THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
ADDITIONAL DEEP MOISTURE WILL BUILD INTO CENTRAL FLORIDA FROM THE
SOUTH TODAY. THE INCREASED MOISTURE COMBINED WITH INSTABILITY
PROVIDED BY AN UPPER LEVEL TROUGH TO THE NORTH WILL PRODUCE AN
INCREASED COVERAGE OF SHOWERS AND STORMS TODAY COMPARED TO PAST
DAYS. SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL FORM FIRST NEAR THE TREASURE COAST
EARLY THIS AFTERNOON WITH ACTIVITY EXPANDING NORTHWARD ALONG THE
DEVELOPING EAST COAST SEA BREEZE. THROUGH MID AND LATE AFTERNOON
COVERAGE WILL SHIFT INTO THE INTERIOR AS THE SEA BREEZE PUSHES
INLAND. BOUNDARY INTERACTIONS OVER THE INTERIOR WILL ENHANCE
CONVECTIVE DEVELOPMENT WEST OF I 95 THROUGH THE LATE AFTERNOON.

STEERING FLOW WILL BE WEAK RESULTING IN SLOW STORM MOTION AND
LOCALLY VERY HEAVY RAIN. A FEW WIND GUSTS TO 45 MPH WILL BE POSSIBLE
WITH THE STRONGEST STORMS. DEADLY CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING WILL
ALWAYS BE A THREAT FROM SUMMER FLORIDA LIGHTNING STORMS.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
STORM MOTION WILL BE SLOW SO A FEW OF THE STRONGER ONES COULD DUMP
A QUICK 2 OR 3 INCHES OF RAIN...CAUSING CONSIDERABLE WATER PONDING
ON ROADWAYS.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
AN EAST SWELL WILL RESULT IN AN ENHANCED THREAT FOR RIP
CURRENTS...ESPECIALLY ACROSS THE BREVARD AND VOLUSIA COUNTY
COASTLINES. BEACHGOERS SHOULD ONLY SWIM AT GUARDED BEACHES AND
SHOULD CHECK WITH BEACH PATROL ABOUT OCEAN HAZARDS BEFORE ENTERING
THE SURF. NEVER SWIM IN THE OCEAN ALONE.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
THERE IS A CHANCE FOR STORMS WITH GUSTY 30 TO 35 KNOT WINDS OVER
THE COASTAL WATERS. THE STRONGEST STORMS WILL AGAIN BE OVER THE
PENINSULA THIS AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING. STORM MOTION WILL BE
SLOW AND ERRATIC. BOATERS ON INLAND LAKES SHOULD PLAN TO GET OFF
THE WATERS BY EARLY AFTERNOON. A FEW STRONG STORMS WITH FREQUENT
LIGHTNING STRIKES AND GUSTY WINDS TO AROUND 40 MPH ARE EXPECTED.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
A CONTINUED LIGHT SOUTHEAST TO 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...
SPOTTERS ARE REQUESTED TO MONITOR THE WEATHER AND SELF ACTIVATE
IF NEEDED.
