...HAZARDOUS MARINE CONDITIONS FOR THE ATLANTIC WATERS...
...STRONG TO SEVERE STORMS POSSIBLE FOR PORTIONS OF SOUTH FLORIDA...
This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.
.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT
Rip currents: There is a high risk of rip currents for the Atlantic
Thunderstorms: Thunderstorms are possible through the day, across
South Florida. The best chances for strong to severe storms will be
north of a line from Marco Island to Juno Beach. The main hazards are
lightning and strong, gusty wind, which may cause isolated areas of
damage, mainly north of the line mentioned above. Also, there is a
possibility of isolated weak tornadoes in the same area that the
strong to severe storms are possible.
Waterspouts: A few waterspouts are possible across all South Florida
waters with any showers or thunderstorms through the day.
Wind: Southeast to south winds of 20 to 25 knots will continue
across the local Atlantic waters, with wind around 20 knots across
the offshore Gulf waters. A Small Craft Advisory remains in effect
for the Atlantic waters.
Strong to severe thunderstorms will have the potential to produce
wind from 45 miles per hour to around 60 miles per hour, generally
north of a line from Marco island northeast to around Juno Beach in
Palm Beach County.
Waves: Seas of 6 to 7 feet are forecast for the Atlantic waters off
the Palm Beach coast through the mid afternoon. A Small Craft
Advisory remains in effect.
Temperatures: The low temperatures in the Lake region are forecast
to be in the mid to upper 40s to around 50 late tonight.
Tornadoes: Isolated tornadoes are possible across much of South
Florida today, especially north of the line from Marco Island,
northeast to around Juno beach. Also, if any waterspouts form near
the gulf coast, there is a potential for them to move onshore along
the Gulf coast. Along the east coast metro area, there is also a
slight potential for isolated tornadoes to form along the Atlantic
coastal areas as showers and storms interact with the coastal
boundaries, which includes the southeast Florida metro areas.
.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY
Another shot of cold air is expected to arrive behind the front
Thursday night, with low temperatures dropping into the 40s to
around 50 degrees across the interior and Gulf coast of Florida
each night through at least the weekend.
