THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
EASTERLY FLOW WILL BRING IN A SLIGHTLY DRIER AIRMASS ACROSS EAST
CENTRAL FLORIDA TODAY. HOWEVER...THERE REMAINS ENOUGH DEEP MOISTURE
THAT SCATTERED TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND ISOLATED LIGHTNING STORMS
WILL DEVELOP THIS AFTERNOON.

WIDELY SCATTERED SHOWERS OVER THE ATLANTIC WILL IMPACT THE COAST
THIS MORNING...WITH ONSHORE FLOW QUICKLY PUSHING ACTIVITY ACROSS THE
PENINSULA THROUGH THE LATE MORNING AND AFTERNOON. THE HIGHEST RAIN
CHANCES WILL BE FOCUSED MAINLY WEST OF LAKE GEORGE...ORLANDO AND
DISNEY AND INTO 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. ACTIVITY WILL
MOVE TOWARD THE WEST-NORTHWEST AT AROUND 10 MPH.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
WHILE COVERAGE OF SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL NOT BE AS HIGH IN MANY
LOCATIONS AS PREVIOUS DAYS...HIGH LOW LEVEL MOISTURE AND SLOW
STORM MOVEMENT WILL BRING THE CONTINUING THREAT FOR LOCALLY HEAVY
RAINFALL ACROSS EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA. STRONGER SHOWERS AND STORMS
MAY PRODUCE 1 TO 3 INCHES OF RAINFALL IN A 60 TO 90 MINUTE
PERIOD...WHICH WILL AGGRAVATE ANY ONGOING STANDING WATER AND
FLOODING ISSUES AND LEAD TO ADDITIONAL FLOODING ESPECIALLY IN LOW
LYING AREAS. THE THREAT FOR LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL WILL BE HIGHEST
OVER THE INTERIOR THIS AFTERNOON AND EVENING.

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.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
THE SAINT JOHNS RIVER AT ASTOR REMAINS AT ACTION STAGE AND EVEN
WITHOUT ADDITIONAL RAIN...IS FORECAST TO REMAIN ABOVE THAT LEVEL
THROUGH LATE WEEK...CAUSING MINOR INUNDATION OF PROPERTY AND RIVER
ACCESSES IN THE AREA.

ADDITIONAL HEAVY RAINFALL ACROSS THE REGION WILL ALSO ADD TO THE
WATER LEVELS IN CREEKS...RIVERS AND LAKES THAT HAVE RECEIVED
SIGNIFICANT AMOUNTS OF RAIN THE PAST SEVERAL DAYS.

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

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
WEATHER AND OCEAN CONDITIONS WILL CONTINUE TO PRODUCE MODERATE
THREAT FOR RIP CURRENTS AND ROUGH SURF AT AREA BEACHES TODAY. 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...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
A LOW PRESSURE SYSTEM IS FORECAST TO MOVE ACROSS NORTH FLORIDA AND
INTO THE ATLANTIC EARLY THIS WEEK BRINGING ANOTHER 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. ANOTHER FRONTAL BOUNDARY IS FORECAST TO MOVE INTO
THE REGION BY THE END OF THE WEEK.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
AS LOCAL FLOODING REMAINS A CONCERN ACROSS THE REGION...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.
