THIS HAZARDOUS WEATHER OUTLOOK IS FOR EAST CENTRAL FLORIDA.

.DAY ONE...TODAY AND TONIGHT.

.THUNDERSTORM IMPACT...
ISOLATED SHOWERS AND LIGHTNING STORMS WILL MOVE ALONG THE TREASURE
COAST EARLY THIS MORNING IN A MOISTURE RICH ENVIRONMENT. SCATTERED
TO NUMEROUS SHOWERS AND THUNDERSTORMS ARE AGAIN FORECAST THIS
AFTERNOON INTO EARLY EVENING. CONSIDERABLE CLOUD COVER MAY LIMIT
DIRECT HEATING FROM THE SUN THIS MORNING WHICH COULD DELAY THE SEA
BREEZE CIRCULATION FROM SETTING UP. BUT SINCE THE ATMOSPHERE IS SO
MOIST...MODEST HEATING IN THE AFTERNOON WILL EVENTUALLY LEAD TO
INCREASED COVERAGE OF THUNDERSTORMS AND SHOWERS.

THE MAIN THUNDERSTORM HAZARD WILL BE FROM LIGHTNING STRIKES WHICH
COULD BECOME FREQUENT IN ISOLATED STRONGER STORMS DURING THE LATE
AFTERNOON AND EARLY EVENING...ESPECIALLY ACROSS INTERIOR SECTIONS OF
THE PENINSULA. IF ENOUGH SURFACE HEATING DEVELOPS...A FEW OF THE
STRONGER STORMS MAY ALSO PRODUCE WIND GUSTS 40 TO 50 MPH.

.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 AND NEAR SHORE
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.

.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.
