Through 1030 pm, clusters of showers will track west northwestward
at around 15 mph over Hawk Channel and Florida Straits, mainly within
30 nm off of the Upper Keys. The stronger activity will produce wind
gusts near 30 mph, blinding downpours, and perhaps a few lightning
strikes. island locations from Long Key through Rock Harbor will be
most likely to be affected by rounds of these showers as they cross
over the island chain.
