THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
A WARM FRONT LOCATED NORTH OF LAKE OKEECHOBEE THIS MORNING WILL
LIFT RAPIDLY NORTHWARD ACROSS CENTRAL FLORIDA THIS MORNING AND
NORTH OF THE AREA BY THIS AFTERNOON. THIS WILL CARRY WIDESPREAD
LOW CLOUDS AND LIGHT RAIN WITH IT...ALLOWING FOR MORE DAYTIME
HEATING AND INSTABILITY. SCATTERED SHOWERS AND LIGHTNING A FEW
LIGHTNING STORMS ARE EXPECTED TO REDEVELOP BY THIS AFTERNOON
MAINLY INLAND FROM THE COAST. DUE TO STRONG LOW LEVEL WINDS...
A FEW WIND GUSTS TO 40 OR 50 MPH WILL BE POSSIBLE...SHOULD ANY
STRONGER STORMS DEVELOP. LOCALLY HEAVY DOWNPOURS AND OCCASIONAL
LIGHTNING STRIKES ARE ALSO POSSIBLE. STORM MOTION TODAY WILL
BE RAPIDLY TOWARD THE NORTH AND NORTHEAST AT 35 TO 40 MPH.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
DUE TO THEIR RAPID MOVEMENT...HEAVIER SHOWERS OR STORMS WILL BE
EASILY CAPABLE OF PRODUCING GUSTY WINDS OF AT LEAST 35 KNOTS ON
AREAS LAKES...THE INTRACOASTAL WATERWAY AND NEAR SHIRE ATLANTIC.
BOATERS SHOULD BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR STORMS APPROACHING FROM THE
SOUTH TODAY.

.WIND AND SEA IMPACT...
SOUTHEAST WINDS OF 20 TO 25 KNOTS WILL VEER TO SOUTHERLY AND
SLOWLY DECREASE TONIGHT. SEAS OF 7 TO 9 FEET NEAR SHORE AND
9 TO 11 FEET WELL OFFSHORE WILL MAKE FOR ANOTHER DAY OF DANGEROUS
BOATING CONDITIONS FOR OPERATORS OF SMALL CRAFT.

.COASTAL FLOOD IMPACT...
THE HIGH SEAS WILL PRODUCE BREAKING WAVES OF UP TO AROUND 6 FEET
IN THE SURF ZONE...WHICH COULD PRODUCE MINOR BEACH EROSION AROUND
THE TIME OF THIS MORNING`S HIGH TIDE...WHICH WILL OCCUR AT AROUND
800 AM.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
IN ADDITION TO THE ROUGH SURF...NUMEROUS STRONG RIP CURRENTS ARE
EXPECTED AGAIN TODAY.  THERE WILL ALSO BE AN INCREASING LONGSHORE
CURRENT FLOWING FROM SOUTH TO NORTH TODAY. WITH THE SURF BEING
ROUGH ONCE AGAIN TODAY...LARGE BREAKING WAVES COULD KNOCK YOU OFF
YOUR FEET AND MAKE YOU MORE SUSCEPTIBLE TO BECOMING CAUGHT IN A
RIP CURRENT. ENTERING THE SURF ABOVE YOUR KNEES WILL BE DANGEROUS
TODAY.

GIVEN THE ROUGH SURF CONDITIONS...BEACH GOERS ARE STRONGLY ADVISED
TO GET ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ON OCEAN HAZARDS FROM THE BEACH PATROL.
IF YOU DECIDE TO ENTER THE WATER...SWIM ONLY WITHIN SIGHT OF A
LIFEGUARD...AND NEVER SWIM ALONE.


.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
AN APPROACHING COLD FRONT WILL KEEP A THREAT FOR LIGHTNING STORMS
IN THE FORECAST MONDAY AND TUESDAY.

LINGERING SWELLS WILL LEAD TO AN INCREASED THREAT FOR RIP CURRENTS
THROUGH THE EARLY PART OF THE WEEK. WINDS AND SEAS WILL INCREASE
AGAIN WEDNESDAY AND THURSDAY BEHIND A COLD FRONTAL PASSAGE...WITH
POOR TO HAZARDOUS SMALL CRAFT BOATING CONDITIONS EXPECTED.


.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
