The seas will remain rough at beaches in Brevard, Volusia and Flagler counties Friday and Saturday.

Seas could be as high as 11 feet Friday, subsiding to 8 feet Sunday.

The high risk of rip currents will continue through late Saturday.


The weekend will be slightly drier than how it has been the last few days across our area. About 30% of Central Florida should receive measurable rain, but there will be some sunshine throughout the weekend. High temperatures will reach between 84 and 86 degrees and lows will stay in the low 70s.

Winds will be from the east-northeast between 5 to 10 mph.


Meanwhile, a tropical disturbance over the northwestern Caribbean could develop this weekend into a tropical system and Hurricane Epsilon is expected to remain east of Bermuda, but produce high surf and a high risk for rip currents along the east coast of Florida. Make sure to stay away from the water, or if you must swim near a lifeguard. Read more about the tropics below.
