...COASTAL FLOODING DURING HIGH TIDES POSSIBLE NEXT FEW DAYS...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Thunderstorms: A few thunderstorms are possible, especially over
interior and metropolitan South Florida this afternoon. Lightning is
the primary threat.

Rip Currents: Moderate threat of rip currents exists along the
Palm Beaches.

Waves: Waves 4 to 6 feet expected for the waters off Palm Beach
County.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY

A cold front will stall out across the region, leading to showers
and thunderstorms again on Thursday. Cloud to ground lightning
strikes will be the primary threat.

Strong high pressure will build in behind the front late week,
leading to increasing northeasterly winds and deteriorating
conditions over the local marine areas. There will also be an
increasing risk for rip currents along Atlantic beaches.

The new moon along with the increasing winds may bring coastal
flooding during high tides along the Atlantic coast over the next
several days.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
