   The severe weather threat for Severe Thunderstorm Watch 258

   SUMMARY...The threat for large hail and damaging winds continues
   across parts of the southeast Florida coast.

   DISCUSSION...Regional radar imagery and surface observations
   continue to show deep convection developing along and behind a
   southward-surging outflow boundary along the southeast FL coast.
   While most storms have struggled to intensify due to the
   undercutting nature of the boundary, a few deeper cells have managed
   to mature within an otherwise favorable supercell environment. A
   sea-breeze boundary remains evident along the southeastern FL coast
   ahead of the outflow boundary, and while deeper convective
   initiation has occurred within the past hour, strengthening
   low-level westerly winds has shifted the boundary closer to the
   coast, resulting in quick storm propagation offshore. The general
   expectation over the next 1-2 hours is for a continuation of
   scattered thunderstorms along the southeast FL coast with a few
   strong to severe cells capable of large hail and damaging winds.
   This threat will gradually abate through the evening hours amid the
   onset of nocturnal cooling and a continued southward surge of the
   undercutting outflow boundary.
