A Sunday morning made to get up in South Florida is expected to be a Sunday afternoon made for staying and (channel) surfing. Also, if you go to the beach when the sun is shining, be more careful about swimming than usual.
The National Meteorological Service predicts that heavy thunderstorms coming from the north will hit Palm Beach County, Broward County, and perhaps Miami-Dade County on Sunday afternoons or evenings. The NWS has a 60% chance of rain on Sunday afternoon at Miami Beach and 80% at Boca Raton, Fort Lauderdale and Miami-Dade inland.
“Strong winds and small hail are the main concerns, but the most intense activity in metropolitan areas can also create road ponds,” said the NWS. “Today, urban areas of South Florida can experience localized floods associated with the strongest floods and thunderstorms.”
Rip current risk alerts are issued until 8 pm Sunday on the beaches of the Miami-Dade, Broward, and Palm Beach counties.The·
▪ ▪ Swim near the guards.
▪ ▪ If you get caught up in the flow, don’t fight it. Relax and float or “swim along the coastline”.
▪ ▪ If you can’t get out of the stream, “go to the shore and call or wave your hand for help.”
