...Storms Today May Produce Locally Heavy Rainfall & Gusty Winds...
...Waterspouts Possible Across All South Florida Waters...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Thunderstorms: Thunderstorms will be possible across all of South
Florida today. The highest coverage is expected to be across the
Lake Okeechobee region and east coast later this afternoon. The main
hazards are heavy downpours, gusty winds, and lightning.

Flooding: Periods of heavy rainfall are possible with any showers and
storms today. Some activity may train across some areas more than
once, leading to the threat for ponding of water along streets and
in low lying areas. This threat will be highest across urban areas of
Southwest Florida late this morning and early this afternoon, and
across the east coast metro this afternoon and evening.

Waterspouts: Isolated waterspouts are possible across all South
Florida waters today.

Wind: The strongest thunderstorms will be capable producing wind
gusts up to 50 mph, mainly across the Lake Okeechobee region and east
coast this afternoon

Temperatures: Warm and humid conditions will lead to heat indices
above 100 across all of South Florida today. A few hours of heat
indices above 105 are possible for inland Southwest Florida.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY

Scattered to locally numerous storms are expected each day through
the upcoming week across South Florida. The highest coverage will
generally be along the east coast. The main hazards will be lightning
and locally heavy rainfall.

A small northeasterly swell may move through the local Atlantic
waters mid to late week, bringing an increasing rip current risk.

The approach of the New Moon late this week will bring an increase in
tidal levels.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

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.
