THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
SHOWERS AND STORMS WILL DEVELOP AT THE COAST EARLY THIS AFTERNOON
ALONG THE EAST COAST SEA BREEZE AS WELL AS ALONG OTHER WEAK
CONVERGENCE BOUNDARIES ACROSS THE REGION. THE FOCUS WILL SHIFT
INTO THE INTERIOR THROUGH THE AFTERNOON AND EVENING WITH A GRADUAL
INCREASE IN COVERAGE AND INTENSITY AS THE SEA BREEZE MOVES INLAND
AND COLLIDES WITH THE WEST COAST SEA BREEZE.

STRONGER STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING WIND GUSTS IN EXCESS
OF 50 MPH ALONG WITH FREQUENT LIGHTNING STRIKES.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
SLOW STORM MOTION WILL A FEW OF THE STRONGER STORMS TO PRODUCE
2 TO 3 INCHES OF RAIN IN AN HOUR. THIS WILL CAUSE CONSIDERABLE
WATER PONDING ON ROADWAYS AND MINOR FLOODING OF LOW LYING AND POOR
DRAINAGE AREAS.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
A FEW STORMS WILL DEVELOP EARLY THIS AFTERNOON ALONG THE EAST
COAST SEA BREEZE NEAR THE INTRACOASTAL WATERWAY AND NEAR SHORE
ATLANTIC WATERS. SOME OF THESE STORMS MAY MOVE OFF OF THE
COAST...ESPECIALLY NORTH OF SEBASTIAN INLET. CELL MOTION WILL BE
TO THE 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.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A LINGERING EAST SWELL WILL RESULT IN A CONTINUING MODERATE RISK
OF RIP CURRENTS AT AREA BEACHES. THE GREATEST CHANCE FOR STRONG
RIP CURRENTS WILL BE THROUGH MID 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.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
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.
