FIRE WEATHER PLANNING FORECAST FOR THE FLORIDA KEYS
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE KEY WEST FL
556 AM EDT WED OCT 1 2014

.DISCUSSION...A DEEP LAYER RIDGE WILL REMAIN NEAR THE REGION THROUGH
THURSDAY WHILE A SHARP LATITUDINAL TROUGH DIGS ACROSS THE FRONT
RANGE THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT. THE PRESSURE PATTERN WILL CONTINUE TO
PRODUCE WEAK WINDS ACROSS THE KEYS AREA AS THE TROUGH MOVES
SOUTHEASTWARD. MODEL SOUNDINGS WOULD SUGGEST WEAK FORCING THROUGH
THURSDAY NIGHT BUT WILL KEEP CHANCE OF SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS IN
THE FORECAST THROUGH THURSDAY NIGHT DUE TO POTENTIAL FOR ISLAND CLOUD
LINES AND MIGRATING BOUNDARIES FROM THE FLORIDA MAINLAND AND CUBA
MERGING DURING THE DIURNAL PERIODS.
