.NOW...
THROUGH 700 PM...a broken line of showers will linger 10 to 40 nm
south of the florida keys... and isolated showers will impact florida
bay. As of 530 pm... no showers were observed across the island
chain... but an impact to the florida keys by forming isolated
showers may be possible. Storm motion will be nearly stationary. In
the stronger showers...mariners and residents can expect moderate to
heavy downpours...wind gusts above 20 mph... and visibilities
reducing to 4 miles or less. a stray lightning strike is not out of
the question. The strongest activity will be in the florida bay near
frank key and man of war key...with the individual storm cell slowly
drifting southward.
