THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR SOUTH FLORIDA.

COASTS THROUGH THE MORNING HOURS. SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS

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

IMPACTS OF HURRICANE MATTHEW FOR SOUTH FLORIDA, ESPECIALLY TO THE
MAINLAND, MARINE CONDITIONS FOR THE ATLANTIC WATERS ARE EXPECTED
TO DETERIORATE EARLY NEXT WEEK. HAZARDOUS CONDITIONS MAY LINGER
THROUGH MUCH OF THE WEEK. THE ADVERSE MARINE CONDITIONS MAY ALSO
BRING THE CONCERN FOR BEACH EROSION AND COASTAL FLOODING. THESE
CONDITIONS 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.
