THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
PLENTY OF AVAILABLE MOISTURE IN THE ATMOSPHERE AND DAYTIME HEATING
ALLOWS THE EAST COAST SEA BREEZE TO FORM BY NOON AT THE COAST AND START
PUSHING INLAND EARLY AFTERNOON. AS THE SEA BREEZE MOVES INLAND
OVER AN INCREASINGLY MORE UNSTABLE ATMOSPHERE...STORMS START
DEVELOPING ALONG AND JUST BEHIND THE SEA BREEZE AS IT MOVES OVER
THE COASTAL AREAS. STORMS CONTINUE TO FORM ALONG THE SEA BREEZE AS
IT PUSHES INLAND DURING THE AFTERNOON. THE PRIMARY WEATHER HAZARDS
FROM THE STORMS TODAY WILL BE CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHT STRIKES...WIND
GUSTS TO 40 MPH AND LOCALLY HEAVY RAIN. COOLING TEMPERATURES IN
THE MIDDLE LAYERS OF THE ATMOSPHERE WILL INCREASE THE POTENTIAL
FOR HAIL.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A SUBSIDING LONG PERIOD NORTHEAST SWELL WILL CONTINUE TO PRODUCE A
MODERATE RIP CURRENT RISK HAZARD AT THE ATLANTIC BEACHES TODAY. CHECK
WITH THE LIFE GUARDS OR BEACH PATROL ABOUT SURF CONDITIONS BEFORE
ENTERING THE SURF. DO NOT ENTER THE WATER ALONE.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
BOATERS ON INLAND WATERS MAY EXPERIENCE AN ISOLATED WIND GUST
NEAR 35 KNOTS ASSOCIATED WITH NEARBY OR DISTANT STORMS.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.
SWELLS FROM DISTANT TROPICAL STORM CRISTOBAL WILL DIMINISH THROUGH
THE WEEKEND BUT WILL BRING AN ELEVATED RIP CURRENT HAZARD ALONG
THE EAST FLORIDA BEACHES EACH DAY.

THUNDERSTORM COVERAGE WILL INCREASE INTO THE WEEKEND AS WINDS
SHIFT TO THE SOUTH AND PUSH HIGHER MOISTURE BACK ACROSS EAST
CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTERS ARE REQUESTED TO MONITOR THE WEATHER AND SELF ACTIVATE
IF NEEDED.
