...MODERATE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS TONIGHT ATLANTIC BEACHES...
...A FEW THUNDERSTORMS DEVELOPING TONIGHT SOUTH AND EAST...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT

Rip Currents: There is a Moderate Risk of Rip Currents along the east
coast beaches of South Florida tonight.

Thunderstorms: Scattered thunderstorms are likely to affect the east
coast, Atlantic waters, far south Florida, and the offshore Gulf
waters late tonight. The primary impacts will be lightning strikes
and locally heavy rainfall.

No other hazardous weather is expected at this time.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY

Periods of rain and thunderstorms are expected through the end of
the week. The primary threats from thunderstorms will be heavy rain,
lightning strikes, and brief gusty winds.

Most locations will see a least to 2 to 4 inches of rain this week,
with locally heavier amounts. This may be sufficient to cause local
flooding problems. There is a reasonable threat of minor flooding of
streets and poor drainage areas. Ponding of water may lead to brief
lane closures affecting travel.
