Mariners should exercise caution for gusty winds and higher seas during heavy showers or thunderstorms. Mariners should also be alert for waterspout activity during the daytime across all areas. Residents should take all precautions to remain hydrated and minimize outdoor exposure during peak sunshine periods as heat indices continue to reach the low triple-digit range. Localized flooding during heavy downpours across low lying and flood prone areas are expected.
