...HIGH RISK OF RIP CURRENTS BEACHES OF PALM BEACH COUNTY...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT

Rip Currents: A High Risk of Rip Currents remains in effect for the
beaches of Palm Beach County with a Moderate Risk of Rip Currents for
the beaches of Broward County.

Coastal Flood: Isolated and very minor coastal flooding will remain
possible along the Atlantic beaches of South Florida near times of
high tide.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY

A High Rip Current Risk continues for the beaches of Palm Beach
County into at least Sunday evening, as northeasterly swell
persists. Elsewhere across the Atlantic beaches, the risk for rip
currents is expected to be decreasing through this weekend.

A fast-moving weather system is forecast to be accompanied by
increased chances for showers across South Florida early next week.
Present indications are that the greatest chances for precipitation
will be on Monday into Monday night, when a few thunderstorms may
occur. While highly uncertain, localized flooding and a couple of
locally strong wind gusts could accompany this activity. Also,
hazardous marine conditions could materialize in association with the
passage of this system.

By late next week, there is some possibility for another disturbance
to begin affecting the weather across South Florida. There is significant
uncertainty regarding the details of any such disturbance and its
effect on local weather conditions. Nevertheless, residents and
visitors of South Florida are encouraged to monitor the latest
information from the National Weather Service in Miami, as the
potential for unsettled weather could eventually materialize by late
next week.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation is not anticipated through tonight.
