Area Forecast Discussion
National Weather Service Key West FL
1021 PM EST Fri Jan 20 2017

.DISCUSSION...
Currently - A high cell centered over the central Bahamas is
pushing light east to southeast breezes across the Florida Keys.
This warm flow and warm nearshore water temperatures is keeping
may areas in the lower 70s. However, some locations have already
radiated into the upper 60s. Stable conditions and the weak flow
is preventing shower development and skies are mostly clear.

Short Term Update - The high pressure cell off to our east will
maintain light mostly southeast breezes across the area. Outside
of areas experiencing radiative cooling into the mid to upper
60s, night time temperatures will be near or slightly above 70.
Rain chances will remain out of the forecast.

&&

.MARINE...
High pressure to our east will keep light southeast breezes across
Florida Keys waters through the overnight period. Will only nudge
downwards bay and gulf side winds in the evening marine update.

&&

.AVIATION...
VFR conditions will continue for EYW and MTH tonight and Saturday.
Winds will be light overnight from the south-southeast, turning from
the south in the morning.
