Through 730 am, small isolated showers will be concentrated both in
Hawk Channel and the Eastern Florida Straits waters out 60 nm from
the Upper Florida Keys. A few showers will move across locations in
the Upper Keys. Elsewhere on the waters, isolated showers will be
found across the Western Florida Straits waters generally 20 nm
north and 50 nm south of Rebecca Shoal Light west to Dry Tortugas
Light. The stronger showers will deliver brief heavy rainfall
accompanied by visibility below three miles, wind gusts around 25
knots, and possibly a few lightning strikes. Movement of individual
showers is to the southwest at 5 to 10 knots.
