This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.


Rip currents: There is a high risk for rip current along the
Atlantic beaches.

Lightning: A few storms are possible across portions of the Atlantic
waters overnight. Cloud to water lightning strikes will be the main

Flooding: Additional moderate rainfall will continue to spread
across South Florida through the late evening hours in addition to
ongoing showers moving onshore from the Atlantic. If heavy rainfall
occurs, it may aggravate any ongoing localized urban flooding, with
ponding of water in low- lying or poorly drained areas possible.

Waterspouts: Isolated waterspouts are possible across the local
Atlantic waters overnight, mainly with any heavier bands of showers
and storms.

Waves: Seas of 7 to 9 feet will continue in the Gulf Stream late this
evening, with occasional seas up to 7 feet in the offshore Gulf
waters. A gradual improvement is expected late tonight.

Wind: Gusty north-northeast winds around 20 knots will continue
across the local Atlantic and offshore Gulf waters through the late
evening hours.


Moderate north-northeast winds will continue to lead to seas in the
local Atlantic waters, mainly the Gulf Stream, above 7 feet through
Wednesday afternoon.

A moderate to high rip current risk will continue for the Atlantic
beaches through the week.


Spotter activation is not anticipated, however individual spotters
are encouraged to report severe weather, flooding, or other weather
hazards to the National Weather Service forecast office in Miami.
