...MODERATE RISK OF RIP CURRENTS EAST COAST BEACHES TODAY...
...PERIODS OF HEAVY RAINFALL POSSIBLE THIS WEEK...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Rip Currents: There is a Moderate Risk of Rip Currents along the east
coast beaches of South Florida today and tonight.

Thunderstorms: Scattered to numerous thunderstorms are expected
across south Florida, and the coastal waters today. The primary
impacts will be lightning strikes and locally heavy rainfall.

Flooding: Locally heavy rainfall could lead to the ponding of water
in poorly drained and low-lying areas.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY

Periods of rain and thunderstorms are expected through the end of
the week. The primary threats from thunderstorms will be heavy rain,
lightning strikes, and brief gusty winds.

Most locations will see a least to 2 to 4 inches of rain this week,
with locally heavier amounts. This may be sufficient to cause local
flooding problems. There is a reasonable threat of minor flooding of
streets and poor drainage areas. Ponding of water may lead to brief
lane closures affecting travel.

THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
A slow moving tropical wave over the Bahamas will approach the
southern Florida peninsula, bringing deeper moisture to southern
portions of east central Florida through tonight. Scattered
showers and isolated storms will mainly affect areas along and
south of a Melbourne to Saint Cloud line this afternoon with a
lingering lightning storm chance along the Treasure Coast
overnight. A few stronger storms will produce locally heavy rain,
gusty winds and cloud to ground lightning strikes.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
Ocean conditions will produce a moderate risk of rip currents
today. The rip currents are expected to be strongest in the
afternoon due to tidal effects. Remember to swim near a lifeguard.
If caught in a rip current, relax and float. Don`t swim against
the current. If able, swim in a direction following the shoreline.
If unable to escape, face the shore and call or wave for help.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
Brief wind gusts or 30 to 35 knots will be possible in isolated storms
over the open Atlantic and Intracoastal waters south of Sebastian
Inlet into this evening.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY.
The slow moving tropical wave just east of the state will bring
deeper moisture and increased chances for showers and storms
through late week and the first part of the weekend. The higher
coverage of showers and storms will allow some areas of locally
heavy rainfall which may cause minor flooding of roadways and poor
drainage areas.

An east swell will continue into late week at the Atlantic
beaches with a moderate rip current risk expected through at least
Friday.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
Spotter activation will not be needed today.
