Issued at 140pm EDT Sunday September 25 2022 There are no watches, warnings, or advisories currently in effect for the coastal waters of the Florida Keys. Coastal Flood Statements remain in effect for the coastal waters of the Florida Keys. Boaters should be mindful of less clearance under fixed bridges during high tide, and moored boats should allow for extra scope in dock and spring lines.

Light to gentle breezes this afternoon will freshen tonight and Monday ahead of Tropical Storm Ian. Tropical Storm Ian is forecast to strengthen into a hurricane over the northwestern Caribbean Sea this evening or tonight, then track northward across western Cuba and into the southeastern Gulf of Mexico, passing near or west of the Dry Tortugas from Monday night through early Wednesday morning. Despite a likely track to the west of the Dry Tortugas, hazardous marine conditions are expected in all of the Florida Keys coastal waters beginning Monday night and lasting through at least Wednesday night. Large seas will persist for several days after the squally weather ends.

Mariners should continue to monitor the latest information provided by the National Hurricane Center and the National Weather Service office in Key West.

Climate
