Thursday starts with fog in the suburban portions of the east coast metro area and in the interior. Then the day features a mix of sun and clouds with a shower or two in spots. A high risk of dangerous rip currents remains along the Palm Beach County coast, and there’s a moderate rip current risk along the Gulf coast and at the beaches of Broward and Miami-Dade. Highs on Thursday will be in the low 80s near the Atlantic coast, the mid-80s elsewhere in the east coast metro area, and near 80 degrees along the Gulf coast.
