...ELEVATED FIRE-WEATHER RISK THROUGH THE REST OF THE WEEKEND...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT

Rip currents: Moderate Rip Current Risk today for all beaches of
south Florida.

Temperatures: Apparent temperatures are forecast to drop to the
upper 30s to around 40 degrees across interior and western sections
of South Florida, with readings falling into the mid-upper 40s
across much of the remainder of South Florida.

Fire weather: moderate northwest winds and a very dry air mass will
support slightly elevated fire-weather conditions across South
Florida through the late afternoon hours.

Marine: increasing winds and seas tonight will lead to conditions
hazardous for small craft in the Atlantic and outer Gulf waters. A
Small Craft Advisory is in effect for these areas for tonight into
Saturday.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY

Elevated winds and seas could continue to produce periods of locally
hazardous marine conditions over the South Florida waters through
the rest of the weekend. A Small Craft Advisory is in effect for the
Atlantic and outer Gulf waters through 1 PM Saturday. Also, an
elevated rip- current risk is expected to continue for the beaches of
South Florida through the remainder of the weekend.

The considerably cooler air mass will persist through the weekend.
For Saturday and Sunday mornings, apparent temperatures are expected
to fall into the upper 30s to the lower 40s across interior and
western sections of South Florida. Readings in the 40s, to around 50
degrees near the coast, are expected elsewhere.

In addition, a dry air mass will combine with occasionally breezy
winds to produce elevated fire-weather conditions each day through
the weekend.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Spotter activation will not be needed.
