Maximum sustained winds remain near 40 mph (65 km/h) with higher gusts, mainly in squalls.

Tropical storm conditions are still possible in western Cuba through this morning, mainly in squalls. STORM SURGE: The combination of storm surge and the tide will cause normally dry areas near the coast to be flooded by rising waters moving inland from the shoreline. The water could reach the following heights above ground somewhere in the indicated areas if the peak surge occurs at the time of high tide… Marco Island, FL to North Miami Beach, FL including Biscayne Bay…1-2 ft Florida Keys and Dry Tortugas…1-2 ft Extreme Northwestern Bahamas: Storm surge could raise water levels by as much 1- 3 ft above normal tide levels.
