...Atlantic Beaches: High Rip Current Risk Today...
...Atlantic Waters: Hazardous Marine Conditions Continue...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Rip currents: There is a high risk of rip currents along the
Atlantic beaches. Across portions of the Palm Beach coast, this will
also be accompanied by rough surf of 5 to 7 feet this morning.

Thunderstorms: Isolated thunderstorms are possible ahead of the cold
front tonight into Monday. Gusty winds and lightning are the primary
concerns with any thunderstorms that develop.

Waves: Seas will remain above 7 ft across the Gulf Stream waters
today, particularly off Palm Beach County.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY

After a short lived improvement in marine conditions early in the week,
marine conditions will deteriorate once again particularly across the
Atlantic waters towards the middle of the week behind a cold front
that will move across South Florida on Monday.

The rip current risk is likely to remain high for most of the week
across the Palm Beach coast. It will be lower early in the week for
the Broward and Miami-Dade beaches but go up again in the middle to
latter part of the week.

A few thunderstorms are possible late Sunday and into Monday ahead
of the cold front.

This cold front moving through on Monday is expected to bring in colder
air to the region for Tuesday and Wednesday. Wind chill values Tuesday
morning may fall into the 30s across portions of inland Southwest
Florida to upper 40s and 50s elsewhere with the values in the 30s
across interior and 40s elsewhere by Wednesday morning.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
