NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE Key West FL
648 AM EDT Thu Mar 23 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Mostly sunny and rain-free conditions with light winds will
prevail for most of the day. However, a fast-moving wind and
moisture surge will sweep through the Florida Keys from northeast
to southwest, beginning in the upper Florida Keys late this
afternoon, and ending in the lower Florida Keys this evening.
Scattered rain showers and a few thunderstorms with a lightning
risk are expected tonight, with diminishing shower coverage on
Friday. Strong east breezes, sustained 15 to 20 mph, with gusts
occasionally over 25 mph are likely from tonight through Friday
night, with slowly decreasing winds Saturday through Monday. The
best chance for any measurable rain will be tonight. Relative
humidity values will be about 10 to 15 percent higher today
through Friday than during recent days.
