below is pasted from Key West NWS tonight - our local radar shows signs of a rotation basically west of Key West but I admit this is speculation. Safe to say - it's a mess out there.
SURFACE ANALYSIS DEPICTS A VERY COMPLEX PATTERN ACROSS THE REGION. THERE APPEARS TO BE A WEAK LOW PRESSURE AREA IN THE YUCATAN CHANNEL... AND ANOTHER WEAK SURFACE LOW NEAR THE CENTRAL BAHAMAS. A STATIONARY FRONT LIES ACROSS SOUTH FLORIDA AND THE SOUTHERN GULF OF MEXICO... WITH STRONG HIGH PRESSURE AND NORTHEASTERLY FLOW COVERING THE GULF TO THE NORTH OF THIS FRONT. AT MID LEVELS...AN EQUALLY COMPLEX PATTERN PREVAILS...WITH AN UNSEASONABLY STRONG SHORTWAVE STARTING TO CUT OFF OVER THE EAST-CENTRAL GULF...AND A SEPARATE CYCLONIC CIRCULATION MOVING SLOWLY NORTHWARD BETWEEN CUBA AND THE CENTRAL BAHAMAS. AT UPPER LEVELS...THE KEYS LIE UNDERNEATH STRONGLY DIFFLUENT FLOW...ALONG THE LEADING FLANK OF A SHARP TROUGH OVER THE EASTERN GULF.
