.NOW...
Through 1000 am, widely separated showers and isolated thunderstorms
will impact the Florida Keys, as well as nearshore and offshore
waters surrounding the island chain. These showers and storms will
move to the northwest at around 15 knots. The strongest storms will
produce an occasional lightning strike, wind gusts near 25 knots, and
brief, heavy rain, temporarily reducing the visibility to near two
miles. Over land, the most likely area to see rainfall will be from
Boca Chica to Cudjoe Key. The majority of showers and storms will be
located over nearshore waters adjacent to the Dry Tortugas.
