.NOW...
THE MIDDAY CLOUD PATTERN SHOWED THE SEA BREEZE SETTING UP RIGHT
ALONG THE EAST COAST.  CLOUDS WERE A LITTLE MORE DEVELOPED ALONG THE
TREASURE COAST WHERE A FEW SLOW MOVING SHOWERS HAD OCCURRED.
SLIGHTLY LOWER SURFACE DEW POINTS WERE INDICATED ACROSS MUCH OF THE
REST OF THE AREA.

THE LATEST SHORT RANGE MODELS SUGGEST THAT STORMS WILL BUILD
NORTHWEST ALONG THE SEA BREEZE BOUNDARY FROM INTERIOR MARTIN COUNTY
THROUGH OKEECHOBEE AND OSCEOLA COUNTIES THIS AFTERNOON.  A FEW
STRONG STORMS WITH FREQUENT LIGHTNING STRIKES ARE EXPECTED.  THE
STORMS SHOULD REACH WESTERN ORANGE COUNTY AND LAKE COUNTY DURING THE
LATE AFTERNOON OR EARLY EVENING.

SOME DRIER AIR ALOFT WAS INFILTRATING THE AREA...WHICH SHOULD KEEP
COVERAGE LIMITED...EXCEPT CLOSE TO THE SEA BREEZE BOUNDARY OVER
INTERIOR SECTIONS.  THIS COULD RESULT IN QUITE GUSTY WINDS TO AROUND
50 MPH WITH A FEW OF THE STORMS...WHICH WOULD PARTICULARLY BE A
HAZARD TO BOATERS ON INLAND LAKES.
