Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Key West FL
1023 PM EST Sun Dec 17 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Under partly cloudy skies with a gentle to occasionally moderate
easterly breeze, temperatures along the Keys island chain range
from 70 to 75 degrees. There are no precipitation echoes on the
KEYS Doppler radar.

The evening local sounding shows the persistently veered lower
profile has moderated the local airmass, pushing moisture values a
bit higher and temperatures several degrees warmer than at this
time yesterday evening. The probability of measurable
precipitation remains too low to mention, and winds have fallen
off just a bit since earlier this afternoon. A recently updated
zone forecast accounted for this small wind decrease. No other
sensible weather elements were changed.

&&

.MARINE...
The upcoming coastal waters forecast will have basically no
changes from the afternoon issuance. Winds will continue to mix
more noticeably over the Straits than across the islands and the
cooler Gulf and Bay waters.

&&

.AVIATION...
Expect VFR conditions with gentle to occasionally moderate
easterly breezes overnight into early Monday afternoon at the KEYW
and KMTH terminals.

&&

.KEY WATCHES/WARNINGS/ADVISORIES...
FL...None.
GM...None.
