A strong cold front will move through the Keys this morning.
Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are expected this morning

northwest winds and building seas are expected, and Small Craft

again beginning Monday night and continuing through at least
Wednesday for much or all of the Keys waters, due to fresh to
strong east to southeast winds.

Another cold front may bring isolated thunderstorms to the Keys on
