...High Risk of Rip Currents Atlantic Beaches...
...Isolated to Scattered Thunderstorms Across South Florida...
...Locally Heavy Rainfall Possible With Showers and Storms...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.


Rip currents: There is a high risk of rip currents along the Atlantic

Thunderstorms: Isolated thunderstorms will be possible over the
Atlantic waters and east coast this morning, moving over the
interior and Gulf coast into this afternoon and evening.
Thunderstorms are expected to move into the Gulf waters late this
evening. The main threats with any storms will be cloud to ground
lightning, periods of heavy rainfall, and gusty winds.

Waterspouts: A few waterspouts are possible over the local waters
with the stronger showers and thunderstorms.

Wind: Gusts of 40 to 45 mph are possible with stronger showers and

Flooding: Showers and thunderstorms across South Florida today will
have the potential to lead to additional flooding of streets and poor
drainage areas, aggravating any ongoing flooding concerns.


Scattered to numerous showers and a few thunderstorms will continue
the threat of localized flooding again on Wednesday, with the
greatest likelihood of heavier rainfall and potential flooding over
the interior and Gulf coast.

A tropical disturbance is forecast to lift slowly northward into the
Gulf of Mexico late this week. Regardless of any additional
development, it is expected to bring another surge of deep tropical
moisture across South Florida, leading to numerous to widespread showers
and thunderstorms affecting the region beginning Thursday and lasting
into the upcoming Memorial Day weekend. Additional periods of heavy
rainfall are likely during this time, aggravating ongoing flooding
concerns. In addition, gusty winds and locally rough seas, and
occasional lightning strikes will accompany this activity.

The risk of rip currents will remain elevated for the Atlantic
beaches through Wednesday, then again over the Memorial Day weekend.


Widespread spotter activation is not anticipated, however individual
spotters are encouraged to report flooding to the National Weather
Service forecast office in Miami.
