THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
EARLY AFTERNOON LIGHTNING STORMS WILL DEVELOP OVER THE COASTAL
COUNTIES AS THE SEA BREEZE BOUNDARY STRENGTHENS AND MOVE SLOWLY
INLAND. STORM MOTION WILL BE TOWARD THE NORTH OR NORTHWEST WITH A
GRADUAL INCREASE IN COVERAGE AND INTENSITY THROUGH LATE AFTERNOON.
THE STRONGEST BOUNDARY INTERACTIONS ARE FORECAST TO OCCUR NEAR AND
WEST OF INTERSTATE 4 DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON TO EARLY EVENING.

THE MAIN THUNDERSTORM HAZARD WILL BE FROM LIGHTNING STRIKES WHICH
COULD BECOME FREQUENT IN ISOLATED STRONGER STORMS...ESPECIALLY
ACROSS INTERIOR SECTIONS OF THE PENINSULA. WIND GUSTS 40 TO 50 MPH
ARE ALSO EXPECTED WITH ISOLATED STRONG STORMS.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
A FEW STRONGER STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING LOCALLY HEAVY
RAINFALL OF TWO OR THREE INCHES IN A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. THIS
WOULD CAUSE MINOR FLOODING OF ROADWAYS AND POOR DRAINAGE AREAS...
ESPECIALLY WHERE HEAVY RAIN HAS FALLEN RECENTLY.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
WEATHER AND OCEAN CONDITIONS WILL PRODUCE A MODERATE RISK FOR
DANGEROUS RIP CURRENTS AT EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA BEACHES TODAY. CHECK
WITH LIFEGUARDS ABOUT OCEAN HAZARDS BEFORE ENTERING THE SURF. SWIM
ONLY WHERE THERE IS A LIFEGUARD ON DUTY.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
A FEW STRONGER STORMS THROUGH EARLY EVENING MAY PRODUCE WIND
GUSTS OVER 35 KNOTS FROM INLAND LAKES TO THE INTRACOASTAL WATERS.
SMALL BOAT OPERATORS SHOULD BE PREPARED TO MOVE TO SAFE HARBOR
AHEAD OF STORMS. STORM MOTION WILL BE TO THE NORTH OR NORTHWEST
AROUND 5 TO 10 MPH...SO SOME STRONG WIND GUSTS COULD PUSH OFFSHORE
FROM ABOUT CAPE CANAVERAL NORTHWARD.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...WEDNESDAY THROUGH MONDAY.
THE ATLANTIC HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE IS FORECAST TO SHIFT JUST TO THE
NORTH OF THE AREA FOR MID TO LATE WEEK...LOWERING SHOWER AND
THUNDERSTORM CHANCES. HIGHER MOISTURE RETURNS AGAIN THIS WEEKEND
AND INTO EARLY NEXT WEEK WITH A GRADUAL INCREASE FOR SHOWER AND
STORM CHANCES.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTERS ARE REQUESTED TO MONITOR THE WEATHER AND SELF ACTIVATE
IF NEEDED. RAINFALL SPOTTERS SHOULD REPORT AMOUNTS OVER TWO INCHES.
