.NOW...
THE LATEST SHORT RANGE MODELS CONTINUE TO SHOW STORMS BUILDING
NORTHWEST ALONG THE SEA BREEZE BOUNDARY FROM INTERIOR MARTIN COUNTY
THROUGH OKEECHOBEE AND OSCEOLA COUNTIES THIS AFTERNOON.  THE STORMS
SHOULD REACH WESTERN ORANGE COUNTY AND LAKE COUNTY DURING THE EARLY
EVENING.  A FEW STRONG STORMS WITH FREQUENT LIGHTNING STRIKES ARE
EXPECTED.

SOME DRIER AIR ALOFT WAS INFILTRATING THE AREA...WHICH SHOULD KEEP
OVERALL STORM COVERAGE LIMITED...EXCEPT CLOSE TO THE SEA BREEZE
BOUNDARY OVER INTERIOR SECTIONS.  THIS DRIER AIR ALOFT COULD RESULT
IN GUSTY SURFACE WINDS TO AROUND 50 MPH WITH A FEW OF THE STORMS...
WHICH WOULD PARTICULARLY BE A HAZARD TO BOATERS ON INLAND LAKES.
