...High Risk of Rip Currents for the Palm Beach Coast...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.

.DAY ONE...TONIGHT

Rip currents: There is High Risk of rip currents along the beaches of
northern Palm Beach County. There is a moderate risk of rip currents  
for the southern half of Palm Beach County.

Thunderstorms: Thunderstorms are possible over South Florida today 
with the best chances over the interior areas.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY

Scattered to numerous afternoon thunderstorms are possible over 
South Florida Friday and Saturday, before drier air works into the 
area late this weekend into early next week reducing the coverage of
the thunderstorms.

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

Atlantic waters could become hazardous this weekend into early next 
week due to the long period of northeast swells.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not expected at this time.
