Gusty winds will whip up choppy seas and create a high rip current risk today in Palm Beach County, according to the National Weather Service.
The forecast calls for partly sunny skies with highs in the mid-80s and southeast winds around 15 to 20 mph.
Tonight is forecast to be mostly cloudy, becoming partly cloudy, with lows in the low 70s. The 15-20 mph winds will become easterly, forecasters say.
The threat of rip currents along the Atlantic beaches will likely remain high through mid-week, according to the hazardous weather outlook. Hazardous boating conditions are also possible.
Fog development is likely over the interior areas of South Florida the next few nights.
Rip currents are powerful channels of water flowing quickly away from the shore. They occur most often at low spots or breaks in sandbars and in the vicinity of structures such as jetties and piers.
Anyone headed to the shore is urged to use only those beaches with lifeguards, and to avoid structures such as piers and jetties where the currents can be especially strong.
If caught in a current, swimmers are urged to remain calm and stay afloat while waiting for help. If necessary, swim parallel to the shore and back toward the beach. Do not swim directly against the current.
An enhanced risk of rip currents will continue for much of the week.
