...MODERATE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS TONIGHT ATLANTIC BEACHES...
...PERIODS OF HEAVY RAINFALL POSSIBLE THIS WEEK...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT

Rip currents: there is a moderate risk of rip currents at the
Atlantic beaches.

Thunderstorms: Scattered evening thunderstorms over the interior of
South Florida and extending to the Collier County coast will move
offshore and affect the nearshore Gulf waters tonight. Additional
scattered thunderstorms will move onshore the east coast later
tonight from the Atlantic.

Flooding: Locally heavy rainfall could lead to the ponding of water
in poorly drained and low-lying areas.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY

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
and possibly into the upcoming weekend, with locally heavier
amounts. This may be sufficient to cause local flooding problems.
There is a reasonable threat of flooding of streets and poor drainage
areas. All residents and visitors are urged to continue monitoring
this threat over the next few days.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Widespread spotter activation is not anticipated, however individual
spotters are encouraged to report high wind and flooding to the
National Weather Service forecast office in Miami.
