Marine Weather and Tides
Duck Key, FL

Version 3.4
What's New / NOTES
5/20/2018 -- NOAA is having problems with the data feed that I use to draw the graphs. They are aware of the issue and working to resolve it. Sometimes changing the location by about a mile will give a correct graph. 3/3/2018 - There is a new GOES Satellite for the east coast that required rewriting that part of the code. Please report any issues.

Discussion
There have only been a few widely separated small echoes on kbyx
doppler radar this evening within the keys service area.

Currently, there are no precipitation echoes within the area.

Under partly cloudy skies with a light breeze in place,
temperatures along the island chain are in the middle 80s.

The evening local sounding shows a light and variable wind profile
extending to well above the mid levels. Moisture has diminished
even further over the past 24 hours and there is a shallow
convectively resistant layer aloft. There is even drier air
upstream from the forecast area as well. With limited low level
boundaries again this evening, we expect another overnight period
with only a slight chance of showers and thunderstorms. The
afternoon zone forecast has the expected sensible weather elements
advertised well through the short term. No update is planned this
evening.

Marine
There will be little if any change on the late evening coastal
waters update. Expect light breezes in all coastal waters
surrounding the florida keys overnight and through the bulk of the
forecast.

Aviation
Overnight, expectVFR conditions at both eyw and mth terminals.

Surface winds will be from 140 degrees AOA 6kt.

Key watches warnings advisories

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.
