Through 800 am, a band of showers and thunderstorms will impact the
offshore Gulf waters 25 to 40 nm west of Mainland Monroe County, the
nearshore Gulf waters north of the Lower Keys inside the Five fathom
line, Hawk Channel between Big Pine Shoal and American Shoal Light,
and the Atlantic waters out 25 nm from the Reef. Over land, the
heaviest rainfall will impact Cudjoe Key, Summerland Key, and the
Torch Keys. Locations here could receive up to an additional half of
an inch of rain. Mariners and motorists in the path of the stronger
activity will encounter brief moderate to heavy rainfall accompanied
by visibility less than 2 nm, wind gusts around 25 mph, and
occasional lightning strikes. Movement of individual showers and
storms is slowly between north and northwest at about 5 knots.
