Discussion
Temperatures are near 70 degrees this morning along the island
chain, with dew points comfortably near 60 degrees. Winds have
dropped off over the past several hours to near 5 knots from the
north to northeast. A few patches of scattered low-level cumulus
clouds were evident on goes-east imagery, with no precipitation
detected by local radars.

Concerning the short term forecast, generally mild and dry weather
is expected through Thursday. Temperatures will be near normal as
a modified continental air mass remains in place. As a result dew
points will remain in the lower to mid 60s. By Thursday winds will
become southeast, rapidly ushering in low-level moisture that will
increase dew points to near 70 degrees.

Sensible weather conditions will change considerably to end the
work week, as an approaching shortwave trough acts to enhance
lift across the region. This will lead to partly cloudy skies and
chance pops again as we head into the weekend. It will remain
quite warm despite the clouds and rain, as the aforementioned
shortwave stalls over the area with no significant thermal
gradients to speak of.

Marine
No watches, warnings, or advisories are currently in effect for
the coastal waters of the florida keys. Freshening easterly
breezes are expected to bring scec conditions to the straits of
florida and hawk channel tonight, but winds should remain just
below small craft advisory criteria. Otherwise no significant
marine impacts are expected, with gentle to moderate breezes
forecast to prevail.

Aviation
Until 00z 23rd,VFR conditions are expected at the key west and
marthon terminals with any cloud bases near 035-040. North to
northeast winds of around 5 knots will turn east and increase to
near 10 knots with occasional gusts near 15 knots.

Climate
On this date in 1940, the daily record low temperature of 62
degrees was recorded in key west. Temperature records date back
to 1872.

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.
