...STRONG STORMS WITH GUSTY WINDS SOUTH OF MIDDLE AND LOWER KEYS...

A BROKEN LINE OF THUNDERSTORMS ARE MOVING TOWARDS THE NORTH AT 10
KNOTS OVER THE ATLANTIC WATERS SOUTH OF THE MIDDLE AND LOWER KEYS
APPROACHING HAWK CHANNEL. THROUGH MIDNIGHT...THESE STORMS WILL
IMPACT THE WATERS SURROUNDING THE MIDDLE AND LOWER KEYS. THE
STRONGEST STORMS WILL PRODUCE GUSTY WINDS APPROACHING 30
KNOTS...OCCASIONAL LIGHTNING STRIKES...BLINDING DOWNPOURS THAT
WILL REDUCE VISIBILITY BELOW 1 NM...AND LOCALLY ROUGH SEAS.

THUNDERSTORMS POSE A VARIETY OF THREATS TO BOATER SAFETY FROM BOTH
GUSTY WINDS AND LIGHTNING. YOUR BEST COURSE OF ACTION DURING
THUNDERSTORMS IS TO SEEK SAFE HARBOR...BUT IF YOU ARE CAUGHT ON THE
OPEN WATER...STAY BELOW DECK...IF POSSIBLE...AND AWAY FROM UNGROUNDED
METAL OBJECTS.
