Marine
Issued at 430pm EST Thu Dec 1 2022 Small Craft Advisories are in effect for all the coastal waters surrounding the Florida Keys. Fresh to strong breezes are expected through Saturday and Saturday night as strong surface high pressure treks eastward across the eastern United States and then out into the western North Atlantic. The most likely marine areas for the strong breezes are the Straits of Florida, portions of the Hawk Channel, and the deep Gulf. Peak timing for the strong breezes will be Friday through early Saturday. Thereafter, breezes will gradually slacken into Tuesday as high pressure continues to weaken and moves east out across the western North Atlantic.

Climate
On this day in 1876, December began with the passage of a powerful cold front, which caused temperatures in Key West to plunge down to a low of 45F on the 1st of the month, breaking the daily cold record. The ensuing cold snap was incredible in its duration and magnitude, as to this day the cold high and low temperature records set on each of the five subsequent days (the 2nd-6th) have never been tied nor surpassed, and the low temperature of 44F on the 2nd remains tied for the lowest temperature ever recorded in Key West in the month of December.
