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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are possible along the Florida Keys
and the surrounding coastal waters. Furthermore, a few lightning storms
may be strong with wind gusts in excess of 40 mph.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY

Tropical Storm Cristobal is expected to emerge off the Yucantan Peninsula
and into the Gulf of Mexico by late Friday, before moving northward and possibly
making landfall along the Gulf coast region Sunday night. As a result,
fresh to strong mainly southeast winds are likely to affect most of our
marine district with the highest winds likely on the western waters.
Subsequently, a Small Craft Advisory will likely be hoisted
for at least portions of our coastal waters perhaps beginning on Friday and
continuing through this weekend. Please stay tuned to the latest marine forecasts.

In addition, isolated to scattered thunderstorms, some of which may be strong
are possible across the Florida Keys and the surrounding coastal waters. Please
stay tuned to the latest forecasts, statements or possible warnings issued
by your National Weather Service right here in Key West.

The primary thunderstorm hazards will be wind gusts in excess of 40 mph, cut visibility
below 2 miles along with frequent cloud to surface lightning strikes in the stronger
storms.

And finally, locally heavy rainfall is possible along the island chain today through
Friday night.

Motorists should not drive through water of unknown depth.

Beginning next Monday, some drier air is expected to filter into our region, hence
showers and thunderstorms should become widely scattered which would return rain chances
to near normal for this time of year.
