Detailed Forecast


Synopsis: A weak ridge axis over South Florida will dissipate overnight. On Monday, a high center will move eastward along the northern Gulf Coast, causing moderate northerly breezes to develop. This high will strengthen over the Southeast United States Monday night and Tuesday, with freshening northeast to east breezes over the Keys waters. For the rest of the week, the high will settle slowly southward down the Florida Peninsula, allowing breezes to gradually relax. By Friday, only light to gentle easterly breezes are forecast.
