Through 600 am, a couple of clusters of showers and possibly an
embedded thunderstorm will be found on the Gulf waters adjacent to
the Middle Keys and offshore Gulf waters west of mainland Monroe. The
stronger activity will produce wind gusts near 30 mph, blinding
downpours, and a rare lightning strike. This activity will move
northwestward at 10 to 15 mph. Island locations from the Torches to
Marathon will be most likely to receive a spell of moderate rain.
