454 am edt Fri mar 24 2017

Discussion
Showers and thunderstorms were mainly over the waters south of the
florida keys overnight and earlier this morning. Some of these
showers produced wind gusts of 25 to 30 knots. Temperatures were
able to drop to the low 70s degrees with dew points in the mid
60s. Outside the storms, winds were increasing over the area,
ranging 10 to 15 knots with gusts to 20 knots and near 20 knots
over the waters.

Forecast
Some of the island communities of the keys experienced showers
and thunderstorms last night. This was thanks to a front that
moved south from south florida. A mid-level trough will still be
moving away from the peninsula this afternoon, which will aid in
the development of additional showers later this morning and early
afternoon. By tonight, a high pressure will extend into the local
area, allowing for the improvement of the weather conditions. The
pressure gradient will then start to loose it up on Saturday
morning and advisory headlines may not be neccesary for the
second half of the weekend. As this high pressure and its western
ridge settles into our area, winds will weaken and weather
conditions will return to mostly clear to partly cloudy skies,
temperatures near 80 during the day and lower 70s at night.

Marine
Winds from the east have been ranging near 20 knots with higher
gusts at the available marine stations along the florida keys
coastal waters this morning. Based on the latest model guidance,
winds will increase a few knots today and remain fresh to strong
today and slowly decrease on Saturday.

Aviation
Scattered showers may bring brief MVFR conditions to the keyw and
kmth terminals this morning. That probability has been tempoed at
both locations early this morning, and may need to be extended to
or slightly beyond 10z. Otherwise, expectVFR conditions at the
island terminals through late this evening. Winds will become more
uniformly from the east, sustained close to 15 knots by early
afternoon with frequent gusts AOA 20 knots.

Climate
On this date in 1983, 1.18 inches of rain was measured in key west.

This set the daily rainfall record for march 24th in the city.

Rainfall records for 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.
