...High Risk of Rip Currents Palm Beach and Broward County Beaches...

This hazardous weather outlook is for South Florida.


Rip currents: Increasing northeast swells along the Southeast
Florida coast will lead to a high risk of rip currents at the beaches
of Palm Beach County and northern Broward County, and a moderate
risk for the southern Broward and Miami-Dade County beaches.

Waves: Seas will be 6 feet with occasional seas to 8 feet in the Gulf
Stream waters off Palm Beach County.

Fire Weather: There will be enhanced fire weather conditions today
due to low relative humidity over inland sections of Collier County.
However, wind critical thresholds are not expected to be met.


The rip current risk will remain moderate to high through Saturday
along the east coast beaches, especially Broward and Palm Beach
counties. The rip current risk is also expected to increase
substantially along the Collier County beaches on Sunday.

A strong cold front is forecast to sweep across South Florida on
Sunday. Thunderstorms are possible ahead of the front on Sunday
across South Florida and the adjacent waters, bringing gusty winds.
Increasing wind and seas will likely lead to hazardous marine
conditions over all local waters Sunday and Monday.

Temperatures behind the cold front will fall into the 40s and lower
50s late Sunday night and Monday morning, with wind chill values in
the 30s and 40s over much of South Florida during this time frame.


Spotter activation will not be needed.
