This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Rip currents: There is a moderate risk of rip currents along all
Atlantic beaches.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY

The rip current risk will remain elevated along the east coast 
beaches through at least Saturday. The rip current risk is expected 
to increase along the Collier County beaches on Sunday.

A cold front is forecast to sweep across South Florida on Sunday. 
Gusty winds and building seas will likely lead to hazardous marine 
conditions over all local waters Sunday and Monday. 

There could also be some minor coastal flooding along with rough surf
conditions along the beaches of Collier County on Sunday with the 
passage of the cold front.

Temperatures behind the cold front will fall into the 40s and lower 
50s across most of South Florida late Sunday night into early Monday
morning, with upper 30s possible across the Lake Okeechobee region. 
Wind chill values may drop into the 30s and and low 40s over much of
South Florida during this time frame.
