THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
LOW PRESSURE WILL  MOVE NORTHEAST ACROSS THE FLORIDA PANHANDLE THEN
INTENSIFY TONIGHT AS IT LIFTS ACROSS GEORGIA TO THE COASTAL
CAROLINAS. INCREASING MOISTURE WILL BRING A CHANCE FOR STORMS FROM
LAKE COUNTY ACROSS METRO ORLANDO TO CAPE CANAVERAL AND VOLUSIA
COUNTY LATE THIS AFTERNOON. INCREASING LOW LEVEL WIND SHEAR MAY
PRODUCE STORM ORGANIZATION AND THERE IS A SMALL CHANCE FOR STRONG TO
SEVERE STORMS.

A BAND OF SHOWERS AND STORMS ALONG AN ADVANCING COLD FRONT IS
FORECAST TO PUSH INTO NORTHERN SECTIONS LATE THIS EVENING THEN
GRADUALLY PUSH DOWN THE PENINSULA OVERNIGHT. INCREASING WIND FIELDS
ABOVE THE SURFACE WILL PRODUCE A RISK OF STRONG WIND GUSTS TO 50 MPH
OR HIGHER...PRIMARILY FROM LAKE COUNTY ACROSS METRO ORLANDO TO
CAPE CANAVERAL AND VOLUSIA COUNTY

.HIGH WIND IMPACT...
A LAKE WIND ADVISORY IS IN EFFECT FOR SOUTHEAST TO SOUTH WINDS 15 TO
25 MPH...WITH OCCASIONAL GUSTS 30 TO 35 MPH. THIS WILL PRODUCE
HAZARDOUS CONDITIONS FOR BOATERS ON AREA LAKES AND THE INTRACOASTAL
WATERS.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
CURRENTS IN THE SURF ZONE WILL POSE A MODERATE THREAT. A NORTHWARD
FLOWING LONGSHORE CURRENT WILL EXIST...WHICH SOMETIMES IS DANGEROUS
FOR WEAK SWIMMERS THAT GET PUSHED OFF THE SAND BAR INTO DEEPER
WATERS. STRONG RIP CURRENTS ARE ALSO LIKELY NEAR PIERS AND JETTIES.
CHECK WITH OCEAN RESCUE PERSONNEL ABOUT OCEAN HAZARDS BEFORE
ENTERING THE SURF.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
SCATTERED SHOWERS AND ISOLATED STORMS WILL PUSH OFFSHORE MAINLY FROM
CAPE CANAVERAL NORTHWARD LATE THIS AFTERNOON...THEN NORTH OF
SEBASTIAN INLET DURING THE OVERNIGHT HOURS. STORM MOTION WILL BE
FAST...TOWARD THE NORTHEAST AT 30 TO 40 MPH. GUSTY WINDS UP TO 35
KNOTS WILL BE POSSIBLE IN A FEW STORMS.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
BOATING CONDITIONS WILL DETERIORATE THROUGH TONIGHT. OVER THE
OFFSHORE WATERS...SOUTHEAST TO SOUTH WINDS AROUND 20 KNOTS WILL
BECOME SOUTHWEST TONIGHT AND INCREASE 25 TO 30 KNOTS WITH FREQUENT
GUSTS TO GALE FORCE. CLOSER TO THE COAST...SMALL CRAFT SHOULD
EXERCISE CAUTION THIS AFTERNOON FOR INCREASING SOUTH WINDS AND VERY
CHOPPY WIND WAVES. THEN A SMALL CRAFT ADVISORY WILL GO INTO EFFECT
THIS EVENING AS SOUTH TO SOUTHWEST WINDS INCREASE.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...SATURDAY THROUGH THURSDAY.
ISOLATED STORMS WITH GUSTY WINDS MAY ACCOMPANY THE FRONTAL PASSAGE
EARLY SATURDAY MORNING. WINDY CONDITIONS WILL OCCUR BEHIND THE COLD
FRONT SATURDAY WITH WEST TO NORTHWEST WINDS 20 TO 25 MPH AND
FREQUENT GUSTS TO GALE FORCE OFFSHORE. THESE HAZARDOUS BOATING
CONDITIONS WILL ALSO OCCUR OVER INLAND LAKES AND THE INTRACOASTAL
WATERS.

A BRIEF INTERVAL OF DIMINISHED WINDS WILL OCCUR SUNDAY BUT AN
INCREASED WESTERLY WIND FLOW IS EXPECTED MONDAY...WITH HAZARDOUS
BOATING CONDITIONS CONTINUING THROUGH MID TO LATE WEEK AS WINDS
GRADUALLY TURN NORTHERLY.

BELOW NORMAL TEMPERATURES ARE EXPECTED DURING THIS PERIOD BUT
FREEZING TEMPERATURES ARE NOT FORECAST AT THIS TIME.

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