THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR THE FLORIDA KEYS AND
ADJACENT COASTAL WATERS.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

...THERE IS A MODERATE RISK FOR WATERSPOUTS THIS AFTERNOON AND
   EARLY EVENING...

THE COMBINATION OF AMPLE LOW LEVEL MOISTURE AND AN INCREASINGLY
FAVORABLE WIND PROFILE SHOULD ALLOW CLOUD LINES TO FORM AND HOVER
NEAR THE ISLAND CHAIN THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING. WITHIN THESE
CLOUD LINES...THERE IS A MODERATE RISK FOR WATERSPOUT DEVELOPMENT ON
THE NEARSHORE WATERS ADJACENT TO THE ISLAND CHAIN.

REMEMBER...WATERSPOUTS TEND TO FORM NEAR LARGE CLOUD BUILDUPS WITH
DARK FLAT BASES. IF YOU SIGHT A WATERSPOUT...DETERMINE THE DIRECTION
ITS MOVING AND MIGRATE AWAY FROM IT.

OTHERWISE...ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE ALONG THE FLORIDA
KEYS...AS WELL AS THE NEARSHORE AND OFFSHORE WATERS SURROUNDING THE
ISLAND CHAIN. THE PRIMARY THUNDERSTORM HAZARDS ARE CLOUD TO SURFACE
LIGHTNING STRIKES.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY

ISOLATED THUNDERSTORMS ARE POSSIBLE ALONG THE FLORIDA KEYS AND THE
ADJACENT NEARSHORE AND OFFSHORE COASTAL WATERS. THE PRIMARY
THUNDERSTORM HAZARD WILL BE CLOUD TO SURFACE LIGHTNING STRIKES.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

SPOTTERS...PLEASE KEEP A LOOK OUT FOR THE POSSIBILITY OF WATERSPOUTS
WITHIN DEEP CLOUD LINE FORMATION THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING.
