NOW
 
 
THROUGH 1015 PM, WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWERS AND PERHAPS AN ISOLATED  
THUNDERSTORM WILL MOVE WEST AT NEAR 10 KNOTS ACROSS THE NEARSHORE AND  
OFFSHORE COASTAL WATERS JUST NORTH OF THE ISLAND CHAIN. DRY AIR  
ALOFT WILL KEEP THE SHOWERS FROM BUILDING INTO STRONGER STORMS. A FEW  
SHOWERS JUST NORTH OF THE LOWER KEYS HAVE PRODUCED A FEW LIGHTNING  
STRIKES, BUT THESE ARE THE EXCEPTION. MOST OF THE REMAINING SHOWERS  
WILL BRING BRIEF, MODERATE RAINFALL REDUCING VISIBILITY TO LESS THAN  
4 NM AND WIND GUSTS NEAR 20 KNOTS. THE THREAT FOR LIGHTNING IS LOW.  
ELSEWHERE, AREAS OF THE UPPER KEYS WILL BE AFFECTED BY THESE SHOWERS  
FROM KEY LARGO NEAR CARD SOUND ROAD TO LOWER MATECUMBE KEY.
