Default Key Westers will need to keep an eye on Hurricane Ida

It looks like the outer bands of Hurricane Ida could affect Key West and this will need to be watched. The 5 day cone puts it into the Gulf a fair distance to the west of Key West but could still bring some crappy weather to the area. Atached is a link to NOAA National Hurricane Center.

I would not make any change of plans just yet but suggest that we monitor the strength and direction of this storm.

I cut the following out of the latest bulletin and if it holds true Key West should have little or no concerns. Like i said - please do not change your plans at this point. Let's just keep an eye on things. The next few days things will become more clear.

MAXIMUM SUSTAINED WINDS ARE NEAR 75 MPH...120 KM/HR...WITH HIGHER
GUSTS. IDA IS A CATEGORY ONE HURRICANE ON THE SAFFIR-SIMPSON SCALE.
WEAKENING IS EXPECTED AS IDA MOVES INLAND OVER NICARAGUA TODAY AND
TONIGHT. IDA IS FORECAST TO WEAKEN TO A TROPICAL STORM LATER
TODAY.

That is unless you don't frequent "rooftop" bars... so in that case, I guess I'll have to move my party to your party at the Tree.

The hack with this little wind. I went through all the bigger winds in the past decades, and actually moved during one.
My U-haul trailer was floating across the streeets.. not riding on them, so there be party to be had in the Keys.
You know where.. Thursday night.
