THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
SHOWERS AND LIGHTNING STORMS DEVELOPING ALONG AND AHEAD OF THE WEST
COAST SEA BREEZE WILL MOVE NORTHEAST ACROSS THE REGION...REACHING
LAKE COUNTY AND THE KISSIMMEE RIVER SHORTLY AFTERNOON...FARTHER
EASTWARD INTO THE INTERIOR FROM EARLY THROUGH MID AFTERNOON...AND
THEN FINALLY INTO THE EAST COAST COUNTIES BY LATE AFTERNOON. THERE
MAY BE A LATE DAY COLLISION WITH THE EAST COAST SEA BREEZE NEAR THE
TREASURE COAST LATE IN THE DAY.

OCCASIONAL TO FREQUENT LIGHTNING STRIKES ARE THE MAIN HAZARD WITH
ANY STORM THAT DEVELOPS. A FEW STRONGER STORMS WILL ALSO BE ABLE TO
PRODUCE GUSTY WINDS TO AROUND 40 OR 50 MPH AND HEAVY RAINFALL. HEAD
INDOORS AT THE FIRST SIGN OF DARKENING SKIES TO THE WEST...OR IF YOU
SEE LIGHTNING OR HEAR THUNDER.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
STORMS ACROSS THE REGION TODAY WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING WIND
GUSTS IN EXCESS OF 40 MPH AS THEY MOVE TO EAST-NORTHEAST AT 15 TO
25 MPH. MARINERS SHOULD BE ON THE LOOKOUT FOR STORMS RAPIDLY
APPROACHING FROM THE WEST AND REMEMBER THAT STRONG WINDS CAN ARRIVE
WELL AHEAD OF THE HEAVY RAIN AND LIGHTNING ASSOCIATED WITH STORMS.

.RIP CURRENT IMPACT...
A COMBINATION OF A SMALL OCEANIC SWELL AND TIDAL EFFECTS WILL
CONTINUE TO PRODUCE A LOW TO MODERATE THREAT FOR RIP CURRENTS AT
LOCAL BEACHES TODAY. CHECK WITH THE LOCAL BEACH PATROL FOR
ADDITIONAL INFORMATION. ALWAYS SWIM WITHIN SIGHT OF A LIFEGUARD.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...THURSDAY THROUGH TUESDAY.
SCATTERED AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE
EXPECTED THROUGH THE WEEKEND. CLOUD TO GROUND LIGHTNING STRIKES WILL
BE THE PRIMARY HAZARD...ALONG WITH LOCAL HEAVY RAINFALL AND GUSTY
WINDS IN STRONGER STORMS. PREVAILING OFFSHORE FLOW WILL KEEP HIGH
TEMPERATURES A FEW DEGREES ABOVE NORMAL AND PUSH STORMS OFFSHORE
OVER THE INTRACOASTAL AND NEARSHORE ATLANTIC EACH AFTERNOON AND
EVENING.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTERS ARE REQUESTED TO MONITOR THE WEATHER AND SELF ACTIVATE
IF NEEDED.
