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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Tropical Storm Cristobal is expected to emerge off the Yucantan
Peninsula and into the Gulf of Mexico late today, then move
northward through the Gulf of Mexico tonight. As a result, fresh
to strong mainly southeast winds are likely to affect portions
Keys waters 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 beginning 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.

Locally heavy rainfall is possible along the island chain today
through tonight. Motorists should not drive through water of
unknown depth.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY

Tropical Storm Cristobal is expected to make landfall along the
central Gulf coast region Sunday night. Fresh to strong mainly
southeast winds are likely to affect portions of Keys waters with
the highest winds likely on the western waters. Winds will
diminish substantially on Sunday as Cristobal begins moving
further away from our area. Subsequently, a Small Craft Advisory
may be required for portions of Keys waters until late Sunday.

Isolated to scattered thunderstorms, some of which may be strong
are possible across the Florida Keys and the surrounding coastal
waters. The primary thunderstorm hazards will be wind gusts in
excess of 40 mph and occasional lightning strikes.

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.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not anticipated.
