FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR THE FLORIDA KEYS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE KEY WEST FL
507 AM EDT FRI AUG 29 2014

.DISCUSSION...DEEP RIDGING IS TAKING OVER THE FORECAST THROUGH THE
WEEKEND AND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK. ANALYSIS OF THE FAR WESTERN EDGE OF
THE SAHARAN AIR LAYER SUGGESTS THAT A SAL EPISODE IS TRAVELING ACROSS
THE BAHAMAS AND HEADING TOWARD SOUTH FLORIDA AND THE KEYS. MIMIC
DERIVED TOTAL PRECIPITABLE WATERS IS ALSO SHOWING A SIGNIFICANT DRY
SWATH OVER THE SAME AREA. WITH THIS IN MIND AND THE CURRENT GUIDANCE
BEING VERY STINGY WITH RESPECT TO MOISTURE AND THE RIDGE...EXPECT TO
KEEP SLIGHT CHANCE POPS THROUGH SUNDAY NIGHT. WINDS WILL INCREASE
OVER THE WEEKEND DUE TO THE RIDGE BUILDING TO OUR NORTH. WILL GO WITH
A MORE SEASONAL LOW END CHANCE AS LOW LEVEL MOISTURE INCREASES AND A
WEAK WESTWARD PROPAGATING TROPICAL WAVE PASSES SOUTH OF CUBA MONDAY.
