THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
A VERY MOIST ATMOSPHERE COMBINED WITH SOME DAYTIME HEATING WILL
LEAD TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS. THE FOCUS FOR STORMS
BY EARLY AFTERNOON WILL BE WITH THE EAST COAST SEA BREEZE. A
GRADUAL INCREASE IN COVERAGE AND INTENSITY WILL OCCUR THROUGH LATE
AFTERNOON...WITH A GRADUAL INLAND SHIFT OF THE STORMS. A FEW
STRONG STORMS WILL PRODUCE FREQUENT LIGHTNING STRIKES AND GUSTY
WINDS 40 TO 45 MPH.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
STORM MOTION WILL ONCE AGAIN BE VERY SLOW SO A FEW OF THE STRONGER
STORMS WILL PRODUCE 2 TO 3 INCHES OF RAIN IN AN HOUR...CAUSING
CONSIDERABLE WATER PONDING ON ROADWAYS.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A LINGERING EAST SWELL WILL RESULT IN A MODERATE RISK. THE
GREATEST CHANCE FOR STRONG RIP CURRENTS SHOULD BE THIS MORNING AND
EARLY AFTERNOON DUE TO TIDAL EFFECTS. CHECK WITH OCEAN RESCUE
PERSONNEL ABOUT OCEAN HAZARDS WHEN ARRIVING AT THE BEACH AND ONLY
ENTER THE SURF NEAR A LIFEGUARD.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
SCATTERED SHOWERS AND ISOLATED STORMS MAY AFFECT THE COASTAL AND
INTRACOASTAL WATERS THIS MORNING...ESPECIALLY FROM SEBASTIAN INLET
SOUTHWARD. THERE IS A CHANCE FOR GUSTS TO 30 KNOTS WITH A FEW OF
THE STORMS. CELL MOTION WILL BE TO THE NORTH OR NORTHEAST AT LESS
THAN 10 KNOTS. SCATTERED STORMS WILL AFFECT THE INLAND LAKES THIS
AFTERNOON. A FEW WILL BE STRONG AND PRODUCE WINDS AROUND 40 MPH.
BOATERS SHOULD BE PREPARED TO GET OFF THE INLAND WATERS BY EARLY
AFTERNOON.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
A CONTINUED LIGHT SOUTH WIND FLOW WILL KEEP HIGH MOISTURE OVER
THE AREA INTO 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.
