...High Risk of Rip Currents Atlantic Beaches until 8 PM tonight...
...Thunderstorms Possible Across South Florida...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.


Rip currents: There is a high risk of rip currents along the Atlantic
beaches until 8 pm EDT this evening.

Thunderstorms: There is a slight chance of thunderstorms across South
Florida tonight with higher chances over interior northern areas.
The main hazards are lightning and urban flooding from heavy rain.


Scattered to numerous showers and a few thunderstorms will continue
the threat of localized flooding again on Wednesday, with the
greatest likelihood of heavier rainfall and potential flooding over
the interior and Gulf coast.

A tropical disturbance is forecast to lift slowly northward into the
Gulf of Mexico late this week, bringing another surge of deep
tropical moisture to South Florida. This may lead to numerous to
widespread showers and thunderstorms affecting the region for the end
of the week, through the weekend. Heavy rainfall is possible during
this time, aggravating ongoing flooding concerns. In addition, gusty
winds and locally rough seas, and occasional lightning will accompany
this activity.

The risk of rip currents will remain elevated for the Atlantic
beaches through Wednesday, then again over the Memorial Day weekend.


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