...High Risk of Rip Currents for the Atlantic Coast Beaches...
...Flooding Possible in Palm Beach, Broward, and Miami-Dade Counties...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT

Rip Currents: There is a high risk of Rip Currents along the Atlantic
beaches.

Flooding: The stronger showers and thunderstorms could contain
periods of heavy rainfall which may lead to localized flooding,
especially along east coast metro and coastal areas. A Flood Watch
remains in effect.

Thunderstorms: A few thunderstorms are possible this evening. The
primary hazards are lightning, gusty winds, and urban flooding.

Wind: Gusty winds in excess of 20 to 25 knots are possible across
the South Florida waters with showers and thunderstorms.

Waterspouts: There is a slight chance of waterspouts over the South
Florida waters, mainly associated with thunderstorms and gusty
showers.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY

A trough of low pressure in the western Caribbean is being monitored
by the National Hurricane Center for potential tropical development
over the next several days. This feature could provide for an
increased chance of showers and thunderstorms this weekend. Flooding
is the primary concern.

The high risk of rip currents will continue over the Atlantic
beaches through the weekend.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Widespread spotter activation is not anticipated. However,
individual spotters especially east coast metro areas are encouraged
to report high wind, waterspouts, and flooding to the National
Weather Service forecast office in Miami. Please relay any
information about observed severe weather to the NWS while following
all local, state, and CDC guidelines.
