...HIGH RISK OF RIP CURRENTS BEACHES OF PALM BEACH COUNTY...
...MODERATE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS REST OF ATLANTIC BEACHES...
...POSSIBLE THUNDERSTORMS ALL AREAS OF SOUTH FLORIDA TODAY...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Rip currents: There is High Risk of rip currents along the beaches 
of Palm Beach County, and a Moderate Risk of rip currents along the
rest of the east coast beaches of South Florida.

Thunderstorms: Thunderstorms are possible across South Florida 
today. The primary impacts will be lightning and heavy rainfall.

Waves: Northeast swells of 5 to 8 feet will generate seas of 6 to
8 feet in Palm Beach Waters today into tonight.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY

Drier air will work into South Florida this week from the north 
reducing the the thunderstorms to isolated coverage.

Long period northeast swells from distant Post-Tropical Cyclone Jose
and Hurricane Maria will continue to lead to an enhancement of rip 
currents along all Atlantic beaches for most of this week. 

Also, Atlantic coastal areas of South Florida may see high surf as 
early as Monday morning, which may also lead to some beach erosion, 
especially in Palm Beach County.

Marine hazardous conditions will continue to spread southward along 
the Atlantic waters early this week due to the long period of 
northeast swells.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not anticipated at this time.
