...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 beaches. 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. .SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...

Heed the advice of lifeguards, beach patrol flags and signs. Swim near a lifeguard. If caught in a rip current, relax and float. Don`t swim against the current.
