...Moderate Risk of Rip Current Atlantic Beaches Today...
...Thunderstorms Possible Across South Florida Today...
...Potential for Heavy Rains/Flooding and Isolated Tornadoes This Weekend...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.


Rip currents: There is a moderate risk of rip currents along Atlantic

Thunderstorms: A few thunderstorms will be possible over the
Atlantic waters and east coast this morning into the afternoon, then
across the interior and Gulf coast this afternoon and evening. The
main hazards with any storms will be cloud-to-ground lightning and
locally heavy rainfall.

Waterspouts: Isolated waterspouts will be possible in the coastal and
lake waters adjacent to South Florida today.


A tropical disturbance is forecast to lift slowly northward into the
Gulf of Mexico late this week into the weekend, bringing another
surge of deep tropical moisture to South Florida. Regardless of any
development, numerous to widespread showers and some thunderstorms will
possibly return to the forecast for the end of the week, continuing
through the Memorial Day weekend. Heavy rainfall will be possible
during this time, aggravating ongoing flooding concerns. In addition,
gusty winds and locally rough seas, and occasional lightning may
accompany this activity. Isolated tornadoes particularly Saturday and
Sunday are also a concern.

The risk of rip currents will remain elevated for the Atlantic
beaches through the Memorial Day weekend. Elevated seas and rip
current risks will also be possible this weekend into early next
week over the Gulf waters and Collier beaches.


Spotter activation will not be needed.
