   The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 24 continues.

   SUMMARY...A band of strong to occasionally severe storms, currently
   moving through the coastal areas of Miami-Dade and Monroe Counties,
   and the upper portion of the Florida Keys will move offshore by 10Z
   (5 AM EST) ending the severe-weather threat across South Florida.

   DISCUSSION...Satellite imagery and lightning data showed a 650-700
   mile long band of thunderstorms extending from 160- to 200-nm off
   the NC and SC coasts, respectively, to the coast of extreme South FL
   and into the Florida Straits (south of Key West, FL).  Cape/shear
   parameter space along and south of the ongoing band of storms
   continues to support locally strong winds gusts and/or a tornado as
   the line advances to the east/southeast at 25-30 kt.  Overall
   severe-weather threat is expected to end for South FL by 10Z.
