Please post (always) the surrounding code. The error is likely due to 
whatever is on the preceding line.

Here's your original code:

for key in h.keys():
        if wssd<-989. or wspd<-989. or wmax<-989.: break
        if wspd==0.: break

I was suggesting you replace all of that with:

print len(h)
for key in h.keys():
    except KeyError:
        print key

Keep in mind that Python uses indentation to convey structure instead of braces (like C).
