...High Rip Current Risk for the Palm Beaches...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.


Rip currents: A High Rip Current Risk is in effect for the Palm
Beaches. A moderate risk for rip currents is in effect for the
remainder of the South Florida Atlantic beaches.

Wind: While highly uncertain, there is a small possibility that
showers capable of producing locally strong wind gusts develop after
midnight from parts of southwest Florida northeastward toward the
Lake Okeechobee region. An isolated thunderstorm cannot be completely
ruled out, and overall shower development is highly uncertain, though
locally strong wind gusts could accompany this activity if it were to

Visibility: Patchy fog may develop late tonight across interior and
western parts of South Florida, with visibilities potentially
lowering to one mile or less in some areas.


A few thunderstorms are possible on Wednesday as a cold front passes
through South Florida. Lightning is the primary hazard, however a
few strong wind gusts are possible. This risk remains uncertain, so
residents and visitors of South Florida are encouraged to monitor the
latest forecasts.

Behind the front, hazardous marine and beach conditions could
develop late Wednesday and continue into the weekend. Elevated rip-
current conditions are expected to continue for the Atlantic beaches
through the week, especially for the Palm Beaches where a High Rip
Current Risk continues into Wednesday evening. The rip-current risk
will also increase later this week into this weekend for the South
Florida Gulf beaches.


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