...HIGH RISK OF RIP CURRENTS ALONG THE PALM BEACHES...

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 Palm
Beaches. There is a moderate risk of rip currents along the Broward
and Miami-Dade county beaches.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY

Marine conditions are forecast to deteriorate rapidly on Wednesday as
strong north and northeast winds overspread the local waters behind a
departing area of low pressure. Hazardous boating conditions are
expected through the end of the week, with the potential for gale
force gusts, as well as seas likely building to 10 to 14 feet in the
local Atlantic waters on Thursday.

The marine conditions will lead to a high risk of rip currents along
the Atlantic beaches, as well as the potential for beach erosion and
minor coastal flooding.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed today.

There is a high risk of rip currents.

Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away
from shore, which occur most often at low spots or breaks in the
sandbar and in the vicinity of structures such as groins, jetties
and piers. Heed the advice of lifeguards, beach patrol flags and
signs.

Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and
float. Don`t swim against the current. If able, swim in a
direction following the shoreline. If unable to escape, face the
shore and call or wave for help.
