Deep tropical moisture couple with developing southwest wind flow
will lead to numerous showers and lightning storms across east
central Florida today. Storms will form along and ahead of the
west coast sea breeze, reaching from Lake County to the Interstate
4 corridor between 100 PM and 400 PM, and then from I-4 across
the Florida east coast between about 400 PM and 800 PM.

Storms will move toward the northeast at 15 to 20 MPH today, with
the strongest storms capable pf producing wind gusts to around 50
MPH, frequent lightning, small hail, and torrential downpours of
1 to 2 inches. Move indoors to safety at the first sign of
threatening skies, or if you hear thunder.

Morning showers and squalls associated with Tropical Depression 3
could produce wind gusts up to 35 knots well offshore the east
coast this morning. Afternoon and early evening lightning storms
will also be capable of producing wind gusts of 35 knots or more
over large inland lakes, as well as the Intracoastal Waterway and
adjacent Atlantic waters. Boaters should be on the lookout for
storms approaching quickly from the southwest today.

An increasing ocean swell generated by Tropical Depression 3 will
lead to a moderate threat for dangerous Rip Currents in the Surf
Zone today. the threat will be highest through 10 AM this morning
and again after 4 PM this afternoon due to tidal effects.

To lessen your chance of becoming caught in the seaward pull of a
Rip Current, swim only within sight of a lifeguard, and heed their
warnings. Never swim alone.

South winds of 15 to 20 knots will produce seas to around 4 feet
over the waters well offshore from Mosquito Lagoon south today,
especially during the morning. Small craft operators should use
caution is venturing out beyond 20 nautical miles.

Coverage of showers and lightning storms will remain above normal
through the end of the week as winds remain out of the southwest,
favoring the eastern side of the peninsula. The main threat will
be cloud to ground lightning strikes, gusty winds, and ponding of
water on roadways from heavy downpours.

Spotters are requested to monitor the weather and self activate
if any Warnings are needed today.

...Tropical Depression Three Remaining East of South Florida...
...Scattered Thunderstorms with Locally Gusty Winds Today...
...Moderate Risk for Rip Currents Today for Atlantic Beaches...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.


Thunderstorms: Scattered thunderstorms are expected to continue over
the Atlantic waters this morning, with storm coverage increasing over
inland areas through the day. For this evening into tonight, storm
potential will decrease over inland areas while persisting over the
South Florida waters. Thunderstorms will be capable of producing
frequent lightning, gusty winds, and locally heavy rain.

Waterspouts: The potential for waterspouts will exist over the South
Florida waters for today and tonight, especially over the Atlantic
and Lake Okeechobee waters.

Wind: The strongest thunderstorms could produce localized wind gusts
of 40 to 50 mph.

Additionally, in association with the passage of Tropical Depression
Three across the Atlantic waters, the potential for sustained winds
reaching 15 to 25 knots will continue this morning from 20 to 60
nautical miles off the Palm Beach County coast.

Flooding: Localized flooding could occur, especially where multiple
storms move over the same locations. This potential is highest
across the east coast metro areas.

Rip currents: There is a moderate risk for rip currents for the
Atlantic Beaches today.

Temperatures: Heat indices are forecast to reach 100 to 105 degrees
this afternoon, with the highest of these readings expected over
interior sections of South Florida.


Scattered thunderstorms are expected each day through the period
across the outlook area. Frequent lightning, heavy rainfall capable
of producing localized flooding, and gusty winds will be the main
hazards with any storms through the week.

Heat indices could reach 100 to 105 degrees each afternoon through
the period, with the highest of these readings expected over interior
South Florida westward toward the Gulf Coast.


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