THERE WILL BE A SLIGHT CHANCE FOR AN AFTERNOON LIGHTNING STORM MAINLY
ACROSS THE SOUTHERN TREASURE COAST...OKEECHOBEE COUNTY AND AROUND
LAKE OKEECHOBEE AS DAYTIME HEATING AND ADDITIONAL INSTABILITY ACROSS
SOUTH FLORIDA ALLOWS CONVECTION WITH A FEW LIGHTNING STRIKES TO
DEVELOP. A SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY CONTINUES ACROSS THE EAST CENTRAL
FLORIDA ATLANTIC WATERS WHERE SEAS WILL BUILD OVER 8 FEET OFFSHORE AS
ONSHORE FLOW STRENGTHENS TO AROUND 20 KNOTS. THERE WILL BE ROUGH SURF
AND A MODERATE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS AT THE ATLANTIC BEACHES TODAY.
