...SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS AFTERNOON THUNDERSTORMS, MAINLY INTERIOR...
...HEAT INDICES BETWEEN 105 AND 107 DEGREES...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Thunderstorms: Scattered thunderstorms are expected to develop just
inland of the east and Gulf coast metro areas of South Florida early
this afternoon as the seabreezes develop. Coverage will increase
over interior areas of South Florida later this afternoon and evening
with the seabreeze collision. The primary impacts will be frequent
lightning strikes and locally heavy rainfall.

Temperatures: Heat indices will be above 100 degrees across most of
South Florida today, with values of 105 to 107 possible across
interior Collier County.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY

Scattered to numerous thunderstorms are expected across South
Florida into the end of the week, with the highest chances over the
interior. Increasing tropical moisture will bring better storm
coverage through the weekend, and potentially into mid next week. The
main hazards with storms will be locally heavy rainfall along with
frequent lightning.

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

Heat index values may exceed 105 degrees across the western and
interior areas of South Florida through at least Friday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
