Chances for showers and thunderstorms will increase into early next
week. The strongest thunderstorms could contain gusty winds, heavy

Heat index values will continue to be near the triple digits most
days, with the highest values observed over inland areas.

The risk of rip currents will remain elevated across all Atlantic

the Atlantic waters.

Some minor coastal flooding is possible today and Monday around the
high tide cycles.

While uncertain on exact locations and extent of impacts, Tropical
Storm Ian is forecast to intensify as it moves northwestward over
the Caribbean Sea, and enter the southeastern Gulf of Mexico early
next week. Hazardous conditions may materialize, and subtle
deviations in the official forecast track may have major
implications on the extent and duration of impacts for South
Florida. Now is the time to ensure you have a hurricane preparedness
plan in place. Be sure to monitor and pursue updates to the official
forecast as more information become available.


Spotter activation is not expected at this time.
