THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR SOUTH FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

THUNDERSTORMS: ONGOING THUNDERSTORMS OVER THE LOCAL ATLANTIC
WATERS WILL CONTINUE TO AFFECT THE EAST COAST AT TIMES THIS
MORNING. ADDITIONAL SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS THUNDERSTORMS ARE
EXPECTED TO DEVELOP THROUGH THE AFTERNOON HOURS ACROSS ALL OF
SOUTH FLORIDA. FREQUENT LIGHTNING AND LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL CAN
BE EXPECTED WITH MOST STORMS. THE STRONGEST STORMS MAY PRODUCE

HAIL: SMALL HAIL IS POSSIBLE TODAY WITH THE STRONGEST STORMS.

WINDS: GUSTY WINDS OF 40 TO 50 MPH WILL BE POSSIBLE WITH MANY
STORMS TODAY.

WATERSPOUTS: WATERSPOUTS ARE POSSIBLE OVER ALL SOUTH FLORIDA

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY

THE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS ALONG THE ATLANTIC COAST MAY INCREASE
LATE THIS WEEKEND. THE RISK WILL LIKELY INCREASE INTO NEXT WEEK.

SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE FORECAST EACH
DAY, ESPECIALLY DURING THE AFTERNOONS AND EVENINGS. A FEW STRONG
STORMS WILL BE POSSIBLE, WITH FREQUENT LIGHTNING AND GUSTY WINDS
THE MAIN THREATS.

THE NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER CONTINUES TO MONITOR THE PROGRESS OF
DANGEROUS MAJOR HURRICANE MATTHEW, CURRENTLY MOVING THROUGH THE
CARIBBEAN.

THERE REMAINS A GREAT DEAL OF UNCERTAINTY ON THE POTENTIAL
IMPACTS OF HURRICANE MATTHEW FOR SOUTH FLORIDA, ESPECIALLY TO THE
MAINLAND. HOWEVER, CONFIDENCE IS INCREASING IN DETERIORATING
MARINE CONDITIONS FOR THE ATLANTIC WATERS STARTING TUESDAY, WITH
THE POTENTIAL FOR HAZARDOUS CONDITIONS TO LINGER THROUGH MUCH OF
THE WEEK. THESE ADVERSE MARINE CONDITIONS MAY ALSO BRING BEACH
EROSION AND COASTAL FLOODING CONCERNS. THE EXACT NATURE OF THESE
IMPACTS WILL GREATLY DEPEND ON THE TRACK, STRENGTH, AND TIMING OF
THE SYSTEM.

NOW IS THE TIME TO REVIEW HURRICANE PREPAREDNESS PLANS AND TO
MAKE SURE YOUR HURRICANE SUPPLIES ARE FULLY STOCKED. INTERESTS IN
SOUTH FLORIDA SHOULD CONTINUE TO REMAIN WELL INFORMED ON THE
FORECAST REGARDING HURRICANE MATTHEW WITH THE LATEST INFORMATION
FROM THE NATIONAL HURRICANE CENTER AND NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE
MIAMI.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

WIDESPREAD SPOTTER ACTIVATION IS NOT ANTICIPATED, HOWEVER
INDIVIDUAL SPOTTERS ARE ENCOURAGED TO REPORT HIGH WINDS AND HAIL
TO THE NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE FORECAST OFFICE IN MIAMI.
