This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.


Rip currents: There is a moderate to high risk of rip currents along
the Atlantic beaches, especially coastal Palm Beach County.

Thunderstorms: Scattered showers and thunderstorms are expected this
afternoon and evening.

Flooding: Localized flooding may be possible across urbanized or poor
drainage areas, especially if multiple storms move over the same
locations in a short amount of time.

Waterspouts: A few waterspouts are possible over the Atlantic waters
and Lake Okeechobee.

Wind: Wind over the Atlantic waters will continue to gradually
subside today. Small Craft Advisories are still in effect for much of
the Atlantic Waters through the morning. Thunderstorms across the
Florida peninsula may contain gusty winds in the strongest activity.


Scattered thunderstorms will develop each day, primarily during the
afternoon hours. Gusty winds, occasional lightning, and heavy
rainfall may be possible. Localized flooding of urban and poorly
drained areas is also possible.

Heat index values on Tuesday could reach the 105 to 110 degrees for
portions of South Florida.


Widespread spotter activation is not anticipated, however individual
spotters are encouraged to report high wind, hail and flooding to
the National Weather Service forecast office in Miami.
