THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL INCREASE IN COVERAGE THIS AFTERNOON
ACROSS THE INTERIOR AND ALONG THE INLAND MOVING EAST COAST SEA
BREEZE. GREATEST COVERAGE OF STORMS WILL OCCUR OVER THE INTERIOR
LATE THIS AFTERNOON WITH ANY BOUNDARY COLLISIONS THAT OCCUR.
CONVECTION THAT RESULTS FROM THIS COLLISION WILL THEN PUSH
NORTHEAST BACK TOWARD THE COAST INTO THE EVENING HOURS. A FEW
STORMS COULD BECOME STRONG TO SEVERE NEAR AND NORTH OF INTERSTATE
4 WITH STRONG WIND GUSTS IN EXCESS OF 50 MPH...FREQUENT LIGHTNING
AND SMALL HAIL. TORRENTIAL RAINFALL AMOUNTS UP TO 2 TO 3 INCHES IN
A 60 TO 90 MINUTE PERIOD COULD PRODUCE LOCALIZED TEMPORARY URBAN
OR ROAD FLOODING AND PONDING OF WATER IN POORLY DRAINED LOW LYING
AREAS.

STORMS WILL MOVE TOWARD THE NORTHEAST AT 15 TO 20 MPH EARLY THIS
AFTERNOON...WITH STORM MOTION AS HIGH AS 25 TO 30 MPH TO THE NORTH
OF ORLANDO AND TITUSVILLE FROM LATE THIS AFTERNOON INTO THE EARLY
EVENING.

KEEP ABREAST OF WEATHER CONDITIONS TODAY...AND MOVE INDOORS TO
SAFETY IN ADVANCE OF THREATENING WEATHER.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
STORMS WILL ALSO BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING STRONG WIND GUSTS IN
EXCESS OF 35 KNOTS OVER INLAND LAKES...THE INTRACOASTAL AND NEAR
SHORE ATLANTIC WATERS. BOATERS SHOULD BE AWARE OF THE THREAT FOR
STRONG STORMS APPROACHING RAPIDLY FORM THE SOUTHWEST LATER TODAY.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
WEATHER AND OCEAN CONDITIONS WILL ONCE AGAIN PRODUCE A MODERATE
THREAT FOR RIP CURRENTS AT AREA BEACHES TODAY. THE THREAT WILL BE
HIGHEST FROM LATE AFTERNOON THROUGH SUNSET...DUE TO TIDAL EFFECTS.
CHECK WITH YOUR LOCAL BEACH PATROL ABOUT OCEAN HAZARDS WHEN YOU
ARRIVE AT THE BEACH. ALWAYS SWIM WITHIN SIGHT OF A LIFEGUARD AND
NEVER SWIM ALONE.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
SOUTHERLY WINDS AROUND 15 TO 20 KNOTS WILL OCCUR ACROSS THE
OFFSHORE WATERS OF VOLUSIA COUNTY THROUGH THIS AFTERNOON AND
TONIGHT. OPERATORS OF SMALL CRAFT SHOULD EXERCISE CAUTION IF
VENTURING INTO THESE WATERS.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY.
BOATING CONDITIONS WILL BECOME HAZARDOUS ONCE AGAIN BY THURSDAY
AS LARGE SWELLS FROM DISTANT HURRICANE GONZALO START TO PROPAGATE
INTO THE LOCAL ATLANTIC WATERS. THIS WILL ALSO SIGNIFICANTLY
INCREASE THE THREAT FOR RIP CURRENTS AT AREA BEACHES.

THE SAINT JOHNS RIVER AT ASTOR AND NEAR GENEVA HAS DROPPED BELOW
ACTION STAGE. THERE IS THE CHANCE THAT THE COMBINATION OF LOCALLY
HEAVY RAINFALL...NORTHERLY WINDS AND TIDAL EFFECTS COULD CAUSE THE
RIVER TO TEMPORARILY RISE BACK UP TO ACTION STAGE AT ASTOR FROM
WEDNESDAY NIGHT INTO THURSDAY.

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