life threatening rip currents and rough surf Sunday
NATIONAL WEATHER SERVICE • MELBOURNE, FLORIDA – A high risk of rip currents and large swells will continue along the east central Florida coast Sunday and Monday, with Jose positioned well offshore.
Swells from Hurricane Jose becoming fully arisen overnight will produce life threatening rip currents and rough surf at the east central Florida beaches overnight into Sunday. At the next high tide just before daybreak Sunday some minor beach erosion will be possible.
Poor to hazardous boating conditions exist over the Atlantic waters due to swells and northeast winds at 10-15 knots. Very rough conditions will exist near inlets during the outgoing tides as well.
Warm temperatures continue, with very low chance of rain to start the week.
The National Weather Service Weather Forecast Office in Melbourne, Florida forecasts for 10 counties in East Central Florida, including Brevard, Indian River, Lake, Martin, Okeechobee, Orange, Osceola, Saint Lucie, Seminole, and Volusia.
