...Patchy Fog Possible Across Interior This Morning...
...High Risk of Rip Currents for Palm Beaches Today...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT

Visibility: Patchy fog will be possible through sunrise. Patchy
dense fog cannot be ruled out in the fog favored areas in the
interior.

Rip currents: There is a high risk of rip currents for the Palm
Beaches, with a moderate risk of rip currents for the remainder of
the Atlantic beaches today.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY

Elevated risk of rip currents may linger through the remainder of the
work week along the Palm Beaches as a result of northeasterly swell
offshore.

Rain chances increase early next week, especially across the Lake
Okeechobee region as a frontal boundary stalls across or just to the
north of our area.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will likely not be needed.
