It’s 75°F and partly cloudy right now at Parrot Key, but the sun looks like it is burning off the clouds and more blue sky is visible by the hour. The forecast looks like we finally are getting out from under the rain for at least a week, the weather is predicted to be sun and mid 70’s temperature until late next week. Sunset tonight is at 6:49 pm, and with the low laying clouds predicted for late this afternoon, should be spectacular.
The annual Meeting of the Minds Parrothead gathering is about to once again come to Key West. Several thousand rabid Jimmy Buffet fans will arrive for four days of drinking, eating and live music.
