Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Key West FL
838 PM EDT SAT MAY 28 2016

Skies are clear and so is the Key West radar with the exception of a
few stationary shower over the southern tip of Florida. Winds are
very light at this hour. The reason for the light winds and cloudless
skies is the weakness in the pressure pattern over South Florida and
the Keys area tonight. Dew point temperatures are around 70 degrees
which breaks down to 67 percent humidity.

With the 67 percent humidity, clear skies, and light and variable
winds overnight, we expect temperatures to fall a bit further into
the mid 70s overnight. Dry conditions will continue through the short
term with only slight chances of showers and thunderstorms. No
changes are expected or needed in the short term forecast.


No advisory or cautionary statements are expected through at least


VFR conditions will prevail at EYW and MTH tonight and Sunday.
Variable winds near 5 knots expected from just off the surface to
about 3000 feet.


On this date in Florida Keys weather history, in 1916, the low
temperature in Key West was 68 degrees. This set the daily record
for minimum temperature measured in Key West on May 28th, a record
which still stands 100 years later. Temperature records at Key West
date back to 1872.
