After ten days of almost nonstop gloomy weather the forecast is looking carefully optimistic for the rest of the week, with partial sunny days on the schedule for this upcoming weekend. Winds should continue to die down through the week, going from 25mph today to a respectable 10mph or so on Sunday. The likelihood of rain won’t disappear completely, but the precipitation chance does seem to be on its way down, with today’s 60% chance of rain falling to a 10% chance by Saturday. That means patches of sun and blue sky should become more frequent, so get ready to dash over to the beaches at the first sign of sun! And when in doubt, duck into one of Key West’s fabulous museums or indoor gardens for a bit of a rain break. We love the Butterfly Conservatory, Casa Antigua, the Little Truman White House and even the occasional midday screening at the Tropic Cinema. Have fun out there!
This weekend’s weather report is looking to be a continuation of much of the same forecast we’ve had throughout the week, with temperatures creeping slowly upwards and the chance of rain hovering between 10% and 30%. Today looks like the perfect beach day, with sunny skies and partial clouds scheduled for the rest of the day. Scattered thunderstorms move in over the weekend, sure to add some necessary relief to the scorching temperatures.
The UV index for the next four days is rated an extreme 11, so please be cautious and remember to wear & reapply sunscreen religiously. Let’s make sure that the only lobster sighted on your vacation is a dinner entree, and not someone’s loved one!
Enjoy the beautiful weather…
It’s that time of year in Key West, when weather reports begin to forecast hot, sunny skies– with a chance of thunderstorms hovering at around 30% daily. Don’t fret! This doesn’t mean you need to start unpacking the board games and scheduling rainy day trips to the movies. Here in the tropics, it’s not unusual for there to be a 30% chance of rain each day. When they do occur, these brief thunderstorms are usually a quick, intense burst of rain that never interrupts the day for very long. In fact, they’re usually quite refreshing!
With humidity levels usually hovering around 70%, it can feel like you’re swimming down Duval Street…until a short break of rain swoops in to cool everything down. So when you see the weather report calling for scattered storms, don’t cancel your day at the beach– just bring a dry towel and relax, sit back and enjoy the show. It’ll be over in a minute or two, and that blazing sun will be back to dry you off in a jiffy. It’s the island way!
This week is shaping up to be hot and brutally humid, with temperatures expected to stay within the 80′s and the humidity forecasted at almost 80%! The perfect week to take a stroll down to the waterfront and hop onto one of the day boats heading out on the water, or to enjoy a classic cuban coffee– iced, of course! Your concierge friends at the front desk have a list of the perfect sunny day activities for you and your loved ones to enjoy. Just remember to load up on the sunblock and stay hydrated. For a day at the beach, nothing beats Fort Zachary Taylor, Key West’s favorite beach. With opportunities for picnicking, swimming, snorkeling, fishing, hiking and more, it’s a wonderful place to take advantage of these pristine, sweltering days!
We have been seeing unseasonable cold weather the last couple of days, with nighttime temperatures falling below 60°F two nights in a row, but starting today it should start to warm up again. It is currently 61°F at Parrot Key, but is expected to hit 70°F by midday. Tonight should be around 63°F and by tomorrow things should be back around 75°F.

There is a very light wind from the north right now and small chop out in the open ocean, but close to Key West the water is calm. Sunset tonight will be at 5:57 pm, and with the low pressure system coming in should provide amazing colors.
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.

It’s 84°F and sunny right now at Parrot Key, with a light wind from the south. The weather should be nice, reaching the 90′s in the next two days, before getting a little stormy this weekend.
