THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...THIS AFTERNOON AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
EARLY AFTERNOON ISOLATED LIGHTNING STORMS WILL OCCUR ON THE EAST
COAST SEA BREEZE...PRIMARILY ALONG THE SPACE AND TREASURE COAST.
MOVEMENT WILL BE NORTHWARD AND INLAND WITH A GRADUAL INCREASE IN
COVERAGE AND INTENSITY THROUGH LATE AFTERNOON.  THE STRONGEST
BOUNDARY INTERACTIONS ARE FORECAST TO OCCUR NEAR AND WEST OF
INTERSTATE 4 DURING THE LATE AFTERNOON TO EARLY EVENING.

THE MAIN THUNDERSTORM HAZARD WILL BE FROM LIGHTNING STRIKES WHICH
COULD BECOME FREQUENT IN ISOLATED STRONGER STORMS...ESPECIALLY
ACROSS INTERIOR SECTIONS OF THE PENINSULA. WIND GUSTS 40 TO 50 MPH
ARE ALSO EXPECTED WITH ISOLATED STRONG STORMS.

.FLOOD IMPACT...
A FEW STRONGER STORMS WILL BE CAPABLE OF PRODUCING LOCALLY HEAVY
RAINFALL OF TWO OR THREE INCHES IN A SHORT PERIOD OF TIME. THIS
WOULD CAUSE MINOR FLOODING OF ROADWAYS AND POOR DRAINAGE AREAS...
ESPECIALLY WHERE HEAVY RAIN HAS FALLEN RECENTLY.

.MARINE THUNDERSTORM GUST IMPACT...
A FEW STRONGER STORMS THROUGH EARLY EVENING MAY PRODUCE WIND GUSTS
OVER 35 KNOTS FROM INLAND LAKES TO THE INTRACOASTAL WATERS.
SMALL BOAT OPERATORS SHOULD BE PREPARED TO MOVE TO SAFE HARBOR AHEAD
OF STORMS. STORM MOTION WILL BE TO THE NORTH OR NORTHEAST AROUND 5
TO 10 MPH...SO SOME STRONG WIND GUSTS COULD PUSH OFFSHORE FROM ABOUT
CAPE CANAVERAL NORTHWARD.

.DAYS TWO THROUGH SEVEN...TUESDAY THROUGH SUNDAY.
HIGHER MOISTURE WILL KEEP THE CHANCE FOR SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS
ABOVE AVERAGE INTO TUESDAY. THE ATLANTIC HIGH PRESSURE RIDGE IS
FORECAST TO SHIFT JUST TO THE NORTH OF THE AREA FOR MID TO LATE
WEEK...LOWERING SHOWER AND THUNDERSTORM CHANCES.

.SPOTTER INFORMATION STATEMENT...
SPOTTERS ARE REQUESTED TO MONITOR THE WEATHER AND SELF ACTIVATE
IF NEEDED. RAINFALL SPOTTERS SHOULD REPORT AMOUNTS OVER TWO INCHES.
