...Scattered thunderstorms Wednesday capable of strong winds...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.


Thunderstorms: The potential for isolated to widely scattered
thunderstorms will exist through the overnight hours over the South
Florida Atlantic and Gulf waters. Occasional lightning, brief heavy
rainfall, and locally gusty winds could accompany this activity.

Rip currents: A moderate risk for rip currents continues for the
beaches of Palm Beach County.


Scattered thunderstorms are expected each day through the period
across the outlook area. Frequent lightning, heavy rainfall capable
of producing localized flooding, and gusty winds will be the main
hazards with any storms.

Present indications are that thunderstorms on Wednesday will pose
the greatest potential of producing strong wind gusts, and an
isolated damaging wind gust cannot be ruled out. Locations with the
greatest potential to experience this activity are northern sections
of South Florida including the Lake Okeechobee region, as well as the
east coast metro areas and vicinity.

Additionally, heat indices could reach 100 to 105 degrees each
afternoon through the period, with the highest of these readings
expected over interior South Florida.


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