THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
DEEP MOISTURE AND DAYTIME HEATING WILL RESULT IN ANOTHER AFTERNOON
OF NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND SCATTERED STORMS. THE MAIN THREATS FROM
TODAY`S STORMS ONCE AGAIN WILL BE TORRENTIAL RAINFALL...AND CLOUD TO
GROUND LIGHTNING STRIKES. BRIEF WIND GUST TO 40 MPH WILL ALSO BE
POSSIBLE IN SOME OF THE STRONGER STORMS...WHICH WILL MOVE TOWARD THE
NORTH TO NORTHWEST AT ABOUT 10 MPH.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
LOCALIZED FLOODING REMAINS A SIGNIFICANT CONCERN ACROSS EAST CENTRAL
FLORIDA. HEAVY RAIN HAS FALLEN ACROSS MANY AREAS OVER THE PAST
SEVERAL DAYS...AND SOME COMMUNITIES CONTINUE TO HAVE STANDING WATER.
TODAY`S STRONGER STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF DUMPING 1 TO 3 INCHES IN
A 60-90 MINUTE PERIOD WITH THE POTENTIAL FOR MULTIPLE ROUNDS OF
STORMS PRODUCING HIGHER AMOUNTS IN A FEW LOCATIONS. THIS WILL CAUSE
ROAD AND PROPERTY FLOODING...ESPECIALLY IN POOR DRAINAGE AREAS...AND
OTHER LOCATIONS THAT HAVE STANDING WATER FROM RECENT HEAVY RAINS.

MOTORISTS ARE REMINDED TO NEVER DRIVE OVER WATER COVERED ROADS AS
THE WATER MAY BE TOO DEEP TO ALLOW YOUR VEHICLE TO CROSS SAFELY...
AND MAY OBSCURE WASHOUTS...CULVERTS OR OTHER LOW SPOTS.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
STORMS WILL ALSO BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING LOCAL WIND GUSTS TO
AROUND 35 KNOTS OVER INLAND LAKES AS WELL AS THE INTRACOASTAL AND
NEAR SHORE ATLANTIC WATERS. BOATERS SHOULD BE ALERT FOR STORMS
APPROACHING FROM THE SOUTH AND SOUTHEAST TODAY. SEEK SAFE HARBOR
IF SKIES LOOK THREATENING.

.WATERSPOUT IMPACT...
ATMOSPHERIC CONDITIONS REMAIN FAVORABLE FOR DEVELOPMENT OF FUNNEL
CLOUDS OR WATERSPOUTS NEAR OR OVER THE INTRACOASTAL WATERWAY...THE
NEAR SHORE ATLANTIC...AND THE NORTH SHORE OF LAKE OKEECHOBEE.

.RIVER FLOOD IMPACT...
THE SAINT JOHNS RIVER AT ASTOR IS NOW AT ACTION STAGE AND EVEN
WITHOUT ADDITIONAL RAIN...WILL LIKELY TO STAY AT OR NEAR THAT
LEVEL FOR SEVERAL MORE DAYS...CAUSING MINOR INUNDATION OF PROPERTY
AND RIVER ACCESSES IN THE AREA. SHINGLE CREEK NEAR CAMPBELL HAS
CONTINUED TO SLOWLY FALL AS WEDNESDAY`S HEAVIEST RAINS AVOIDED
THAT AREA. SHOULD ADDITIONAL HEAVY RAIN FALL IN EITHER OF THESE
TWO AREAS...IT WOULD RESULT IN RENEWED WATER LEVEL RISES...WHICH
COULD CAUSE ADDITIONAL FLOODING CONCERNS.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
WEATHER AND OCEAN CONDITIONS WILL PRODUCE A LOW TO MODERATE THREAT
FOR RIP CURRENTS AT AREA BEACHES TODAY. THE THREAT WILL BE HIGHEST
BETWEEN ABOUT NOON AND 6 PM DUE TO TIDAL EFFECTS. CHECK WITH YOUR
LOCAL BEACH PATROL FOR ADDITIONAL INFORMATION ABOUT OCEAN HAZARDS.
SWIM ONLY WITHIN SIGHT OF A LIFEGUARD...AND NEVER SWIM ALONE.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...FRIDAY THROUGH WEDNESDAY.
RAINFALL CHANCES WILL REMAIN ABOVE NORMAL THROUGH EARLY NEXT
WEEK. THE THREAT FOR LOCALLY HEAVY RAINFALL WILL CONTINUE...WITH
AGGRAVATION OF STAND WATER PROBLEMS...INUNDATION OF ROADS AND
OTHER POORLY DRAINED URBAN AND LOW LYING AREA POSSIBLE.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
AS FLOODING REMAINS A CONCERN...SPOTTERS ARE REQUESTED TO MONITOR
THE WEATHER AND SELF ACTIVATE IF ANY WARNINGS ARE ISSUED FOR YOUR
AREA. PLEASE CONTINUE TO REPORT ANY RAINFALL AMOUNTS OF 2 INCHES
OR MORE...AND REPORT ANY INSTANCES OF FLOODING OF ROADS OR
PROPERTY.
