THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
HIGHER MOISTURE AND A SLIGHTLY MORE UNSTABLE ATMOSPHERE THIS
AFTERNOON ARE EXPECTED TO BRING A RETURN OF SCATTERED LIGHTNING
STORMS. COVERAGE WILL BE HIGHEST ACROSS INTERIOR SECTIONS...
ESPECIALLY ALONG AND WEST OF INTERSTATE 4 WHERE BOUNDARY
INTERACTIONS BECOME NUMEROUS. A FEW STRONG STORMS WITH FREQUENT
LIGHTNING STRIKES AND GUSTY WINDS 40 TO 45 MPH ARE POSSIBLE.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
AN EAST SWELL WILL RESULT IN AN ENHANCED THREAT FOR RIP
CURRENTS...ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE BREVARD AND VOLUSIA COUNTY
COASTLINES. THE THREAT WILL BE GREATEST THIS MORNING AND LATE THIS
AFTERNOON DUE TO TIDAL EFFECTS. BEACHGOERS SHOULD ONLY SWIM AT
GUARDED BEACHES AND SHOULD CHECK WITH BEACH PATROL ABOUT OCEAN
HAZARDS BEFORE ENTERING THE SURF. NEVER SWIM IN THE OCEAN ALONE.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
ISOLATED STORMS SHOULD START TO FORM ALONG THE EAST COAST SEA
BREEZE DURING THE EARLY TO MID AFTERNOON BUT THE GREATEST CHANCE
WILL BE IN THE LATE AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING ACROSS INTERIOR
SECTIONS OF THE PENINSULA. STORM MOTION WILL BE SLOW AND
ERRATIC...BUT A GRADUAL PUSH BACK TO THE EAST COAST IS EXPECTED
ESPECIALLY FROM CAPE CANAVERAL NORTHWARD. A FEW STORMS MAY PRODUCE
WIND GUSTS AROUND 40 MPH.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
A CONTINUED LIGHT SOUTHEAST TO SOUTH WIND FLOW WILL KEEP QUITE
HIGH MOISTURE OVER THE AREA INTO MID TO LATE WEEK. THIS WILL
RESULT IN SCATTERED AFTERNOON TO EVENING STORMS WITH THE HIGHEST
COVERAGE FAVORING THE INTERIOR. A MORE SOUTHWEST WIND FLOW LATE IN
THE WEEK SHOULD START TO BRING A HIGHER COVERAGE BACK TO THE COAST.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY.
