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

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

A Coastal Flood Statement was reissued for the next high tide
cycle, which will be from this evening through 400 to 600 AM for
the Lower and Middle Keys. Minor saltwater flooding of low
elevation streets and lots is likely. Moored vessels should allow
for more slack in their spring lines to account for the tidal
cycles, and boaters should plan for less clearance under fixed
bridges at times of high tide.

Isolated thunderstorms are possible today across the Straits of
Florida southeast of the Upper Keys. The main thunderstorm hazard
will be lightning strikes.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY

Peak water levels across the Lower and Middle Keys may continue
to reach Coastal Flood Statement thresholds during high tide on
Tuesday and Wednesday.

Otherwise, no hazardous weather is expected at this time.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not anticipated.

* WHAT...Minor saltwater flooding.

* WHERE...Middle and Lower Florida Keys.

* WHEN...From this evening through late tonight.

* IMPACTS...Minor saltwater flooding of low elevation streets and
  lots is likely. 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...

Do not drive through flooded roadways.
