, the high
pressure will be over the western atlantic, stretching west but
continuing to move eastward. By Wednesday morning, the GFS has a
low pressure over south central us while the euro has a high
pressure over the same area. We will continue to track these
models during the next few days and adjust the forecast accordingly.

For today's forecast package, GFS was used for winds in the
extended forecast. Regardless, temperatures locally will remain a
few degrees above normal for this time of the year.

Marine
Winds will gradually increase tonight and tomorrow and possibly
reach advisory criteria Saturday night into Sunday night mainly
for the straits and caution advisory elsewhere. During this
period, winds will be from the northeast to east as a high
pressure to our north shifts east. After Monday night, gentle to
moderate breezes will return to the keys.

Aviation
Vfr conditions will continue tonight with light winds from the
north to northeast.

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.
