...Isolated Strong to Severe Thunderstorms Possible Today...
...Flash Flooding Possible This Afternoon East Coast Metro...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.


Thunderstorms: A few of the thunderstorms could become strong to
even severe over South Florida this afternoon into this evening. The
primary impacts at this time will be lightning strikes, strong to
damaging wind gusts, hail, and locally heavy rainfall.

Tornadoes: An isolated tornado cannot be ruled out, especially over
the eastern areas of South Florida with the strongest storms today.

Waterspouts: Waterspouts are possible across the South Florida
waters, particularly the Atlantic waters.

Wind: Strong to damaging wind gusts are possible with strong to
severe thunderstorms today.

Hail: Hail up to the size of a quarter dollar is possible with strong
to severe thunderstorms today, mainly over southeastern Florida.

Flooding: Urban flooding is possible with repeated rounds of heavy
rainfall from showers and thunderstorms today. Portions of the east
coast metro areas are also at risk of flash flooding due to
saturation from previous heavy rainfall.

Visibility: Patchy fog could develop once again late tonight mainly
over the interior and western areas. Some of the fog could become
locally dense reducing visibilities to a quarter of a mile or less.


An elevated risk of rip currents return to the Atlantic beaches this
weekend. An elevated rip current risk will develop along the Gulf
beaches behind a cold front late this weekend. These elevated rip
current risks will persist into next week along with the potential
for high surf and hazardous marine conditions.

Colder temperatures are expected early next week behind the cold
front. Overnight lows in the upper 30s with minimum wind chills in
the mid 30s will be possible over inland Southwest Florida Sunday
night into Monday morning.

Thunderstorm chances may return by mid next week with the next cold


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.
