...Scattered to Numerous Thunderstorms Mainly Interior Today...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Thunderstorms: Scattered to numerous showers and thunderstorms will
develop across South Florida today. The greatest coverage of storms
will be across the interior sections. The strongest storms could
contain gusty winds, heavy downpours, and frequent lightning.

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

Wind: The strongest thunderstorms today will be capable of producing
wind gusts of up to 50 mph.

Flooding: Saturated ground across much of the region will mean any
thunderstorms that produce heavy rain will bring the threat for at
least minor flooding of streets and poor drainage areas across all of
South Florida.

Temperatures: Warm and humid conditions will continue to produce
late morning and early afternoon heat index readings over 100
degrees for all of South Florida. Portions of South Florida,
especially across Collier, interior Miami-Dade, and Palm Beach
counties will see the highest values reach 105 to 108 degrees for an
hour or two around midday.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY

More numerous thunderstorms are expected to return for all of South
Florida early next week. Frequent lightning, heavy rain capable of
producing localized flooding, and gusty winds will continue to be the
main hazards.

Heat indices may reach around 105 to 108 degrees for a few hours in
the late morning and early afternoon through early next week.

.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.
