...High Risk for Rip Currents for Palm Beach Beaches Today...
...Hazardous Marine Conditions for the Atlantic Waters Today...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.


Winds: Showers and thunderstorms today will be fast-moving and capable
of producing wind gusts of 30 to 40 mph. An isolated damaging wind
gust cannot be ruled out, especially for the east coast. Outside of
shower and thunderstorm activity, breezy conditions will continue for
the Atlantic. Due to this, Small Craft should Exercise Caution in
all Atlantic waters today, especially near the Gulf Stream.

Rip currents: There is a High Risk of Rip Currents for Palm Beach
beaches and a moderate rip current risk for the remainder of the
Atlantic beaches.

Thunderstorms: Isolated to scattered thunderstorms are expected
today into this evening, mainly for the east coast. This activity
will be capable of producing strong wind gusts, heavy rain, and

Flooding: A risk for localized flooding could accompany the shower
and thunderstorm activity, especially where this activity repeatedly
moves over the same locations. East coast metro areas are the most
prone for today due to the west/northwest flow and an enhanced chance
for showers/thunderstorms.

Waterspouts: There is a slight chance of waterspouts for all South
Florida waters.

Waves: Seas near 6 feet will be possible over the Atlantic waters,
especially over the Gulf Stream waters off the Palm Beach County

Temperatures: Heat indices of 105 to 108 degrees are possible across
portions of Collier, Mainland Monroe, and Miami-Dade Counties this


While Tropical Storm Humberto lurks well to the east of the Florida
peninsula, there is some potential for this system to be accompanied
by impacts across the Atlantic waters. This includes increased seas,
increased rip current activity, and increased swell. Increasing
swells are expected in the Atlantic waters through mid-week.

Through early next week, drier air continues to filter in along with
prevailing winds from the northwest/west. Due to this pattern shift,
an increase in strong wind gust potential will be on the rise during
this period, especially for the east coast.


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.
