Fire Weather Planning Forecast FOR The Florida Keys
National Weather Service Key West FL
637 AM EDT Thu Aug 17 2017

.Discussion...timing should bring the center of an upper low
across the Keys by Friday around sunset. Rain chances will be
enhanced along the leading edge of the low, then as the center
of this low moves over the area Friday night and Saturday, expect
that the SAL embedded in the low will cross the Keys area, and
drying out the mid and upper levels. Guidance is much more bullish
than this forecaster, and for some reason fills in the low,
removing the dry air. Timing of the arrival and departure of this
low, and keeping the dry air embedded, have adjusted rain chances
downward Friday night and Saturday to a slight chance of showers
and thunderstorms.
