THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
THE STALLED BOUNDARY THAT HAS BEEN IN PLACE FOR THE PAST WEEK WILL
CONTINUE TO WEAKEN TODAY...ALLOWING ONSHORE FLOW TO DEEPEN ACROSS
EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA. DEEP MOISTURE WILL REMAIN IN PLACE OVER THE
REGION...WHICH IN COMBINATION WITH DAYTIME HEATING WILL RESULT IN
NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND SCATTERED LIGHTNING STORMS THIS AFTERNOON.

SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL MOVE ONTO THE COAST FROM THE ATLANTIC THIS
MORNING...WITH EASTERLY FLOW FOCUSING HIGHER RAIN CHANCES WESTWARD
OVER THE INTERIOR AND WEST FLORIDA FROM LATE AFTERNOON THROUGH EARLY
EVENING.

THE MAIN THREATS FROM TODAY`S STORMS WILL BE TORRENTIAL
RAINFALL...AND CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING STRIKES. BRIEF WIND GUSTS
TO 40 MPH WILL ALSO BE POSSIBLE IN SOME OF THE STRONGER
STORMS...WHICH WILL MOVE TOWARD THE WEST TO NORTHWEST AT ABOUT 10
MPH.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
LOCALIZED FLOODING CONTINUES TO BE A CONCERN ACROSS EAST CENTRAL
FLORIDA. DEEP MOISTURE REMAINS IN PLACE ACROSS THE CENTRAL
PENINSULA...WHICH ALONG WITH SLOW STORM MOVEMENT WILL ALLOW STRONGER
SHOWERS AND STORMS TODAY TO PRODUCE 1 TO 3 INCHES OF RAINFALL IN A
60 TO 90 MINUTE PERIOD. ANY HEAVY RAINFALL ON THE ALREADY
SATURATED GROUND FROM THE PREVIOUS WEEK OF HEAVY RAIN WILL
AGGRAVATE ANY ONGOING STANDING WATER AND FLOODING ISSUES AND LEAD
TO ADDITIONAL FLOODING ESPECIALLY IN LOW LYING AREAS.

MOTORISTS ARE REMINDED TO NEVER DRIVE OVER WATER COVERED ROADS AS
THE WATER MAY BE TOO DEEP TO ALLOW YOUR VEHICLE TO CROSS SAFELY AND
MAY OBSCURE WASHOUTS...CULVERTS OR OTHER LOW SPOTS.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING LOCAL WIND GUSTS TO
AROUND 35 KNOTS OVER THE LOCAL ATLANTIC AS WELL AS INLAND LAKES AND
THE INTRACOASTAL WATERS. BOATERS SHOULD BE ALERT FOR STORMS
APPROACHING FROM THE EAST AND SOUTHEAST TODAY. SEEK SAFE HARBOR IF
SKIES LOOK THREATENING.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
THE SAINT JOHNS RIVER AT ASTOR REMAINS AT ACTION STAGE AND EVEN
WITHOUT ADDITIONAL RAIN...WILL LIKELY TO STAY AT OR NEAR THAT LEVEL
FOR SEVERAL MORE DAYS...CAUSING MINOR INUNDATION OF PROPERTY AND
RIVER ACCESSES IN THE AREA.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
WEATHER AND OCEAN CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE TO PRODUCE MODERATE
THREAT FOR RIP CURRENTS AND ROUGH SURF AT AREA BEACHES TODAY. THE
THREAT WILL BE HIGHEST BETWEEN ABOUT NOON AND 6 PM DUE TO TIDAL
EFFECTS. CHECK WITH YOUR LOCAL BEACH PATROL FOR ADDITIONAL
INFORMATION ABOUT OCEAN HAZARDS. SWIM ONLY WITHIN SIGHT OF A
LIFEGUARD...AND NEVER SWIM ALONE.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SUNDAY THROUGH FRIDAY.
EASTERLY FLOW WILL SHIFT THE BEST RAIN CHANCES OVER THE INTERIOR
THROUGH THE REMAINDER OF THE WEEKEND WITH RAINFALL CHANCES REMAINING
ABOVE NORMAL. A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO MOVE ACROSS
NORTH FLORIDA EARLY NEXT WEEK BRINGING ANOTHER WEAKENING FRONTAL
BOUNDARY INTO THE CENTRAL FLORIDA PENINSULA THROUGH MID WEEK. THE
THREAT FOR LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL WILL CONTINUE THROUGH THE
PERIOD...WITH AGGRAVATION OF STANDING WATER PROBLEMS AND
INUNDATION OF ROADS AND OTHER POORLY DRAINED URBAN AND LOW LYING
AREAS POSSIBLE.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
AS FLOODING REMAINS A CONCERN...SPOTTERS ARE REQUESTED TO MONITOR
THE WEATHER AND SELF ACTIVATE IF ANY WARNINGS ARE ISSUED FOR YOUR
AREA. PLEASE CONTINUE TO REPORT ANY RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 2 INCHES OR
MORE...AND REPORT ANY INSTANCES OF SIGNIFICANT FLOODING OF PROPERTY
OR ROADS.
