...SHOWERS AND STORMS ARRIVING LATE TONIGHT, A FEW STRONG...
...HAZARDOUS MARINE CONDITIONS CONTINUE...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT

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

Thunderstorms: Thunderstorms are possible starting late tonight
across portions of South Florida and local waters as a cold front
approaches the region. The best chances for storms will be across the
local Gulf and Atlantic waters, as well as the adjacent coasts. A
few of thunderstorms over the Gulf waters into the Gulf coast, and far
western portions of Glades and Hendry counties will have the potential
to become strong to severe, especially towards daybreak. In addition
to frequent lightning strikes, strong to severe wind gusts will be
the main impact.

Waterspouts: A few waterspouts are possible across all South Florida
waters with any showers or thunderstorms beginning in the early
morning hours on Thursday.

Wind: Southeast to south winds of 20 to 25 knots will continue
across the local Atlantic waters, with wind around 20 knots across
the offshore Gulf waters. A Small Craft Advisory remains in effect.

A few thunderstorms late tonight could produce strong to severe wind
gusts across the Gulf coast, far western portions of Glades and
Hendry counties, as well as across the open Gulf and Atlantic
waters.

Waves: Seas of 6 to 7 feet are forecast for much of the Atlantic
waters and far offshore Gulf waters through the overnight hours. A
Small Craft Advisory remains in effect.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY

The high risk for rip currents is forecast to continue through at
least Thursday for the Atlantic beaches.

Strong and gusty winds will continue to create hazardous boating
conditions across the Atlantic waters into Thursday.

Showers and thunderstorms are expected to be ongoing early Thursday
morning as a cold front moves through the region. The potential for
a few strong to severe storms will continue through early afternoon
before the front is expected to exit the area. The main impacts with
these storms will be frequent lightning strikes, with strong to
severe wind gusts also possible. Isolated tornadoes can not
be ruled out as the boundary moves through the area.

Another shot of cold air is expected to arrive behind the front
Thursday night, with low temperatures dropping into the 40s to
around 50 degrees across the interior and Gulf coast of Florida
each night through at least the weekend.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

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