...HIGH RISK OF RIP CURRENTS EAST COAST BEACHES...
...WATERSPOUTS ARE POSSIBLE OVER SOUTH FLORIDA WATERS THIS MORNING...
...ISOLATED STORMS INTERIOR AREAS THIS AFTERNOON...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Rip currents: There is HIGH RISK of rip currents along all Atlantic 
beaches.

Thunderstorms: Isolated thunderstorms will be possible across the
interior areas of South Florida this afternoon. The main threat will
be occasional lightning strikes.

Waterspouts: There is a high chance of waterspouts over the Atlantic
Waters this morning, with a low chance of waterspouts over rest of
South Florida waters.

Waves: Seas of 4 to 6 feet are possible over the Atlantic Waters.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY

Scattered afternoon thunderstorms are expected over South Florida 
rest of this week, before drier air works into the area this weekend 
into early next week reducing the coverage of the thunderstorms.

Long period northeast swells from distant Hurricane Jose and 
hurricane Maria will continue to lead to an enhancement of rip 
currents along all Atlantic beaches through early next week.

The Atlantic seas will also become hazardous this weekend into early
next week due to the long period of northeast swells.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
