Weather window from Key West

Hey all,
Waiting out the cold front coming in at Key West mooring field. Headed due south on a 90 mile run. Any predictions on a good window coming up?

Re: Weather window from Key West

If you can't access offshore weather on your own, you're gonna be in real trouble out there. I suggest you do a little more homework before you put your crew and boats' safety in the hands of some random info you receive on this site.

Certainly appreciate your candid if not "overblown" reply. Frankly, I have all the technology and experience I need to be safe. Was only wondering if others were watching for a similar crossing. You know what opinions are like and you certainly have one.

My guess is after the front passes the winds should turn to the NE and stay that direction for at least a couple of days. Would be a good broad reach but the Gulf Stream may be a little bumpy.
