...STRONG SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ON THE FLORIDA STRAITS...

THE COMBINATION OF AN ABUNDANCE OF MOISTURE AND A NEARBY TROUGH OF
LOW PRESSURE WILL CONTINUE TO GENERATE NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND SOME
THUNDERSTORMS ON THE FLORIDA STRAITS THIS MORNING. MOST OF THE CELLS
WILL LIFT NORTHWARD AT AROUND 10 KNOTS.

MARINERS ON THESE WATERS CAN EXPECT GUSTY WINDS TO NEAR 30
KNOTS...LOCALLY ROUGH SEAS...POOR VISIBILITIES IN HEAVY RAIN...AND
LIGHTNING STRIKES IN THE STRONGER STORMS.

BOATERS SHOULD STEER CLEAR OF THESE CELLS...BUT IF YOU DO GET CAUGHT
STAY BELOW DECK AND AWAY FROM ALL METAL OBJECTS.

STAY TUNED TO NOAA WEATHER RADIO FOR ADDITIONAL STATEMENTS OR
POSSIBLE WARNINGS FROM YOUR NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE IN KEY WEST.
