.NOW...
Through 1100 pm, scattered showers and thunderstorms will spread
through the Florida Straits southeast of the Middle and Upper Keys
and nearshore north and south of the Lower Keys. Boaters encountering
these showers and storms can expect wind gusts of 25 to 30 knots,
dangerous lighting strikes, and visibility below 2 miles in heavy
downpours as they move generally toward the west around 15 knots.
Some of these showers will affect the Upper and Lower Keys during
the next few hours.
