This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.


Rip Currents: There is a high risk of Rip Currents along the

A trough of low pressure in the western Caribbean is being monitored
by the National Hurricane Center for potential tropical development
over the next several days. This feature could provide for an
increased chance of showers and thunderstorms this weekend.

An elevated risk of rip currents will remain for Atlantic beaches
through at least the weekend. Swells from Hurricane Epsilon in the
Atlantic could linger into early next week, which could allow the
elevated rip current risk to extend into early to mid next week.


Widespread spotter activation is not anticipated. However,
individual spotters especially east coast metro areas are encouraged
to report high wind, waterspouts, and flooding to the National
Weather Service forecast office in Miami. Please relay any
information about observed severe weather to the NWS while following
all local, state, and CDC guidelines.
