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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Due to an increase in winds from the east to west, a Small Craft
Advisory is in effect for all Keys coastal waters except the outer

Tortugas today. However, a Small Craft Advisory will be required
for our entire marine district tonight.

Otherwise, isolated to scattered thunderstorms are anticipated
along the island chain and the surrounding coastal waters today
and tonight, with the best chance for extended spells of heavy
rainfall tonight.

The primary thunderstorm hazards will be cloud to surface
lightning strikes and strong gusty winds near or above 40 mph in
the heavier cells. Stay tuned for possible marine weather
statements or possible warning issued by your National Weather
Service right here in Key West.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are possible along the Florida
Keys and the adjacent waters through the period. In addition,
spells of heavy rainfall are possible through most of the period.

The primary thunderstorm hazards will be cloud to surface lighting
strikes.
