.DISCUSSION...
Currently - High pressure over the southeastern United States and
the Gulf of Mexico is maintaining moderate north to northeast
breezes across the Florida Keys. Skies have become mostly cloudy
due to lower level moisture left over from the dying lower level
front. Temperatures are near 70 degrees with dew points climbing
to near 60 degrees.

Short Term Update - Winds will remain light to gentle out of the
north to northeast through the overnight period as the high will
shift only slightly eastward. Stable conditions will continue and
no showers are expected. Skies will remain mostly cloudy due to
the lower level moisture and a weak but veering profile through
the lower levels. Expect overnight lows to drift down a few
degrees. Nearshore water temperatures have only cooled down into
the mid 70s.

&&

.MARINE...
Moderate north to northeast breezes will prevail on Keys waters
through the overnight period. There is a subtle drainage flow
setting up over the Florida Bay and cautions are in effect there,
as well as for Hawk Channel and the Florida Bay.

&&

.AVIATION...
VFR conditions will prevail. Decks of stratus and stratocumulus
based between 3000 and 4000 ft will keep skies mostly cloudy to
overcast at the island terminals. Winds will be North to northeast
at around 10 knots at the island terminals.
