While the forecast track of the center lies about 35 miles southeast of the Upper Florida Keys and extreme southeast Florida and most of the winds are expected to remain east of the center, only a slight deviation to the west of the expected track or an increase in the size of the wind field could bring tropical-storm- force winds across these land areas. For that reason, a tropical storm watch has been issued for these areas.
