FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR THE FLORIDA KEYS...CORRECTED
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE KEY WEST FL
536 AM EDT SAT MAR 28 2015

CORRECTED TO REMOVE RAIN CHANCE TODAY

.DISCUSSION...NORTHWEST TO NORTH WINDS WILL FRESHEN DUE TO THE
GRADIENT AROUND AN AREA OF HIGH PRESSURE BUILDING IN ACROSS THE
EASTERN UNITED STATES. HIGHEST WINDS WILL EXTEND THROUGH THIS
EVENING...THEN LULL OVERNIGHT AND INTO SUNDAY. IN THE WAKE OF THE
COLD FRONT LAST NIGHT...SOME DRIER CONTINENTAL AIR WILL
ARRIVE...WITH LOWER DEW POINTS AND SOME RELIEF FROM THE HEAT AND
HUMIDITY OF THE PAST FEW DAYS TODAY THROUGH SUNDAY...BUT TEMPERATURES
ALTHOUGH COOLER...WILL MODIFY QUICKLY DUE TO THE WARM WATERS
SURROUNDING THE ISLAND CHAIN. THIS COMBINED WITH A RIDGE BUILDING
ACROSS THE EASTERN UNITED STATES...WILL TURN WINDS MORE NORTHEAST
THEN EAST...INCREASING MOISTURE AND CUTTING OFF ANY COOLER AIR
ADVECTING SOUTHWARD.
