MIAMI - The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration said in a forecast Friday that some beachgoers in South Florida could experience mild symptoms such as sneezing, coughing and watery eyes.

According to state testing, the highest red tide concentration is at Carlin Park Beach in Palm Beach County, and there were no signs of red tide in the southwest area of Bill Baggs Cape Florida State Park in Miami-Dade and the Dania Pier and Hillsboro Inlet in Broward.
