...Thunderstorms continue over the interior of South Florida...
...Heavy Rain Chances Increasing this Weekend into Next Week...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.


Thunderstorms: Scattered thunderstorms will continue to develop over
the interior and gulf coast through the early evening. The primary
hazards will be lightning, gusty wind and locally heavy rainfall.


Increasing tropical moisture is forecast to bring better storm
coverage Saturday into Sunday with locally heavy rainfall. A low
pressure system moving in from the east may bring widespread
precipitation by mid next week. Heavy rainfall and lightning will be
the main hazards.

Stronger southeasterly flow may bring an increased threat for rip
currents late this weekend.


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