Discussion
Light east breezes continue this evening as a ridge remains to the
north. A pocket of drier mid level air noted on goes-16
precipitable water estimates had not yet reached key west per the
moist evening sounding near 1.95 inches... A bit behind schedule as
earlier progged by guidance. Isolated showers were detected in
gulf waters west of the everglades, and a cluster of thunderstorms
well offshore in the lee of andros island.

It's a complicated mesoscale picture overnight regarding whether
rain chances are reduced for the overnight... Or just the early
portion. Deeper moisture exists across the far upper keys, and
indeed some isolated to scattered showers are possible during the
early morning hours as resultant boundaries drift westward into
the coastal waters. Will monitor trends over the next hour or so,
but any near-term resurgence of showers near the upper keys will
eliminate any need for a public forecast update.

Marine
Light east to southeast winds can be expected the next couples
days as a ridge remains to the north. Some slight increase is
expected the middle of this week as the ridge builds further into
the southeast u.S., and eventually where cautions for small craft
may become necessary next weekend.

Aviation
Vfr conditions will prevail through the period with east winds
generally less than 10 knots and mostly clear skies with few to sct cu
around 2500 ft. Some indication there could be a few isolated showers
around in the morning, mainly near mth, but probability of a shower
affecting the terminal is too low to include a mention at this time.

Climate
For september 23rd, the daily record high temperature of 92 degrees
was last recorded in 1990. While the daily record rainfall of 2.10"
was recorded for this date back in 1931. Temperature records at key
west date back to 1872, and precipitation records 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.
