...Patchy Dense Fog This Morning and Again Late Tonight...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.


Visibility: Patchy fog is expected early this morning over interior
and Gulf coast areas, with dense fog possible becoming more
widespread late tonight over all but the east coast metro areas.
Visibility in these areas could be reduced to less than a half-mile
in spots, leading to hazardous driving conditions.

Fire Weather: There will be enhanced fire weather conditions today
due to low relative humidity over interior sections of South Florida,
mainly along and north of Alligator Alley. However, wind critical
thresholds are not expected to be met.


There is a slight chance of thunderstorms over South Florida Tuesday
and Tuesday night ahead of a cold front moving down the Florida
peninsula. A few storms have the potential of reaching strong or even
severe levels, especially around Lake Okeechobee, with high wind
gusts the main threat at this time.

The risk of rip currents will be elevated at the Gulf coast beaches
beginning Tuesday and lasting into Thursday. The rip current risk may
increase at the Atlantic beaches on Friday.

Seas are forecast to build to 7 feet and greater over the Gulf and
Atlantic waters on Wednesday behind the cold front, lasting through
the end of the week.


Spotter activation will not be needed.
