National Weather Service Key West Florida
1021 PM EST Monday Nov 30 2015

currently - a weak ridge extends across the southeastern United
States...into the Gulf of Mexico...producing gentle to moderate
northeast to east breezes across the Keys and surrounding waters. The
weaker flow along with ample dry air aloft is limiting shower
activity to just a few...mainly over our eastern zones...and the
outer Florida Straits. The more veered flow has brought dew points
into the low to middle 70s...with temperatures in the middle 70s.

Short term update (overnight) - gentle northeast to east flow will
continue. The weaker...but still steady flow and the small dew point
depression will keep temperatures from moving much further over the
remainder of the night. Rain chances will remain slight. No update


gentle to moderate northeast to east flow will prevail on Keys waters
through the overnight period due to a weak ridge across the
southeastern United States. No cautions or advisories are in effect.


VFR conditions will continue at the Key West and Marathon terminals
overnight and on Tuesday. Northeast winds up to around 8 knots will
prevail during the night...increasing to around 10 knots on Tuesday.
