Sun, Clouds, and Some East Coast Storms

Saturday features good sun and a few clouds at times.  The east coast metro area will also see some afternoon storms at times, which could bring periods of heavy rain and localized flooding.  A high risk of dangerous rip currents is in place along the Palm Beach County coast this weekend.  Expect an elevated rip current risk — possibly a high risk — at the beaches of Broward and Miami-Dade during the weekend.  Highs on Saturday will be in the mid 80s right at the Atlantic coast and in the upper 80s elsewhere in South Florida.

Beach Safety Tips -Rip Currents/Dangerous Waves: Swim at guarded beaches, never swim alone, if caught in a rip…relax, call for help, and swim along the shoreline. -Heat: Remain hydrated, use sunscreen, and cool off in the water. -Lightning: Remain weather ready and head indoors or into a hard-topped vehicle if you hear thunder.
