...MODERATE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS EAST COAST BEACHES...
...ISOLATED/SCATTERED STORMS POSSIBLE INTERIOR/WEST COAST...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Rip Currents: There is a Moderate Risk of Rip Currents along the east
coast beaches of South Florida.

Thunderstorms: Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are expected across
the interior and west coast metro areas this afternoon. The most intense
storms could produce occasional lightning, locally gusty winds, and
heavy rainfall. The greatest coverage of this activity is expected
over interior sections toward the Gulf coast of South Florida.

Waterspouts: An isolated waterspout cannot be ruled out this morning
over the Atlantic waters.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY

An elevated rip-current risk will persist through this week along
the Atlantic beaches. A more substantial increase in rip-current
potential is expected to occur from Wednesday into Thursday,
potentially persisting into the weekend.

Easterly winds will strengthen from middle to later parts of this
week, potentially resulting in hazardous marine conditions over
portions of the Atlantic coastal waters.

Isolated thunderstorms are expected on Tuesday, primarily over
interior and western sections of South Florida during the afternoon
and evening. Occasional lightning, along with locally gusty winds and
heavy rain, are expected to be the primary hazards with this
activity.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
