This Hazardous Weather Outlook is for the Florida Keys and
adjacent coastal waters.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Isolated thunderstorms are expected to affect the Florida Keys
and the surrounding coastal waters today and tonight.

The primary thunderstorm hazard will be cloud to surface
lightning strikes.

In addition, due to above normal astronomical tides near high
tides, a coastal flood advisory will remain in effect for all
the Florida keys today and tonight.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are possible along the
Florida Keys and the surrounding coastal waters through this
period.

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

For at least this weekend, light winds and ample low level
moisture will promote large towering cumulus with dark flat bases.
Subsequently, there will be a moderate risk for waterspouts,
especially on the nearshore waters adjacent to the Island Chain.

Remember, waterspouts can easily turnover small vessels.

If you sight a waterspout, determine the direction its moving and
get away from it.

Also, due to above normal astronomical tides, a coastal flood
statement/advisory may be needed along the Florida Keys through
most of this time period.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not anticipated.
