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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Isolated thunderstorms are anticipated along the Florida Keys and
the surrounding coastal waters through tonight. The primary
thunderstorm hazards will be cloud to surface lightning strikes
and strong gusty winds associated with the stronger and quickly
moving cells.

Otherwise, the observed water levels will lie near to just above
Coastal Flood Statement thresholds for at least portions of the
the Florida Keys. Hence, a Coastal Flood Statement will be
extended for parts of the Island Chain due to minor saltwater
flooding of low-lying lots and roads through tonight.

And finally, A Small Craft Advisory is in effect this morning for
the outer waters of Mainland Monroe to the waters in and around
Dry Tortugas, and southward into the western waters south for
60 nm. Despite a brief decrease in winds this afternoon, winds are
expected to freshen tonight, hence, a Small Craft Advisory may be
required for portions of our marine district.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY

Isolated thunderstorms are anticipated along the Florida Keys and
the surrounding coastal waters through the period.

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

Meanwhile, saltwater flooding of low-lying lots and roads will
likely require Coastal Flood Statements on Thursday, before
dropping below Statement levels thereafter.

And finally, a Small Craft Advisory may be required for portions
of our coastal waters Thursday through Friday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not anticipated.

Monroe Upper Keys-
856 AM EDT Wed Oct 21 2020

...COASTAL FLOOD ADVISORY IN EFFECT...

* WHAT...Saltwater flooding.

* WHERE...Upper Florida Keys.

* WHEN...Especially at the times of high tide, although there will
  be little to no relief at low tide.

* IMPACTS...Saltwater flooding of low elevation streets and lots
  is expected. Some storm drains will overflow, and some
  seawalls and docks will be overtopped. Boaters can expect less
  clearance under fixed bridges. Motorists should remember that
  persistent puddles around the times of high tide are almost
  certain to contain a mix of saltwater.

PRECAUTIONARY/PREPAREDNESS ACTIONS...

If travel is required, allow extra time as some roads may be
closed. Do not drive around barricades or through water of
unknown depth. Take the necessary actions to protect flood-prone
property.
