Fire Weather Planning Forecast FOR The Florida Keys
National Weather Service Key West FL
626 AM EDT Tue Oct 24 2017

.Discussion...The cold front sprawling across the east coast
states and Florida will progress slowly southeastward through
tonight. The main forecast problem is the timing of the arrival of
the cold front. For this reason has adopted a blend of the
guidance and anticipate the front to move through the area
Wednesday morning. Ahead of the front we expect a gradual shift in
winds from southeast to south this morning, becoming north and
increasing to near 15 mph after midnight. Winds will spread from
west to east across the Island Chain with the front passing the
Upper Keys between 8 am and 1 pm Wednesday.
