Through 900 am, scattered showers will affect the Florida Keys, as
well as nearshore and offshore waters surrounding the island chain.
These showers will move to the west-southwest at around 15 knots. The
strongest showers will produce wind gusts near 25 knots and moderate
rain, temporarily reducing the visibility to near five miles. Over
land, the most likely area to see rainfall will be from Cudjoe Key to
Big Pine Key. The majority of showers will be located over the
Florida Straits.
