THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
SLIGHTLY DRIER AND MORE STABLE AIR WILL PUSH INTO CENTRAL FLORIDA
TODAY...RESULTING IN A LOWER CHANCE FOR AFTERNOON AND EVENING
THUNDERSTORMS THAN IN RECENT DAYS. ISOLATED TO SCATTERED
THUNDERSTORMS WILL DEVELOP ACROSS EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA SOUTH OF
CAPE CANAVERAL AND LAKE KISSIMMEE BY EARLY AFTERNOON BEFORE
SHIFTING NORTH TOWARD THE ORLANDO METROPLEX AND THE DAYTONA BEACH
AREAS. INTERACTION OF STORMS WITH THE EAST COAST SEA BREEZE MAY
ALLOW SOME STRONG STORMS AGAIN DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON AND
EARLY EVENING. THE HIGHEST STORM COVERAGE WILL BE AROUND THE LAKE
OKEECHOBEE REGION.

DESPITE THE LOWER STORM CHANCES...ANY STORMS THAT DO DEVELOP WILL
PRODUCE DANGEROUS CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING AND WILL BE CAPABLE OF
PRODUCING STRONG WIND GUSTS. REMEMBER...LIGHTNING MAKES EVEN THE
WEAKEST THUNDERSTORM A POTENTIAL KILLER. MOVE INDOORS IMMEDIATELY
IF THUNDER IS HEARD.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
SCATTERED STORMS WILL MOVE TO THE EAST AT 10 TO 15 MPH.  AN EAST
COAST SEA BREEZE IS EXPECTED TO FORM ALONG THE SPACE AND TREASURE
COASTS BY EARLY AFTERNOON. A FEW STRONG STORMS WITH GUSTY WINDS
TO 40 MPH OR GREATER. BOATERS SHOULD MOVE TO SAFE HARBOR AS
DARKENING SKIES ARE OBSERVED ON THE WESTERN HORIZON.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...MONDAY THROUGH SATURDAY.
DRIER AIR WILL REMAIN NEAR THE SURFACE AS THE ATLANTIC RIDGE AXIS
DRIFTS INTO CENTRAL FLORIDA DURING THROUGH THE MIDDLE OF NEXT
WEEK. ISOLATED TO SCATTERED SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE EXPECTED
EACH AFTERNOON. HOT WEATHER IS EXPECTED WITH HIGHS INTO THE MID
90S ACROSS THE INTERIOR THROUGH MUCH OF NEXT WEEK.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTER ACTIVATION WILL NOT BE NEEDED TODAY.
