Fire Weather Planning Forecast FOR The Florida Keys
National Weather Service Key West FL
635 AM EDT Thu Mar 30 2017

.Discussion...As the low pressure over the Mississippi Valley
moves to the northeast today, expect the high pressure currently
off the east coast of Florida, to move further to the east, while
the pressure gradient builds on the western flank of this ridge.
This will result in increasing winds turning to the southeast this
morning and through the day. RH values will approach 50% today.
